President and Laura Bush made a surprise stop in a free Afghanistan today on their 4 day Asian trip where Bush is planning on visiting India and Pakistan.
Outside the Beltway has a nice roundup of the trip to Afghanistan including more pictures of the president.
Lorie Byrd likes it when “W” does stuff like this. There’s not too many people around who can say that they helped free 25 million poeople from the Taliban. It probably makes the stop over even more worthwhile. It was nice that Laura could join him.
