President Obama made an unannounced, at-one-point-denied visit to Afghanistan yesterday to sign a “strategic partnership” with the Afghan government to begin the drawdown of U.S. troops.On the anniversary of the death of Osama bin Laden’s death, President Obama told U.S. troops there was ” a light on the horizon because of the sacrifices you’ve made.”
The agreement is designed to send a message to the region that the U.S. is not abandoning the country even as it sharply reduces its footprint there, ABC’s Jake Tapper reported.
White House photographer Pete Souza was on hand to capture the visit along the way — and as usual his photos do not disappoint.
