My Campaign for SECAF Has Ground to an Ignominious EndComments
With his choice for Secretary of Air Force, Donald Trump had yet another opportunity to fill a cabinet position with someone who a) would be hopelessly overwhelmed by the job, and b) believed that the agency in question should be abolished. But instead of hiring me, he went with someone merely likely to be incompetent:

For shame, President Trump. With respect to Wilson’s actual credentials, she’s not that far off the norm for such positions- long-term connections with Air Force, service in Congress, some high-level national security policymaking experience- but she has less experience at the Pentagon and in industry than the last few individuals to fill the job.
