Former George W. Bush administration official William Luti confirmed to National Review Online he met with Rick Perry last week, along with other national security experts.
“Yes, I was invited by and met with Governor Perry last week,” Luti e-mails. “I was happy to discuss my views on national security with him as I would if asked by any other presidential candidate.”
Also meeting Perry last week was NR’s own Andy McCarthy — a fact which I learned about after reporting on the initial meeting. (NR secret internal memos are always devious, but not necessarily exhaustively comprehensive, apparently.)
