Obama Visits Afghanistan a Year After bin Laden's Death

The president arrived unannounced in Afghanistan a year after the killing of Osama bin Laden by U.S. forces in a raid he ordered on the al Qaeda leader's compound in Pakistan.

The trip is the White House's latest effort to commemorate what the president's advisers see as his crowning national security achievement. It wasn't publicly announced for security reasons and comes at a time of fresh scrutiny of the decade-long war in Afghanistan following a series of incidents this year that have strained relations between the U.S. and the Afghan government led by President Hamid Karzai.
