Robert Lee was quoted in Federal News Radio about Donald Trump’s pick to head the Air Force:

Wilson falls in line with Trump’s other service secretary picks: wealthy, business-oriented, experienced in their services, but also outsiders. Robert M. Lee, a cybersecurity fellow at New America and former officer in the Air Force, agreed. “She has had what I would consider military, private sector and congressional level responsibilities. That’s exactly the type of person you’d want. Too often do we see folks in political appointee positions that have absolutely no experience,” Lee said.
Lee said he thinks the biggest issue, even over cybersecurity and the aging nuclear fleet, is personnel and morale.
