He was investigated for possible favoritism towards Boeing and then cleared. I wouldn't even be against that because fuck Airbus lol.

But yeah, putting a civilian without a military background in charge of the DoD is a bit silly.

Huge corrupt conflict of interest, its just like the Monsanto and drug ceos becoming head of fda. No doubt his first call of business is that we're gonna need some freedom missiles for Venezuela and Iran. Which he'll explain the good guys at Boeing will be generous to make for a few grand each and pass on to the government for a few million each in tax payer dollars.

Since the establishment of the position after WWII, there have been 29 people to hold the office.
5 have had any military background at all, only two held positions at or above staff officer.
