Speaking of Mattis keeping other people awake at night:

"This is the Ambassador of Turkey!  We do not approve!

"Tough shit."
The arming decision comes as Secy. of Defense James Mattis has ordered changes in strategy against ISIS. Mattis describes the change as moving from an “attrition strategy,” which allowed ISIS fighters to escape current battles, to an “annihilation strategy,” which involves encirclement and total destruction. Mattis has also given battlefield commanders increased leeway in decision-making, which under Obama often involved seeking time-consuming approval all the way back to the White House.
This is the kind of thing you see with a SecDef and President who actually want to WIN this.
