Depends on what JBD meant by Mandarin being the "mouthpiece," with Killian as the "brains." Generally speaking, a "mouthpiece" is the guy who *looks* like your adversary, when it's actually the "brains" behind the outfit who's pulling the strings.

In other words, from Dale's comment, it sounds like Killian is pulling the strings on Mandarin, not vice versa.
