Trump Gives Mattis Full Power to Destroy ISIS! Now We Can Make Some Real Progress

Under a new policy, Secretary Mattis now is able to set troop levels in Iraq and Syria to match the requirements of the mission. This new authority comes after the Pentagon decided in late March to no longer announce the number of troops are dedicated to fight ISIS.

Pentagon and Central Command spokesmen have applauded the change.

Restoring FML [force management level] decisions to the Secretary of Defense enables military commanders to be more agile, adaptive and efficient in supporting our partners, and enables decisions that benefit unit readiness, cohesion and lethality.”

At present, the United States has around 5,000 troops in Iraq advising and assisting Iraqi Security Forces in the battle against ISIS. Hundreds of special force operators are embedded with local forces with approximately 400 U.S. Marines providing artillery support. Pentagon spokesmen say there have been no charges in troop levels.

President Trump initiated the troop level policy change as part of his broader push to delegate tactical authority to the Pentagon while focusing on broader strategic issues.

The increasingly lax oversight is already being felt in the ground war against Islamic terrorists. ‘There is a sense among these commanders that they are able to do a bit more – and so they are.’ “

The Trump decision shows his management style, very much in the same style of a business CEO who recruits top executives to carry out strategic initiatives and policy implementation.

Some media sources are speculating that Trump will grant Mattis more authority to launch anti-terrorist raids without seeking White House approval.
