Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the man Donald Trump has picked to be his national security adviser, built a reputation in the Army as an astute intelligence professional and a straight talker. What set Flynn apart after he shed his uniform in 2014 was the blistering public criticism he quickly leveled at the White House and Pentagon, taking issue with a wide range of national security policies, including the administration's approach to fighting Daesh (ISIS) and, more generally, its handling of global affairs.Flynn later explained that he had been paid for taking part in the event, but brushed aside concerns that he was aiding a Russian propaganda effort.Flynn's military experience might have made him seem like a natural choice to lead the Pentagon.Flynn retired from the Army after two turbulent years as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Pentagon's top spy agency.Flynn would not be the first retired general to be asked to serve as part of a president's national security team.
