Gen. Keane warns US national honor is ‘on the line’ amid Afghanistan exit

Retired Gen. Jack Keane discusses evacuations underway in Afghanistan ahead of the August 31 deadline.

Retired Gen. Jack Keane discussed the United States’ reputation amid the Afghanistan exit during an appearance on “Fox & Friends Weekend” Sunday, arguing America’s national honor is “on the line” and the “whole world is watching.”
