I have noticed some interesting things. A poster mentioned that having an acting Sec Def for a long period was unusual and the President should appoint a new SecDef. I note that the QMap Players in the Game was recently updated with Smollett so I would guess that it is up to date. [....]
Our 0311Warrior said that SecDef Mattis was lurking on the thread. I am wondering if he really resigned. It seemed scripted at the time as I thought that the man who said “Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet” would be part of this until the end.
Anyone else think that the reason there is not a new SecDef is because there is a SecDef in place?
