Arrow Mattis Reflects on Serving as Trumpís Defense Secretary

Mattis Reflects on Serving as Trumpís Defense Secretary

Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis speaks out for the first time since resigning his post in a Wall Street Journal essay:

ďUsing every skill I had learned during my decades as a Marine, I did as well as I could for as long as I could. When my concrete solutions and strategic advice, especially keeping faith with our allies, no longer resonated, it was time to resign, despite the limitless joy I felt serving alongside our troops in defense of our Constitution.Ē

ďUnlike in the past, where we were unified and drew in allies, currently our own commons seems to be breaking apart. What concerns me most as a military man is not our external adversaries; it is our internal divisiveness. We are dividing into hostile tribes cheering against each other, fueled by emotion and a mutual disdain that jeopardizes our future, instead of rediscovering our common ground and finding solutions.Ē

Amen.
