Anbar province is one of the biggest successes in the U.S.-led war in Iraq: security is greatly improved and there's talk of the area being handed back to the Iraqis. The improvement has everything to do with a relationship with the people.

Maj. Gen. John Kelly, who will head to Iraq in February, discusses with Renee Montagne how the Marines were able to improve the security situation there.
