White House Aide goes active duty
This type of commitment eludes College Republicans.
A senior foreign policy adviser in the Obama administration will leave the White House in the next week or so, returning to military service for another deployment as an intelligence officer with the Navy SEALs. Mark Lippert, a naval reservist, is the deputy national security adviser for operations and serves as chief of staff of the National Security Council. Before President Obama took office, Lippert was his top foreign policy aide in the Senate.
