From Yahoo News: Bagram (Afghanistan) (AFP) - Afghan President Hamid Karzai was offered a meeting with President Barack Obama at Bagram Air Base outside Kabul but declined, a US official said Sunday. The official said that Washington was not surprised that the meeting did not work out at short notice, after Obama arrived at the base on a surprise visit after night fell on Sunday. "As we said, we weren't planning for a bilateral meeting with President Karzai or a trip to the palace, as this trip is focused on thanking our troops," the official said. "We did offer him the opportunity to come to Bagram, but we're not surprised that it didn't work on short notice.

I was gonna say .... but I’ll rip off part of your reply ...

Evan an arrogant, dirty tribesman hooked on smack has a standard to which he will not sink.

No, I don’t care for either of them .... either.

Karsai can use last years excuse: “Please tell Mr. Obama I cannot possibly meet with him today, just like last year and the one before that, I am still washing my hair, I most humbly apologize for the scheduling conflict.

Karzai knows he will have trouble after we leave and he cannot appear to close the US.

You can rent an Afghan but you cant buy one.

He knew 0bama was there to collect his kickback on the billions that Karzai has stolen from the U.S. Taxpayers.

Just ducking the bill collector.

I want to go on record as having refused to meet Obama at my home, or my place of work, or my place of worship, or my dry cleaners, or my barber shop. The man is simply gonna have to do without.

The fighting men and women were forced to meet with the Prompter Reader. Otherwise, I’m sure many of them would also pass on being a photo-op for the disaster.

I always like Karzai.

Karzai is a corrupt piece of sh*t. He and Obama are birds of a feather. If they got into a knife fight, I would hope a mortar round would land right between them.

Karzai is competing with Putin on snubbing the boy king. I always like Karzai.

It is a MAJOR dis, of which I have to approve and laugh about. As to Karzai, I probably don't know enough to have an opinion, because my raw information is based on filtered news, but he seems to me to be a self-serving corrupt ungrateful a-hole. But, maybe my info is bad.

Karzai was probably busy rearranging his sock drawer in anticipation of packing up and fleeing on short notice when the US troops are gone.

Karzai is a snappy dresser. Okay, he is corrupt and supplies the world with opium...but who cares about the details.

If he disses Obama, he still comes out on top.

Major dis big time.
Look for more of this from other countries.
Karzi may have been the trendsetter on this.
