Obama said he invited Karzai to Washington, and White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said the planned date for that visit is May 12.

    President Obama has always cautiously watched where Karzai stands. This is something that I had always wanted to know but Bush never put Karzai to task.

    Karzai would love a nice long vacation in the US.

    Mr. Obama has lost the American people. So he has to leave the country to use the military, who by law must support him. as a backdrop of support. Many voted for him but he has stupaked them.
