Defense Secretary Jim Mattis Resigns

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis resigns, scolding Trump over his military judgment

Wilson, a Democrat, was considered both a progressive and a defense hawk. While his efforts to arm the mujahideen in the 1980s were a success — spurring a victory that helped speed the downfall of the Soviet Union — he was unable to keep the money flowing after the Soviets left. Afghanistan plunged into chaos, creating an opening eventually filled by the Taliban, which harbored al-Qaida terrorists.
After the Sept. 11 attacks — carried out by al-Qaida terrorists trained in Afghanistan — the U.S. ended up invading the country it had once helped liberate.
