Reuters, AP, and Bloomberg are the only ones accompanying Obama?

Nothing like brining your own fluffers

Brad Paisley? I wonder why he didn’t take a hip hopper like Dawg Eat Dawg Drinking Ice T?

What idiot can’t see right through this?

This is so obviously to help defuse the VA fiasco, otherwise why do we know about it?

I can see our guys being told “ you WILL attend!! I know its BS but thats the order!!”

It’s an election year and Democrats have foisted Obamacare upon an unwilling population, so it’s off on the campaign trail in various forms..............

Karzai is still the President of Afghanistan. To not meet with him is incomprehensible.

He's looking for "leverage".

I also believe he is totally paranoid and can only talk to his generals after searching them for bugs and changing the original location of their encounter.

Does Obama have to come back? Can’t we just leave him there to be with his terrorist brothers?

“been too passive in dealing with crises from Syria to Ukraine and Russia. “

All this passivity is pandering to his base. With his domestic policy in tatters, he knows any significant miltary action would offend the code pinkers, and further erode his numbers.

Two years since he last visited there and I’ll bet a dollar to a donut he won’t be back during his remaining time as POTUS.

This visit is supposed to signal to all of us that this president really does love the military, and that this country is governed by a very patriotic administration. At some point, we may even see a picture of tears streaming down his face...

A “campaign” response to a pressing problem again ... and again ... and again.

During a visit scheduled to last just a few hours,

He should have time for a few holes of golf at the Bagram Golf course, though the need for armored golf carts might put him off.
