In Afghanistan, Obama talks post-2014 presence

U.S. President Barack Obama makes a surprise visit to Afghanistan, thanking troops for their service on what is Memorial Day Weekend in the United States.

I am going to have to make some decisions in conjunction with the folks on the ground about how we manage to transition not just through the end of this year but post 2014 and we will probably be announcing some decisions fairly shortly but I thought it was important for me to make sure that I checked in directly with folks face-to-face before those decisions were finally made." It's Obama's fourth visit to Afghanis
