Rep. Duncan Hunter has had enough of Navy Secretary Ray Mabus’ strong support for opening all Marine combat posts to women, declaring him “a greater threat to the Marine Corps than ISIS.”

The Republican congressman and Marine veteran from California, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, is furious with Mabus for pushing through an end to the ban on women serving in all combat positions over the Marine Corps’ objections. Particularly, he’s taking exception to memo Mabus sent to the Marines Corps this week, instructing it integrate Marine boot camp, which has been separate for men and women, and change job titles so they’re gender neutral.
