US Defense Secretary James Mattis abruptly announced his resignation in protest against President Donald Trumps decisions including pulling troops out of Syria and a drawdown in Afghanistan. With the ousting this month of John F. Kelly as White House chief of staff, James Mattis was the last of Mr. Trumps old-guard national security team, leaving policy in the hands of Mike Pompeo and John Bolton.
