Rice, UK foreign secretary make unannounced visit to Afghanistan

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and British Foreign Secretary David Miliband made an unannounced visit Thursday to Afghanistan, carrying a joint message of support as the US continued a drive to recruit more NATO troops. Rice and Miliband flew to the Afghan capital from London together. They were seeing Afghan President Hamid Karzai and other officials amid a welter of outside assessments that progress in the six-year war is stalling.
