Recommended Posts

Future Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis removed former Army Lt. Gen. and future National Security Advisor Mike Flynn from his intelligence role in Afghanistan, according to Army documents obtained by the Washington Post.

Mattis removed Flynn from his position in 2010 after Flynn was investigated by Central Command (CENTCOM) for sharing classified information with Pakistani officials. Mattis took over as head of CENTCOM in August of the same year, recalling Flynn to Washington, D.C., a month later. Flynn was given a temporary assignment as the special assistant to the chief of Army intelligence.

The U.S. military investigated Flynn a second time in 2010 after an anonymous Navy intelligence specialist claimed the general “inappropriately” shared secret information with “various foreign officers and/or officials in Afghanistan.”
