Lt. General McMaster’s Silver Star Was Essentially Earned for Target Practice

Resume inflation at the NSC

So really, what have we got here as our newly anointed National Security Advisor to the president? A guy sporting an inflated medal which probably should have been one of those colorful ribbon badges you get for demonstrating good marksmanship which help fill out the rainbow of little ribbons on a typical general’s dress uniform, a book that takes some easy swipes at a few dead generals, and a record of killing perhaps hundreds of civilians and sitting-duck Iraqi soldiers in the course of his two short combat commands.

Okay, so maybe McMaster’s not "in like Flynn," but that’s setting a pretty low bar.
