Petition Background

Iraq war architect and Iran war advocate John Bolton is reportedly one of four candidates being interviewed for National Security Adviser. [1] CNN says there are "signs of strong support inside and outside the administration for Bolton." [2]

Foreign Service veteran Greg Thielmann calls Bolton a "prime mover of the Iraq WMD fiasco." [3] Senator Rand Paul calls Bolton a "bad choice" who contradicts Trump's criticisms of the Iraq war, noting that "Bolton still believes the Iraq War was a good idea, he still believes regime change is a good idea." [4] J Street says Bolton is a "completely inappropriate choice" for "any role related to America’s relations with the rest of the world." [5]

Urge President Trump and Members of Congress to oppose the nomination of John Bolton to be National Security Adviser by signing our petition.
