Blunt-spoken retired Marine Corps General James Mattis emerged as a leading candidate for defense secretary.

On Sunday, Trump tweeted that "General James 'Mad Dog' Mattis, who is being considered for Secretary of Defense, was very impressive yesterday. A true General's General!"

From 2010 to 2013, Mattis headed the U.S. military's Central Command, which oversees operations stretching from the Horn of Africa through the Middle East and into Central Asia including Afghanistan and Pakistan. During that time, he was at odds with the Obama administration on the need to prepare for potential threats from Iran and about resources for Afghanistan.

Mattis, 66, served as an American commander in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and was known to be popular among the troops.

Speaking on "Fox News Sunday," Vice President-elect Mike Pence said Mattis had "a legendary military career." Incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said it was a "very real possibility" Mattis would get the job, telling the ABC program "This Week:" "I know that President-elect Trump loves leaders like General Mattis."

Preşedintele Donald Trump nu le-a ordonat serviciilor de securitate din SUA să oprească atacurile cibernetice atribuite Rusiei, a declarat marţi Mike Rogers, directorul Agenţiei pentru Siguranţă Naţională (NSA) şi şeful Comandamentului cibernetic al Pentagonului, relatează site-ul Axios.com conform Mediafax.

Şefii serviciilor secrete americane au avertizat în mai multe rânduri că Rusia ar putea încerca să influenţeze rezultatul alegerilor parlamentare parţiale programate în noiembrie 2018, aşa cum s-a întâmplat în cursul scrutinului prezidenţial din 2016.

În acest context, Mike Rogers a declarat în cursul unei audieri în Congresul SUA că Donald Trump nu a ordonat măsuri pentru blocarea atacurilor informatice atribuite Rusiei.

„Ruşii nu au plătit un preţ suficient pentru a-şi schimba comportamentul”, a afirmat Mike Rogers.
