News video: Who Is Trump's Pick For Defense Secretary?President-elect Donald Trump has selected retired Marine General James "Mad Dog" Mattis as his secretary of defense. Mattis is "yet another outspoken ex-military leader who butted heads with the Obama administration to shape and carry out his national security strategy." The nomination is unusual -- Mattis would be only the second retired general to become the civilian leader of the U.S. military. His nomination would even require a special waiver from Congress.
