#1 Jim Mattis, says it would add burdensome bureaucracy and unwanted costs.

As do all government initiatives. General Mattis correct again. The only difference here is, given the task, Mattis will salute, smile, and make it happen.

#3 The PENTAGON complaining about "burdensome bureaucracy and unwanted costs" Unbelievable.
