Posted on 05/01/2012 12:11:45 PM PDT by tcrlaf
President Barack Obama made a previously unannounced visit to Afghanistan on Tuesday, the first anniversary of the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden in neighboring Pakistan.
The president will make a televised address from Afghanistan at 7:30 p.m. ET.
The trip was Obama's third to Afghanistan since taking office. He visited in March 2010 and returned in December of the same year. He also visited Afghanistan in 2008 as a presidential candidate.
Tuesday's visit came at a particularly delicate time in relations between the United States and Afghanistan. The countries have been negotiating a strategic agreement that would outline the basis for U.S.-Afghan cooperation after most U.S. and allied troops withdraw in 2014.

WHY MICHELLE CAME HOME-— Interesting!
Sheppard Smith, Fox News.
“If you check President Obama’s last trip over-seas, his wife left just after their visit to France. She has yet to accompany him to any Arab country.
Think about it. Why is Michelle returning to the states when ‘official’ trips to foreign countries generally include the First Lady.” Here’s one thought on the matter.
While in a Blockbuster renting videos I came across a video called “Obama”. There were two men standing next to me and we talked about President Obama. These guys were Arabs, so I asked them why they thought Michelle Obama headed home following the President’s recent visit to France instead of traveling on to Saudi Arabia and Turkey with her husband. They told me she could not go to Saudi Arabia, Turkey or Iraq.
I said “Why not, (?) Laura Bush went to Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Dubai.”
They said that Obama is a Muslim and therefore he is not allowed to bring his wife into countries that adhere to Sharia Law.
Two points of interest here:
1) I thought it interesting that two American Arabs at Blockbuster believe that our President is a Muslim, who follows a strict Islamic creed.
2) They also said that’s the reason he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia. It was a signal to the Muslim world, acknowledging his religion.
For further consideration, here is a response from Dr. Jim Murk, a Middle Eastern Scholar and expert on Islam. This is his explanation of what the Arab American’s were saying.
“An orthodox Muslim man would never take his wife on a politically oriented trip to any nation which practices Sharia law, particularly Saudi Arabia where the Wahhabi sect is dominant. This is true and it is why Obama left Michelle in Europe. She will stay home when he visits Arab countries. He knows Muslim protocol; this includes, bowing to the Saudi King. Obama is regarded as a Muslim in the Arab world, because he was born to a Muslim father; he acknowledged his Muslim faith with George Stephanopoulos. Note that he downplays his involvement with Christianity, by not publicly joining a Christian church in D.C. And occasionally attending the chapel for services at Camp David. He also played down the fact that America is a Christian country and said, unbelievably, that it was one of the largest Muslim nations in the world, which is nonsense. He has publicly taken the side of the Palestinians in the conflict with Israel and he ignored the National Day of Prayer, something no other President has ever done. He is bad news! He conceals his true faith to the detriment of the American people.”
-— Jim Murk, Doctor of Philosophy in Middle Eastern Culture & Religion.
ACTIONS speak louder than words. Another interesting item regarding Sharia Law; why has Barack Hussein Obama insisted that the U.S. Attorney General hold the trials of the 911 Muslim Terrorists in Civilian Courts as Common Criminals instead of as Terrorists who attacked the United States of America? If the Muslim Terrorists are tried in Military Tribunals, convicted and sentenced to death, by LAW, Barack Hussein Obama, as President of the United States, would be required to sign their death warrants. He would not be required to sign the death warrants if they are sentenced to death by a Civilian Court. Recently, Muslim Jihadist, Army Major Hassan slaughtered non-Muslim, soldiers at Ft. Hood, Texas rather than go to Afghanistan and be a part of anything that could lead to the deaths of fellow Muslims. He stated that Muslims ‘could not and should not kill fellow Muslims.’ Is the motive for Barack Hussein Obama’s insistence on civilian trials, to make sure he doesn’t have to sign the death warrants for the Muslim Terrorists? Why would he, as President of the United States, not sign the death warrants for Muslim Terrorists who attacked the United States and murdered over 3,000 U. S. Citizens on 9/11? Could it be that he is FORBIDDEN by his RELIGION to authorize the execution of Muslims?
Think about that! Open your eyes, ears and mind to who the President is, how he behaves and what he is doing! Actions speak louder than teleprompter-written words.
[ Obama Lands in Afghanistan In Surprise Visit ]
A comedy visit.. for more standup?..
An Afgani a murderous Paki and an Indian rapist walk into a bar an........
(well you know)...
Oh, he's not "spiking the football" or anything coarse like that awful, déclassé Texan George Bush would've done. He's just taking credit for what brave Americans risked their lives to do, while using his endless 24/7/265 political operation to suggest that his likely opponent wouldn't have done the same thing.
Can't say it any other way: Obama is a piece of shit.
As he and hillary talk with the Taliban. Can I hate these people anymore? Probably so.
The funny thing is that this is all he has going for his re-election. He killed bin-Laden according to his ego and rhetoric, but even some MSM is getting wise and more people will know that the operation was already in place before he was pulled off the golf course to observe. Wish I still knew some SEAL's.
Any bets he declares the end of the War on Terra, and says all troops will be withdrawn by election day???
And he’s going to give a speech there at 4 AM local time—for it to be broadcast live in the US. Bwahahahaha!
Obama will be using foreign policy as part of his campaign strategy. He will have himself seen abroad acting as President and CIC. He will be seen as a world leader compared to his challengers who can only talk about foreign policy and are not actors on the world scene. Obama will be travelling a lot prior to the Dem convention. Lots of photo ops and sound bites for his campaign commercials.
Why, you must be a RASSISS! for noting these contradictions in the Democrat-Party/Gay Media approved Current Truth!
OBAMA IS MESSIAH! PRAISE HEEM!!!
A POTUS campaigning at 4 am while we have historic unemployment and unprecedented trillion dollar deficits. What a buffoon no budget barry is.
I’m sure his televised address will be to remind us that “he made the tough call to get OBL” and “who knows if Mitt Romney could”.
Nothing like using the troops...
I’m sure they’re beyond thrilled to see him./s
That is an eyeopener....proof positive that he still believes....
Behind the scenes, the actual photo that was on all the screens.
The Obama Killah Team landing in Abbad-booty-bad compound in Pocky-stahn.
Seen that photo dozens of times but never noticed how pissed Bambi and Biden look. Also, look around the room where the grown-ups are and compare that to Hillar’s “oh sh*t” look.
I’m sure he’ll cammie up and lead a strike team for the new ORambo video.
Barack Hussein Obama, the worst form of anti-American humanity on the face of the earth!!! Who does he think he is kidding!!! Obama, the supreme flim/flam man and grifter at work. America, Americans, you should be ashamed of yourselves, elevating this would be America destroyer to the highest office in the land. “ABO”!!!
Should he be reelected, I think the border crossings will be reversed. People will be stampeding away from here looking for good health care in Panama and Costa Rica.
in the picture of Obama getting off the plane ,looks like he’s wearing a neck to ground bullet proof ,ah, gaberdine
