WALB asked him what he thinks about the future of Afghanistan.On Tuesday, U.S. Major General Harold Greene was killed in an attack at a training facility for Afghan military officers by an Afghan soldier. Nunn says he worries about Afghanistan's economy.

"You've got to have viable economy if you're going to have a region that is peaceful over the long haul and that economy certainly was not very good when we got that there and I'm afraid that it's not going to be very good when we leave,” said Sam Nunn, Former U.S. Senator.
