Mattis' Pentagon Goes Rogue, Backs Iran Deal, Opposes Trump

As some people I know complain: It's amazing how a couple of cute nick-names ("Mad Dog," "Warrior Monk") and some memes will insulate someone against a realistic assessment of their agenda.

So here's the Mad Dog in action.

On the heels of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's firing, due to his defiance of President Trump in support of the Iran nuclear deal, rogue Pentagon officials under Secretary of Defense James Mattis are waging their own campaign to keep the deal with the terrorist regime in Tehran.

In amazing testimony before the Senate, Gen. Joseph Votel, who serves as the leader of U.S. Central Command, told stunned senators that he, Defense Secretary Mattis, and Joint Chiefs Chairman Joe Dunford all support the nuclear deal.

"From my perspective, the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] addresses one of the principal threats that we deal with from Iran," Votel said, adding, "So, if the JCPOA goes away, then we will have to have another way to deal with the nuclear weapons program."
