President Obama landed in Kabul, Afghanistan today for a surprise trip to sign a strategic partnership agreement with Afghanistan. The agreement, completed after months of negotiations, will pledge American aid to Afghanistan for 10 years after the withdrawal of U.S. forces and marks a symbolic beginning of the end for the U.S.’s war in Afghanistan. Obama met with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and will make a live televised address at 7:30 PM ET.
