Petraeus, Kellogg, Harward: Here Are Possible Flynn Replacements for Trump's Security Adviser

Posted February 15, 2017

Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, who had previously been appointed the National Security Council Chief of staff, is the brother of Jeff Kellogg, a former city councilman and current member of the Long Beach City College Board of Trustees.

Former CIA Director David PetraeusBackground: The most well-known of the potential replacements, Petraeus is a retired Army four-star general. He also went on to command the 82nd Airborne Division, which is, according to The Nation, known as the world's largest army parachute division. Kellogg held very prominent positions at each one of the contracting companies and seemingly continued his work in the private sector up until he began advising the Trump administration.

"You are the first to see the President in the morning when the President shows up for work in the Oval Office and the last person to see the President before he or she makes any major foreign policy or national security decision", Stephen Hadley, a former national security adviser to President George W. Bush - and a potential contender for the post - wrote a year ago about the position in a paper for the Scrowcroft Institute.

President Donald Trump is considering three former high ranking military officials for the post of National Security Advisor, after the Monday resignation of Michael Flynn.

He plead guilty to the findings and subsequently served a probation period of two years, as well as paying a $100,000 fine.

Harward served under Mattis while he was at U.S. Central Command and remains an ally and friend of the defense secretary.

Harward spent nearly 40 years in the Navy and was on President George W. Bush's National Security Council with experience in several Middle Eastern countries as well as Somalia and Bosnia.

Kellogg later joined another tech contractor, CACI, in 2005, and then left for a defense contractor, Cubic Defense, in 2009, where he was responsible for the firm's "ground combat training business". Harward is reportedly the favorite to succeed Flynn.
