National Security Council

James L. Jones, Obama's US National Security Advisor tells CFR "I take orders from Kissinger"

File this in the "way things really work" folder...or is it the "you can't make this stuff up" folder?

"U.S. National Security Adviser Jones gave these remarks at the 45th Munich Conference on Security Policy at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof on February 8, 2009.

"Thank you for that wonderful tribute to Henry Kissinger yesterday. Congratulations. As the most recent National Security Advisor of the United States, I take my daily orders from Dr. Kissinger, filtered down through Generaal Brent Scowcroft and Sandy Berger, who is also here. We have a chain of command in the National Security Council that exists today."
