General Jim Mattis: I Won’t Repeal Women in Combat or Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Military Reforms | The Daily Beast

Gen. Jim Mattis, long a skeptic of putting women in combat roles, assured senators during his first day of confirmation hearings that he would not roll back Obama-era policies which some on the right have derided as “social experimentation.”

“The standards are the standards and when people meet the standards then that’s the end of the discussion on that,” the general said, telling the committee that if confirmed as Defense Secretary, he would not enter the office with an agenda to oppose women in combat.
