Just a thought, surely General Mattis reading list is known now?

Had the honor of meeting the man in Kandahar in January 2002. If there are any other members who were present at that time I was the short DEA agent and not the big dumb goofy looking one. Just want to set the record straight.

Default General Mattis

Does anybody know the title of the book he gave to President Trump when he met with him this past weekend?

I didn't hear the title, the grape vine rumor said it was a book on civil-military relations. An appropriate topic.

Seems to be taking a long time for him to decide. Curious if he has reservations about moving to the Civilian side of the Pentagon.

I can wait. If he takes the job I will feel a lot better about Trump's Foreign Policy Team. Still want to see who gets State.

In interview today, Trump said that he was surprised that Mattis was against waterboarding. Wonder if that will affect Trump's thinking on Mattis?

When it comes to torture, clearly Mattis has a greater understanding of the issue than Trump. But Trump has made his position clear. This may be a deal breaker. Hoping not. Trump needs some dissenting opinions in his cabinet.

Default Possible Book for Trump from Gen. Mattis

Warriors and Citizens
by General Jim Mattis, Kori Schakevia Books by Hoover Fellows
Tuesday, August 2, 2016


Fifteen prominent experts on civil-military relations analyze data from the largest survey since 1998 of American public attitudes about military issues in order to explore the ways the public is losing connection to its military
