11/13/20 Mark Perry: the Revenge of Colonel Douglas Macgregor

Pentagon reporter Mark Perry discusses the recent appointment of retired Colonel Douglas Macgregor to a senior advisory position under President Trump’s new secretary of defense. Perry calls Macgregor one of the greatest military minds in America; after a distinguished Army career that included one ofAmerica’s swiftest and most lopsided victories in the Persian Gulf War’s Battle of 73 Easting, Macgregor became a military historian and scholar. He continues to openly share his sometimes unconventional views of the U.S. military, including the need to get out of our forever-wars as quickly as possible. Perry and Scott both suspect that this is why Trump has appointed him, and fervently hope that he will be able to deliver on his plans for peace.
