Obama and Karzai to huddle on Afghanistan

Washington (CNN) - Years of tensions between Afghan President Hamid Karzai and the U.S. government appeared to fade away like a bad dream, at least in public, when Karzai touched down in Washington this week.

Karzai will get half a day's face time with President Barack Obama Friday, following meetings and cordial press appearances with U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Thursday.

    Obama, better focus on USA not Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, India, nor Pakistan–these are rogue nations with very volatile terrorists, nasty corruptive practices. Cut immigrations too to these nations. Period.

    Karzai is a corrupt puppet and he has to go. There is no governing Afghanistan. It's best we leave now!!!

    Another reason to be thankful for our President and Secretary of State.
    Afghanistan needs to come to grips with the fact that whether they are ready or not we're outta there. Time for them to figure out how they are going to cope with their own people and their own problems because our time is fast approaching. I think they were counting on the mistaken impression that we needed to stay there longer for own security reasons so they haven't really gotten themselves quite together to operate independent of our forces.
    The President said we're leaving and.....we're LEAVING, at long last.
