Advising new administration on SyriaThe incoming president and his national security team suffer no shortage of free advice on a full range of national security and foreign policy issues. Defeating Daesh in Syria will be a high priority for the incoming administration.Russia, Iran and the Assad regime have tried to neutralize these American-equipped rebel units: Daesh, after all, is a useful foil for Bashar Assad.Immediate action items aside, the incoming team must organize itself for the long haul: a requirement transcending Syria. This means establishing a foreign policy management system enabling the new president and his national security adviser to get sound policy options from the departments and agencies of government, while delegating the necessary authorities to implement presidential decisions.What has happened in Syria has not stayed in Syria.The Trump administration is inheriting in Syria and elsewhere bad conditions made immeasurably worse by bad White House leadership and management practices.
