John Bolton is a bit like the barking dog that finally catches the car: What does he do now? Bolton surely has never once imagined himself as an "honest broker," the quality that usually defines a successful national security adviser, the post he's about to assume.Instead, Bolton has cultivated the image of a provocateur, bureaucratic infighter and permanent enfant terrible. Bolton's test as national security adviser is that he'll now be the person responsible for overseeing a process he instinctively mistrusts.Bolton must realize that the interagency structure isn't working well.Bolton relishes his confrontational reputation. Maybe Bolton's appointment sends Pyongyang a message that Trump isn't bluffing.Bolton should ponder one last time whether U.S. and Israeli security truly will be enhanced by the agreement's collapse.With Bolton, the war Cabinet is complete.
