Obama actually thought that Valerie Jarret was with in the military chain of command until some Air Force General had to expalin to Jarret that "yes civilians run the military but you are the wrong civilian."
But still Valerie Jarrett can be seen walking though the hallways of the Pentagon and nobody is questioning why, except me.
BTW: We know who's Obama's senior, numero uno, # 1 national security adviser is, Susan Rice. How many remember when the Sudan government offered to turn over Osama bin Laden to the USA back in 1996 that it was Susan Rice with in the Clinton administration who opposed taking Bin Laden into custody.
