Fox News senior strategic analyst Gen. Jack Keane said Saturday that it’s impossible to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and not find it “disturbing” that the Taliban is back in control of Afghanistan.

“The Taliban are in charge of Afghanistan, al-Qaida has a safe haven again,” Keane told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”

“ISIS will have an opportunity to grow and other foreign terrorists will have an opportunity to come to Afghanistan,” Keane continued. “So the future is uncertain as a result of what took place in Afghanistan. It looms heavy over us today and it’s uncomfortable, I think, for many who served and fought in that war to see the Taliban now in charge and it is disturbing.”
