Why Obama Used the Cover of Night for His Flying Visit?

Why Obama Used the Cover of Night for His Flying Visit?
obama-karzyBy making a 6-hour unannounced trip to Afghanistan last night, Obama proved that his military strategy and surge of 30,000 troops, his morale-boosting propaganda, all have failed to make a dent. The Mujahideen have further driven the enemy into the corner, to the extent that  now he is  not able to visit Afghanistan in the light of the day. He comes during the night and hurries back in the darkness, ironically acting like a thief.

Similarly, the brief speech of Obama to American soldiers in a military base, being dotted with his low- pitched and jittery-fraught voice was demonstrating the scope of  the American military’s fear and  mistrust in Afghanistan. There was no word in Obama’s speech, indicating  any military achievement or at least giving  good news to  troops  to boost their morale.  Obama admitted in clear terms that their enemy (Taliban) were a determined and resolute opponent. However, he claimed that  they would not  defeat the Americans.
Obama’s admission that  the Taliban are a determined force, in fact,  exposes  the invading Americans acknowledgement of the fact  that  the Taliban are waging an unflinching struggle with unwavering determination. During the past nine years, the invaders have not been able to force Taliban to retreat from  any given small area a or a village of any mention  despite the invading American resorting to committing brutalities and using all military power at their disposal.
If they had any spectacular achievement or any tangible results, particularly,  in the recent operations of Marjah, he would have refereed to them  in his speech, to put them on display   in front of his audience.  On the other hand, Obama’s visit to Afghanistan in the darkness of evening and even  not informing  Hamid Karzai, the Head of the Kabul administration until  he was in a helicopter  on his way to the Afghan presidential palace  for a  25-minutes long meeting with the surrogate, shows how arrogantly  the Americans behave with their henchmen.  The surrogates may obediently betray their religion, honor and conscience but still they would not obtain  pleasure  of their masters– who are not  ready  to  consider them an entity of any stature to reckon with.
