    What a shame for this surprise visit as he knew Afghans never like him on their soil as President of occupation forces. He was never received by an Afghan when he stepped on Afghan soil. This all expose the so called greatness of Americans that how they subjugate poor nations in the name of human rights and democracy. This is open cheating of American nation where such humiliating steps are being projected as greatest achievement making them qualified for public votes in forthcoming election. In public opinion surveys Americans as a nation 70% have voted against the occupation of Afghanistan which CIA chief Paneta termed less important publicly. So contradictions are quite clear which has badly damaged Americans image as a great and respectable nation. This millinium has totally different message and under UN charter and American declaration of independence every state including Americans as emerging super power have condemned wars and committed to save succeeding generations from the scourge of wars. Afghan soil has never been conquered by invasions however respect and friendly gestures can conquer their hearts. So Mr President the best way is to conquer their hearts then you will come on declared visit, in broad daylight with Afghans greeting you when you stepping on their soil. This way whole world will solute American nation as their President will never land like a thief in the darkness of the night, due to fear of security threat on Afghan soil.

    Methinks, that the politicization of the one year anniversary of Osama Bin Laden's killing and matters surrounding the subject matter this week makes it look like the United States Government is spearheading the sacrelization of the terror leader's death. This day should have passed with a deep sober reflection given that this was one man that caused the death of over 3000 deaths within minites on 9/11/2001
