Fmr CIA Director Brennan: I Think Tillerson Was Fired for Being ‘Far Too Principled,’ Haspel ‘Should Be
Under the Constitution, the legislature, the Congress and Senate, are in charge of domestic policy. The President of the United States effectively sets foreign policy. That’s the way it designed to work.
Therefore the President, with the advice and consent of the Senate, gets to appoint the Secretary of State, his chief foreign affairs adviser. One would naturally assume that anyone the president chooses would be on the same page, as it were. After all, it’s the Secretary’s job to implement the President’s foreign policy designs. It is certainly not the job of him or her to develop or attempt to implement his or her own policy. The State Department is there to do the president’s bidding. In other words, one might say that the Secretary should be “sufficiently loyal” to the President.
