I'm guessing that at the Nowruz party, the half-crazy Afghan President had a love note given to him from Iminthemoodfor Abigwhompinjihad written to our Dictator In Training Pants and it was an eyes-only kind of thing. *
Colonel, fire up the jet, we goin' to The 'Stan. I gotta see a man about a horse.
Warning: Link is to a fairly well-written, but nonetheless puff piece filed by Associated Press reporter Jennifer Loven......... Yeah, at least she said in the first sentence that he escalated the war.
US President Barack Obama has made a surprise visit to Afghanistan for a firsthand look at the eight-year-old war he inherited and dramatically escalated.
One topic expected to come up was Karzai's plan for a three-day peace "jirga", or conference, in late April or early May. Looking a way to end the war, Karzai has invited Taliban participation.

So, do I snark it ?
What about saying, as I did up top....... Hey, at least he went there....... once........ for a few hours....... to send the message that 'here's another way you typical bitter god-clinging gun-owing tea-baggers can stick it.'
Maybe he simply had to get out of the house - being driven nuts by the proverbial "you don't take me anywhere !"
Could it be that he was called to show up in person for new ord.............. Oh, can't talk like that....... Sorry.
Whatever it was, I'm glad that The President Of The United States had 'the real deal' security along for the ride and went in about as much in the dark as possible. The man might be an enigma to many (that's a way outside best-case scenario, by the way - I'm just being nice here), but he is The President Of The United States - still considered to be the world's ultimate bull's-eye. If word got out he was gonna be in-country, every single pissant peace-loving punk with a vest, belt or half-shot-to-hell vehicle would have tried to 'meet him and say hi'.
* If you don't know....... A gotta-be-hip-to-be-there party was thrown in Iran for Mowruz - The Persian New Year....... Iranian President Imadinnerjacket's guests of honor were Afghan President Karzai and Pakistan's President Talabani......... Here's the write-up: http://www.redstate.com/etcartman/2010/03/27/they-had-a-party-and-obama-wasnt-there
Never again means NEVER AGAIN !
