Obama's Surge

A U.S soldier of 101st Airborne Division holds a cardboard cutout named Flat Stanley, before leaving for a patrol at a military base in Bagram in north of Kabul, Afghanistan, Sunday, March 8, 2009. U.S President Barack Obama last month ordered 17,000 more troops to Afghanistan to bolster the record 38,000 American forces already in the country. Obama has promised to increase the U.S. focus on Afghanistan and away from Iraq, as the U.S. begins to draw down its forces there.
