WHAT A STUNT! WHAT A JOKE! AMAZING!...AMAZING!...FOREIGN-BORN, INDONESIAN WITH PHONY NAME AND FRAUDULENT ID DOCUMENTS WHO HAS DONE MORE TO DESTROY AMERICA'S MILITARY (BTW MORE DEATHS IN AFGHANISTAN UNDER OBAMA THAN BUSH...BUT WHOSE REPORTING THAT?) PEACE AND SECURITY THAN ANY PRESIDENT IN OUR HISTORY
BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan (AP) — President Barack Obama, on a surprise holiday visit to this sprawling military base, said Sunday he was close to a decision about the number of U.S. troops who will remain after year's end in America's longest war.
"We are aware of the sacrifices so many have made," Obama said after a briefing by Marine Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, the top American commander in Afghanistan. "We'll probably be announcing some decisions fairly shortly."
The decision may come Wednesday when Obama delivers the commencement address at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York.
Air Force One landed at Bagram Air Field, the main U.S. base in Afghanistan, after an overnight flight from Washington. Obama was scheduled to spend just a few hours on the base and had no plans to travel to Kabul, the capital, to meet with Hamid Karzai, the mercurial president who has had a tumultuous relationship with the White House.
Obama's surprise trip came as the U.S. and NATO withdraw most of their forces ahead of a year-end deadline.
