For more on the -- protest the president's trip to Afghanistan.
I'm joined now by Fox News political analyst Juan Williams one first of all.
The president of the surprise visit.
He had been there for almost a year and a half is the timing curious you at all.
Of course -- here -- -- What do you mean it's unseemly -- -- as having the risk here is that the president comes across that's playing pure politics Lou.
The campaign is officially going to kick off Saturday.
But I don't think there's any question we are in campaign season.
And while the president has every reason to crow about the success of that mission to get bin Laden.
It does look as I say unseemly a little tawdry that.
He would use this anniversary.
For purely political purpose.
I understand that Republicans typically have the advantage when it comes to national security national defense but at the moment the president does and he's making sure he's gonna hold -- going forward.
He is there -- Is -- a significant chance that he is overplaying.
His hand to a considerable degree.
The one year anniversary of the U -- US navy seal -- skill and some of them -- Having not made a trip in almost a year and a half -- -- -- state to do so.
Thirdly a ten -- strategic partnership which is a partnership with a man.
As we just heard congressman Dana roar -- of ahead of the house.
Well foreign affairs oversight committee say is a corrupt and -- human being that should be -- anything level on the government of our.
-- -- Well -- -- -- what what the congressman's that is true but it's also true with Senator McCain said today.
That the pressure has come from the right person for President Obama does have some -- agreement.
We have Karzai that would allow for an extended US commitment allow the US to have input in what is to -- after 2014.
We don't want to give anybody the impression that we are gone for all time.
Once we -- that withdrawal date and so I think for a lot of people there was reason.
To say that's a good move Mr.
President but they've been putting that pressure on -- -- you mentioned for more than a year and he hasn't gone.
For more than a year and he hasn't seal this deal.
For more than a year so people want him to pay attention.
-- what we'll hear from the president tonight in these remarks.
It feels they look you know we took 101000 out last summer we've got 23000.
Or more coming out more out in terms of what happened in Iraq.
And so now at the time to rebuild America and all that threat.
I think Americans want him.
To be more clear in terms of his vision about -- short certain that we have taken care of the problems that caused the terrorist attacks on 9/11.
And meanwhile a group of folks were -- my he has at least.
Ever so gently and tangentially aligned.
And this administration and that is the Occupy Wall Street crowd.
Their demonstrations to no -- today after a great ballyhoo and the national media.
-- you're valuation.
Well you know look I don't know what their goal was -- their goal Weston gridlock big -- -- cause people who work in big companies to flee the buildings.
It didn't happen it didn't have that effect and it it looked almost comical look points.
But if there effect is that they have entered the political dialogue I'll give them that I think they're gonna have a large presence at the conventions this summer.
I think that they have with there -- 99%.
-- much of the conversation I think they have.
Driven the Obama campaign in the direction -- more of more populism and a tax on big companies I have a question.
Well we'll take that -- and Wong who rejoins us right after the president's speech.
From Afghanistan want.
