I get that James Mattis is more comfortable speaking candidly about the Bush and Obama administrations than about his experience under President Trump. So here are some questions journalists could ask that he should be willing to answer. (1)
Did Bush or Obama ever rob money from military schools, child care programs, and bases around the world to pay for a domestic project that Congress refused to fund? (2)
Did Bush or Obama ever invite the Taliban or other terrorists to Camp David, or contemplate a deal in which the US would stop fighting them, without making them promise to stop terrorism? (3)
Did Bush or Obama ever announce they were in love with Kim Jong Un or say they were easing up sanctions against an adversary country because they personally liked that country's dictator? (4)
Did Bush or Obama ever give overtly partisan speeches to troops or lie to them that they were the only presidents to give them pay raises? (5)
Did Bush or Obama deploy troops overseas while virtually never visiting them abroad or comforting wounded warriors and their families at home? (6)
Did Bush or Obama ever try to interfere in the military justice system on behalf of service members accused of war crimes? (7)
Did Bush or Obama ever suspend military aid to a US ally to pressure it to investigate their political opponents? (8)
