Lisa Curtisto take up the position of senior director for South and Central Asia
Lisa Curtis, senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation has been tapped by National Security Adviser Herbert R. McMaster, to take up the position of senior director for South and Central Asia. Curtis has accepted and is currently being vetted, according to a report in the Washington Post.
Curtis also has wide ranging experience in different parts of government – as an analyst at the CIA, an adviser to the State Department during the George W. Bush presidency, and on Capitol Hill at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
In picking Curtis, the Post said, McMaster scuttled Gen. Flynn’s choice of Brigadier Robin Fontes, currently the defense attache at the U.S. embassy in New Delhi.
