The Belgium attacks resulted from an "intelligence failure" — and such a breakdown has created a "safe heaven" for terrorists in the country, former CIA officer Fred Fleitz told Newsmax TV on Tuesday.

"We need to find out what Belgium authorities knew, how the terrorists were hiding their tracks," Fleitz, a member of Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz's national security team, told host J.D. Hayworth on "America Votes: 2016" in an interview.

"We know that Belgium security and intelligence is woefully inept," he added. "Belgium is basically a divided state because of the linguistic battle between the French and the Dutch speakers.

"It's provided an opportunity for Islamists to carve out a safe haven in the heart of Europe.

"This is another example that radical Islam is at war with western civilization — and we really need to double down to fight this threat."
