The speaker of the US House met with Afghani President Hamid Karzai in Kabul on Saturday where the two likely talked about the incoming surge of US forces. Nancy Pelosi arrived in Afghanistan on Friday to meet with Afghan officials and US and NATO military leaders, said Capt. Elizabeth Mathias, a US military spokeswoman. Pelosi, a California Democrat, also met with US troops during her two-day visit. President Barack Obama announced this last week a surge of 17,000 additional forces to bolster the record 38,000 US troops already in the country.
