Obama makes unannounced visit to Afghanistan

President Barack Obama arrived in Afghanistan on Friday on a surprise visit.

The president is expected to address troops at Bagram Airfield.

A major U.S. military review of the war in Afghanistan is due this month, a year after Obama ordered additional U.S. troops to the country as part of a strategy that would see some forces coming home as soon as July 2011.

    Solve your own problems and stop looking to our president to clean out your closet. Do it yourself!

    I don't care what anyone says, but going to Afghanistan on December 2nd to celebrate Christmas is a bit early. President Obama wants to see his daughters open their presents on Christmas Day morning. I wish he were unselfish and not concerned with personal gain and less cowardly. He'd be a better president. Plus he has to get some balls and quit with the liberal garbage.
    Plus going to an airbase in Afghanistan, whoopteedah. That's risky? Bunch of panzy Air Force people in the safest American Area. Not even a battle zone.

    Oh and meeting Karzai. President Obama did not meet President Karzai because they didn't tell him Obama was coming to Afghanistan.
    Karzai is a security risk. He is working with the Taliban. He is in fact, our enemy.
