Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly got real candid during a public speech in which he described the international and domestic threats facing the United States. He also went on the offensive, going after politicians who have criticized the actions of DHS.
When it comes to understanding what it means to be an American, few people have a better grasp of the concept than retired Marine Gen. John F. Kelly, set to become the secretary of Homeland Security in the Trump Administration. Not only did Kelly spend more than 40 years of his life in uniform, serving in both Desert Storm and the initial invasion of Iraq alongside Gen. James F. Mattis, he’s a Gold Star father. In 2010, Kelly’s son, Robert, was killed in action as a Marine serving in Afghanistan.
