‘He knows that the indispensable item that is going to help provide stability and security to the world is strong American leadership’

KEANE: " I know Jim Mattis well. This is an absolutely terrific choice if this is a decision that President-elect Trump is going the make and it looks like he’s heading in that direction. Why? He’s an experienced wartime commander, as you noted. He is very thoughtful and insightful. He is absolutely conversant with all, I mean all of the global security challenges that are currently facing the United States and he knows that the indispensable item that is going to help provide stability and security to the world is strong American leadership."
