Obama arrives in Afghanistan for surprise meet with US troops

Published: 05.25.14, 19:31 / Israel News

AGRAM AIR FIELD - President Barack Obama secretly slipped into Afghanistan under the cover of darkness Sunday for a weekend visit with US troops serving in the closing months of America's longest war.

 

Air Force One landed at Bagram Air Field, the main US 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.
