Jim Mattis, Marine General Turned Defense Secretary, Will Leave Pentagon in February



By Helene Cooper

Dec. 20, 2018

WASHINGTON — Jim Mattis, the four-star Marine general turned defense secretary, will retire at the end of February, President Trump said on Thursday.

Mr. Mattis’ departure comes a day after the president announced his decision to withdraw 2,000 American troops from Syria over the objections of senior military officials.

His departure leaves the Trump administration without one of the few officials viewed as standing between a mercurial president and global tumult.
