President Obama has made an unannounced visit to Afghanistan this Memorial Day weekend, arriving under the cover of darkness Sunday night to visit U.S. troops serving in the final months of their country’s longest war.
The president landed at Bagram Air Field, in Afghanistan, at about 8:30 p.m. local time, or 11: 46 a.m. Eastern time.
He is scheduled to spend a few hours at the base and delivery some remarks following a performance by country music star Brad Paisley.
This was Obama’s fourth visit to Afghanistan as president but his first since winning re-election in 2012.
Also making the trip with Obama on Air Force One is National Security Adviser Susan Rice, senior White House adviser John Podesta, whose son is serving in Afghanistan, advisers Dan Pfeiffer and Ben Rhodes.
