President Obama Makes Surprise Visit to Afghanistan

KABUL (AP) - President Barack Obama has told American forces
during his surprise visit to Afghanistan that U.S. lives would be
at risk if the Taliban retake control of the country.

Obama says difficult days lie ahead in the 8-year-old war and he
says there will be setbacks. But he says the U.S. doesn't quit and
will prevail.

The president spoke to about 2,500 U.S. forces at Bagram Air
Field after talks earlier Sunday in Kabul with Afghan leaders.

Obama told President Hamid Karzai and his Cabinet that they need
to make more progress in fighting corruption and improving their
government.
