Obama assigned him to that position,I suppose he believes he can replace him. "General Mattis was travelling and in a meeting when an aide passed him a note telling him that the Pentagon had announced his replacement as head of Central Command. It was news to him — he hadn’t received a phone call or a heads-up from anyone at the Pentagon or the White House."<quoted text>
Obama just sacked Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis from U.S. Central Command without telling him. In fact no one told him! He found out in a press release!! And the press release does not even explain why he was relieved!!!
Obama has utter contempt for our military.
" …the commander-in-chief can make a change whenever he wants and give no reason. That is right and proper under our system of government." Obama never served in the military and has always held disdain for military and its tradition. Obama hold s disdain of all our counties traditional values.
