    Now that the health care bill nightmare is over, Obama can concentrate on foreign policy issues with peace.

    Obama vows to deny al-Qaeda safe haven in Afghan-Pak

    US President Barack Obama, who made a surprise visit to Kabul and met President Hamid Karzai, has vowed to deny al-Qaeda safe haven and reverse Taliban's momentum in Afghanistan.

    "We are going to disrupt and dismantle, defeat and destroy al-Qaeda and its extremist allies. That is our mission. And to accomplish that goal, our objectives here in Afghanistan are also clear: We're going to deny al-Qaeda safe haven. We're going to reverse the Taliban's momentum," Obama said in his address to US soldiers at the Bagram airfield.

    The US President last night reiterated his country's support to strengthen the capacity of Afghan forces and the Afghan government so that they could take responsibility and gain confidence of their own people.

    Al-Qaeda and their extremist allies were not only a threat to the people of Afghanistan and America, but also a threat to the people all around the world, he said.
