Obama makes unannounced visit to Afghanistan [View all]

Source: USA Today

President Obama has landed in Afghanistan, where he is expected to make remarks about U.S. plans to withdraw from the war that is now more than a decade old.

The visit, which was shrouded in secrecy, comes just a few weeks before G-8 and NATO summits at which the Afghanistan withdrawal will be a big topic,

It also comes a year after Obama announced the death of Osama bin Laden, following a U.S. military raid on the 9/11 architect's compound in neighboring Pakistan.

Obama is scheduled to meet with Afghanistan president Hamid Karzai, and sign a new U.S.-Afghanistan security agreement.
