Several high profile members of the Defense Policy Board were removed on Wednesday by the Trump administration, in yet another purge of longstanding foreign policy experts and national security establishment figures in the final days of the Trump era, according to three defense officials.
Members who were suddenly removed include former Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and Henry Kissinger, former ranking member of the House Intelligence committee Jane Harman and former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, two of the officials said. The Defense Policy Board is an outside advisory group of former high profile national security officials who "provide the Secretary of Defense and the Deputy Secretary of Defense, independent, informed advice and opinions concerning matters of defense policy in response to specific tasks from the Secretary of Defense, the Deputy Secretary of Defense," according to their website.
"As part of long-considered changes, we can confirm that several members of the Department's Defense Policy Board have been removed. We are extremely grateful for their dedicated service, commitment, and contributions to our national security. Future announcements for new members of the board will be made soon," the third official said.

Kissinger is 97!
“...the final days of the Trump era.”
Boy, are they gonna be surprised.
Keep whistling past the Kraken...
A really comical complaint.
Henry Kissinger was the only one in the group that has any idea what he is doing....and the problem with him is we don’t have any idea what he is doing.
Why the hell did Trump ever have those horrific people (at least some of them)?
If Biden is sworn in then they’ll all be back on the board.
You can’t fool God. He knows all of the deception..
Kissinger is an old pro at overthrowing regimes
Boy, are they gonna be surprised
The trolls seem to be off busy eating or so
Do these clowns get paid?
I think with articles like this, the media is pushing for an overthrow of Trump and early installation of Biden. Won’t happen, but why else run these type of stories for a board that no one ever heard of.
By the way, I just figured out why Trump had all of these failures from the past on the board - he wanted to know exactly what NOT to do, regarding foreign policy. Very smart, in hindsight.
Kissinger. Albright, Cantor, and Harman are WORTHLESS in these roles.
No loss at all.
I remember Eric Cantor as a reliable conservative. This was before Virginia got overrun by left wingers, illegals, H1-B foreigners who all vote Rat.
I am wondering if he was an anti-Trumper?
Maybe President Trump is appointing true American patriots to all these positions in government so when he invokes the Insurrection Act he will have a solid support group (along with 80 million who voted for him). He needs to fumigate Washington DC.
The 9-11 failure can be pinned on Thighs as far as I’m concerned.
Removed expert communists and globalists...redundant....winning...MAGA!!!
They're nervous. They don't know why he's doing anything. They figure he should be sulking in his bedroom. They don't see any reason he could have for making changes. It's like a breath of air on a spider web every time he moves someone around like that, and the spider takes a few nervous steps, thinking "what is that? Is that a fly? No? What IS that?"
