Declaring war on Powerpoint?
We've all heard how Trump's pick for Defense Secretary, General Jim Mattis, is a critic of waterboarding, but it seems he also has it in for another form of torture popular in the US armed forces, Powerpoint.
The New York Times quoted him in 2010 as saying that "PowerPoint makes us stupid." - they also quoted a platoon leader in Iraq saying he spent most of his day making Powerpoint presentations.
In the end I know very little about Mattis. He has two nicknames, the press prefers "Mad Dog", he prefers "The Warrior Monk" - I think I agree with him there. He says waterboarding is less effective than non-torture methods of interrogation, I can get behind that. He says Powerpoint needs to die.
I guess that as a sane man they'll block his appointment, right?
