Lieboy-Secret Surprise Stop in Afghanistan

Bush couldn't risk anyone knowing he was making a surprise Afghanistan stop since there might have been a few protests there too. Secretive bastard.
But more than four years after U.S. troops toppled the Taliban, al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and Taliban chief Mullah Mohammad Omar remain at large. "It's not a matter of if they are captured and brought to justice, it's when they are brought to justice," Bush told a joint news conference with Karzai after the two leaders met.
...
Bush's Air Force One flew to Bagram air base, headquarters of the U.S. presence in Afghanistan, from where helicopters ferried him and his entourage across the dusty plain over mud brick homes to the capital, Kabul.

He flew later to India, the world's largest democracy where anti-Bush protests by Muslims and communists were flaring, with hopes of elevating a new friendship between the two nations into a strategic partnership.

During his visit to Afghanistan, Bush held talks with President Hamid Karzai and his U.S.-backed government that took power after the Taliban regime was overthrown for refusing to hand over al Qaeda leaders following the September 11 attacks.

"It's in our nation's interest that Afghanistan develop into a democracy. It is in the interests of the United States of America for there to be examples around the world of what is possible," he said at the U.S. embassy in Kabul.

His first EVER visit to Afghanistan. Carpet of gold or carpet of bombs.
