Rambo's trigger-happy rampage through Vietnam in the movie, "First Blood: Part II," pales in comparison to the way Chief of Staff Donald Regan is cleaning out the White House.
The most recent exit of Robert McFarlane as national security adviser, and one of the Administration's few steady voices on international arms diplomacy, is a high price to pay just so Regan can further consolidate his stifling iron grip on the Oval Office.
Regan is commanding the White House as if it were under siege. I wish someone would tell the former Marine officer that he's in the White House, not the Halls of Montezuma, and on the banks of the Potomac, not the Shores of Tripoli.
His beachhead mentality would be better if it were reserved for more traditional Marine activities; like those undertaken in the first term of the Administration.
