Retired Gen. Keane: ‘We Have to Defend Baghdad’
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered the U.S.S. George H.W. Bush to be moved from the Arabian Sea into the Persian Gulf as the situation in Iraq escalates.
Retired Gen. Jack Keane was on “Sunday Morning Futures” to discuss the United States’ military options in Iraq.
“We have to defend Baghdad,” Keane said, stressing that we can’t let the central government be forced out.
Keane said we should use intelligence and air power to help defend Baghdad and that it was a mistake not to keep troops there.
