Wall Street Journal: Barack ‘O’Bama’ and His Irish-American Advisers

President Barack Obama‘s choice of Gen. Joe Dunford to be chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is a reminder that among those in a position to influence U.S. global strategy, it’s the Irish who have almost all the top jobs.

Mr. Obama’s senior national-security team has included Tom Donilon as national security adviser, John Brennan at the Central intelligence Agency, Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense, Gen. Martin Dempsey as Joint Chiefs chairman, and Denis McDonough as White House chief of staff. Plus, don’t forget Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry—an honorary Irish-American because of his last name, Catholic upbringing, and his Massachusetts political base as a senator.

WNU Editor: And one must also not forget President Obama's own Irish roots .... Barack Obama’s Irish Family Tree. Hmmmm .... I smell a massive Irish conspiracy here. :)
