U.S. presidents arent the only ones who make surprise visits to troops in Afghanistan. 'The Fighter' Mark Wahlberg made his own trek to the war-torn country in December, but with little media attention that typically follows dignitaries and Hollywood stars.

A campaign of defamation against U.S. President Barack Obama was launched by far-right Israeli activists Thursday, in anticipation of the president’s outreach to the Muslim world in his speech in Cairo.
A poster circulated by one group showed a montage of Obama in Arab headdress along with the slogan “Barack Hussein Obama; Anti-Semitic Jew Hater.” An identical montage with Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in Arab headdress had been carried by demonstrators shortly before his assassination by a right-wing Israeli extremist in 1995.
In a demonstration by 100 demonstrators in front of the American consulate in Jerusalem Wednesday, a less provocative placard was flaunted – “Barack Hussein Obama: No You Can’t”, a play on his election campaign slogan, “Yes We Can”. The placard referred to his call for a freeze in Israeli settlement activity.A campaign of defamation against U.S. President Barack Obama was launched by far-right... more
Barack Obama has used his first 100 days in office to set a foundation for the rest of his presidency. Time will be the judge of how successful his early months have been in resolving major U.S. challenges.
Obama, whose move into the White House came with high expectations, has given hope to Americans that better days lie ahead, showing himself in command of the issues and displaying an easy-going maturity that many might not have expected from the 47-year-old.
His supporters are ecstatic about him.
"I think what's happened with President Obama is, as in the elections, a lot of people underestimate ... the man who I believe is a great leader," Democratic Representative Elijah Cummings told MSNBC.
At the same time, Obama has been unable to bridge the partisan divide that often consumes Washington.
When tough decisions have been made, time and again he has sided with fellow Democrats who control Congress, leading opposition Republicans to believe his view of bipartisanship is when they align themselves with his views.
"We believe over the last three months we've offered a lot of better solutions than what has been proposed by the administration," said John Boehner, the top Republican in the House of Representatives. "Unfortunately, they've decided to go it alone, on a partisan basis, over these last three months."
In a whirlwind of activity, Obama has devoted the period since his historic inauguration on January 20 as the first black U.S. president to trying to resuscitate the economy and fix the financial crisis at the heart of the global downturn.Barack Obama has used his first 100 days in office to set a foundation for the rest of... more

Will you teach your children what we have taught our children? That the Earth is our Mother? What befalls the Earth befalls all of the Sons of Earth.
This we know: the Earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the Earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. What ever he does to the web he does to himself.
Chief Seattle in a letter to
President Franklin Pierce
