Mattis: Woodward Book On Trump "Fiction"

Yeah, I settled down over the course of the day, and began to have my doubts.

Except for the transcript of Woodward’s call wi H Trump, where he goes into his working methods:


BW: Yeah, well, it names real incidents, so . ..

Trump: No, but do you name sources? I mean, are you naming the people, or just say, people have said?

BW: I say, at 2:00 on this day, the following happened, and everyone who’s there, including yourself, is quoted. And I’m sorry I didn’t get to ask you about these . ..

Also, there is an old tradition, not limited to the American military, known as CYA.

You might want to look into it.

The contemptuous words about the president attributed to me in Woodward’s book were never uttered by me or in my presence," Mattis said in a statement. "While I generally enjoy reading fiction, this is a uniquely Washington brand of literature, and his anonymous sources do not lend credibility."
