BREAKING-OBAMA IS IN AFGHANISTAN

Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- 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.

15. POTUS has just made it impossible for them to talk about anything else.

 

They've been harping on the OBL anniversary for a week already, people are sick of hearing about it, and the President has just ensured they can't jump off the merry-go-round.

This should also knock any coverage of the false-flag OWS infiltrators out of the top spot, so no win there for TPTB, either.

Jeebus, if the Administration can keep this up for another seven months.... Who can deal with that much Schadenfreude?
