The unannounced trip began around midnight and was expected to have the president back at the White House before dawn on Thursday.
...The White House kept Obama's plans off his schedule, informing a small group of traveling reporters in advance on condition of secrecy.
Obama was expected to observe a somber ceremony on the tarmac of the base without public comment.

“Two inherited conflicts...” How about “One inherited conflict that was won by Bush and is now winding down and one inherited conflict that has escalated while Obama dithers leading to more and more American G.I.s dying...”
Obama is no friend to the military. This was probably just a photo-op for him.
That would be a sight to see. Up to 25 flag draped coffins returning. http://www.icasualties.org/OEF/Nationality.aspx?hndQry=US
With this creep everything is PR and politics. A charade for the masses.
This move is designed to counterbalance 0bama’s unmanly dithering and cowardice on Afghanistan
And the media will lap it up.
And then Obama will announce that he won't give the military commanders on the ground what they are asking for.
Leading to more American casualties.
God Protect our troops from this idiot-in-chief.
An Air Force C-17 cargo plane was due to arrive at Dover after midnight carrying the bodies of 18 fallen personnel from Afghanistan, including the 10 Americans killed Monday and the eight soldiers the next day. Their remains were to be transferred to a waiting vehicle and then to an Air Force mortuary.
Attorney General Eric Holder, DEA Acting Administrator Michele Leonhart, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz and the Army Special Forces Commander Brig. Gen. Michael Repass were among those in the official party receiving the coffins.

Dover AFB is sacred ground here in Delaware.This is where we receive the battle dead and prepare them for transport to their families across the nation. The devotion and care these folks show is incredible to the remains of our fallen soldiers.
How dare he desecrate it with his unworthy presence.
This is just a photo-op to show him “struggling mightily’ with his “grave decisions” about sending our troops “into harm’s way”.
I am about to launch into projectile vomiting.
Thanks. The others must have arrived earlier.
Why do I not believe he will feel any emotions for the fallen heroes, only for himself and what it will mean for him?
Um. Sure. AP. Right. Like I believe the act or even the motive.
He goes to gloat over his handiwork. Evil, sniveling, lying, islamic b@st@rd!!@!!
Nothing but photo up
Obama should be hanging his head in shame.
It’s too late for this bastard to gain any friends in our
military. They see him for what he is.
His fakery is very
plain to the troops.
...including domestic losses (i.e., the Pentagon 9/11).
The devotion and care these folks show is incredible to the remains of our fallen soldiers.
Most definitely deserving of gratitude from all Americans.
