Sunday: Senator Obama Has Lunch With Afghan President Karzai

  Senator Barack Obama met Sunday with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, a man Obama has taken to task for not doing enough to rebuild his war-torn country.

Obama and Karzai held talks and lunched together at the presidential palace in Kabul. Karzai’s office released video showing the two men seated in front of a marble fireplace, chatting and smiling. They made no public comment.

Earlier Sunday, Obama had breakfast with soldiers at Camp Eggers, a heavily fortified military base in the city.

“To see young people like this who are doing such excellent work, with so much dedication … it makes you feel good about the country,” Obama said.

“I want to make sure that everybody back home understands how much pride these young people take in their work here and how much sacrifice they are making. It is outstanding,” he said.

Details of the meeting will be released later.
