After leaving a cabinet position, the next step is writing your memoir.
Mattis has a memoir, which takes swipes at President Trump, and is promoting it with a WSJ piece titled, “Duty, Democracy and the Threat of Tribalism.”
Good. We’re getting lectures on the threat of tribalism from the guy who once said this, “”The death of Qari Yasin is evidence that terrorists who defame Islam and deliberately target innocent people will not escape justice.”
Mattis had built a cult of personality around himself. The way a lot of top generals do. He certainly was not the right guy to implement big picture policy. And yet that’s exactly what he’s lecturing about. The international order and all the usual tidbits of the smart and stupid set.
