OEC Outreach Clips: Trump Taps Legendary Retired Marine Gen. John Kelly to Lead DHS, Source Homeland Security Today

With his favorability numbers having increased significantly since winning the Presidency last month, President-Elect Donald Trump’s nomination today of retired USMC Gen. John Kelly – the longest serving Marine Gen. in history — to lead the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is being met with praise from throughout both the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community.  Kelly’s selection marks the third general Trump has tapped for a top White House position.  He’s made no bones about venting his exasperation with “bureaucrats” and that foreign military counterterrorism operations are against a “savage” enemy who, “Given the opportunity to do another 9/11, our vicious enemy would do it today, tomorrow and everyday thereafter,” Kelly said during a 2013 Memorial Day address in Texas.   Trump Taps Legendary Retired Marine Gen.
