Mattis: President not repeating obama
« on: September 10, 2019, 03:30:58 PM »
 MISTAKES from Iraq withdrawal.

Via Newsmax:


Saying his deal-breaking stance against a full withdrawal in Syria might have helped the U.S. keep troops there – and slow the pullout in Afghanistan – former Defense Secretary James Mattis will let the “historians” weigh his lasting impact on the Middle East and Afghanistan peace deal talks with Taliban leadership.

“I’ll let the historians sort that out,” Mattis told CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “I don’t know what all went into the decision to reverse that call to pull everyone out, but I can’t answer that.”

Mattis, promoting his book “Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead,” told host Margaret Brennan the Obama administration made a costly mistake with a full withdrawal in Iraq, and President Donald Trump has thus far avoided repeating that mistake.
