On Friday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis instructed top commanders to speak to the media more freely, Defense One has learned. ... Mattis, along with most of the military's top leaders, has been asking Congress to pass a regular spending bill instead of another continuing resolution, which locks the military's budget at previous year's levels and prevents spending on things like new weapons systems and training. Military leaders say a CR would harm the military's ability to be ready to fight future conflicts.

"I want the Congress back in the driver's seat of budget decisions, not in the spectator's seat of automatic cuts," Mattis said Monday, speaking at the annual Association of the United States Army convention in Washington.

It's very difficult for Mattis to prepare for their financial future when they know their C-in-C could start howling at the moon any day now.
