As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by Fox News:
A column co-authored by former U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis which called for an end to President Trump’s “America First” foreign policy did not include a disclosure regarding the retired four-star general’s work with the Cohen Group, an international business advisory firm active in China.
Mattis was one of four listed authors for the column published by Foreign Affairs and entitled “Defense in Depth: Why U.S. Security Depends on Alliances—Now More Than Ever.” The column said the United States’ “principal external threat” was an “aggressive and revisionist China—the only challenger that could potentially undermine the American way of life” and called for a shift toward increased international cooperation to counteract China’s influence.
The article goes on to state the following:
The column disclosed Mattis’ roles as a fellow at the Hoover Institution and the former Secretary of Defense, but did not reference his work with the Cohen Group, where he has served as a “senior counselor” since September 2019. The firm, which advises clients on international business deals, has two offices located in China.
The report notes that The Washington Times was the first to catch Mattis’s failure to disclosure his role with the company.
“America first” in practice has meant “America alone,” and that approach has undermined the United States’ security in the face of global threats, write former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, @KoriSchake, Jim Ellis, and @JoeFelter.https://t.co/mbhCmgvqkt
