The president’s new national security adviser, Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, does not believe that radical Islam is the root cause of Islamic terrorism. Because of this I urge President Trump to discharge his latest selection to the position and replace him with former ambassador John Bolton.

If we fail to identify the enemy exactly by name we are certainly going to perceive the problem incorrectly and allow political correctness to blind us. For this reason Gen. McMaster should be replaced in this significant role.

One of the most significant changes that the clear-minded Trump advocates have been pushing for is an end to the Barack Obama and George W. Bush illusions that the root of terrorism in the Muslim community is not a direct result of the radical intolerance and violence framed clearly in the Koran, Sharia and the Hadith.

This illusion must end and Gen. McMaster is not the right one to end it.
