Obama Arrives in Afghanistan
Obama arrived in Afghanistan early Saturday morning, according to the Illinois senator’s campaign. Prior to departing from Washington, DC, according to the pool report of one of the reporters accompanying him, Obama said he is “looking forward to seeing what the situation on the ground is.” He added that he wants to “talk to the commanders and get a sense, both in Afghanistan and in Baghdad of what their biggest concerns are. And I want to thank our troops for the heroic work that they’ve been doing.” This is Obama's first trip to Afghanistan.
