“We weren’t there to conquer Iraq, but we were, in our hearts, there to liberate these people from a very, very terrible time,” said Maj. Gen. John F. Kelly during his lecture. The deputy commanding general of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force spoke about establishing the rule the law in the Al Anbar province.

During his visit, Maj. Gen. Kelly met with Emory Law’s International Humanitarian Law Clinic and attended Professor Charles A. Shanor’s antiterrorism class.
