Obama shares condolences for former national security adviser to Carter

Washington [U.S.A.], May 27: Zbigniew Brzezinski, national security adviser to former United States President Jimmy Carter, passed away on Saturday.

Former presidents are remembering Jimmy Carter's national security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski (ZBIG'-nyef breh-ZHIN'-skee), as an "influential voice" who "shaped decades of American national security policy".

His death was announced on social media by his daughter, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, but she did not give the cause of his death.

"My father passed away peacefully tonight", she wrote in the Instagram post.

"He was the godfather of the Taliban, al-Qaeda and Daesh".

Brzezinski was born in Warsaw on March 28, 1928. He attended McGill University in Montreal then earned a doctorate from Harvard, later becoming a USA citizen.

"He was brilliant, dedicated and loyal", said Carter, who awarded Brzezinski the Presidential Medal of Freedom days before leaving office in 1981.

The German-born Kissinger and Polish-born Brzezinski were considered foreign-policy realists with innate distrust of the Soviet Union.

Investigators also worked with regional and western news outlets and non-government organizations active in the area, he said. On March 17, the Iraqi troops - the USA -trained Counter-Terror Services - had planned to advance into the neighborhood.

He managed to delay implementation of the SALT II arms treaty in 1979 by raising objections to Soviet behavior in Vietnam, Africa and Cuba; and when the Soviets went into Afghanistan late that year, "SALT disappeared from the U.S".

Brzezinski served as a special counselor to President Lyndon Johnson.

Becoming a USA citizen in 1958, Brzezinski was active in the Council of Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group and later the Trilateral Commission, private groups of US business executives, intellectuals and politicians who work to strengthen USA ties overseas through dialogue.

Also in 1978, Brzezinski helped Carter to attain the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty.

"Zbigniew Brzezinski is gone". He was 89 years old. Brzezinski characteristically favored military action to free the 52 American hostages and punish Iran.

In an opinion piece written with Paul Wasserman for the New York Times in February, Brzezinski criticized the Trump administration for lacking coherence in its foreign policy.

In a 2011 book, "Strategic Vision: America and the Crisis of Global Power", Brzezinski argued in favor of strengthening the USA presence overseas to maintain global stability.
