Afghanistan is heading toward a failed state: Gen. Keane
Gen. Jack Keane (Ret.) warns of a possible civil war in Afghanistan after the Taliban took control of the government in late August.
Fox News senior strategic analyst General Jack Keane (Ret.) warned that Afghanistan is heading towards a civil war as the economy and institutions have rapidly declined since the Taliban took control. Keane said on "Mornings with Maria" Tuesday that the country's health care and banking systems have failed and noted that they're unable to pay bills to other countries without international support.

JACK KEANE: Afghanistan is an economic basket case, with a growing humanitarian crisis. I believe they're heading towards a failed state and, ultimately, a civil war in the country because the pressure that's going to be on the people will be so significant that their tribal leaders and warlords will have to do something to adjust the situation. The suffering of the people is going to be a mess.

The United States is holding $9 billion of Afghan money, and it's because a terrorist organization is now running the country. And that's the reality that we're facing there.
