Policy adviser to Trump, Cruz: 'Either of them would be fine'

A former top military intel chief under President Obama said Wednesday that he advises both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz on foreign policy, and said he could support either of them as president.

"I think either of them would be fine," Michael Flynn told a roundtable of panelists on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Wednesday morning.

Flynn is a retired U.S. Army lieutenant general who served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and the commander of the Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, among other positions. He made a point Wednesday to tell the roundtable before talking about the 2016 race that America missed the rise of the Islamic State "really badly."

"One of the things that we have to face up to is just how difficult it is going to be to do what I think the president has asked the military and the nation to do — I think I would call the strategy a minimalist strategy focused on Iraq and Syria and it's much, much worse than that," Flynn said.

According to Flynn, the U.S. "didn't want to see" that al Qaeda in Iraq was going to morph into the Islamic State.
