I'd trust Gen. Mattis over pretty much anyone ever in Washington.


Maybe they do a coupon when you buy the book or give to a charity dealing in butt-hurt leftists. I will guarantee that it'll make the NYT best sellers list if leftists have to mortgage their homes and buy every copy.



You're STILL using butthurt? Lol. Try reading trump's tweets on any day at all if you want to see butthurt. Constant crying, whining, moaning, misleading, and feeling hard done by.

It's amazing how happy you guys are to stifle free speech when it's not on your terms.

If the book is "pure fiction" (an objectively ridiculous assertion) then the appropriate libel laws will be used to sue accordingly. Much like the Fire and Fury book. Oh wait, that one went quiet too.

What is so very predictable...the msm taking this shot
to write rumors that General Mattis is going to be ousted
over this. That speaks volumes...the so called resistance
is scared they cant seem to find a way to stop the POTUS.

Desperation..

But I think they did discuss the assasination of Assad. And in general I can see both being men who speak their minds. Just that the public couldn't handle it as well if it came out they are calling eachother fifth graders is mild in comparison.

I'm going to trust what Secretary Mattis has to say.

He strikes me as being a very honorable man. And the tone of his denial sounds like he's pissed off.

I'd say General Mattis probably knows how to kill you in more ways than you know how to die. I wouldn't want to be on his bad side.

Woodward, asked on Monday on NBC's "Today" show about their denials, said, "They are not telling the truth." He said "these are political statements to protect their jobs."


Yahoo with AP link


This reinforces it for me, Woodward failed to verify the information the way he used to.

Mattis stuck to his guns even though it cost him his job under Obama, he doesn't need this job beyond wanting to continue serving his country. A ground pounder combat marine could live very very well on a generals retirement, yet this formerly reputable reporter wants to disparage the general for the sake of his hit piece.


He should have just said my sources beg to differ, but to call the generals liars and state they are just trying to save their job, nope I am done with him he sold his soul.
