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.

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

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.
