Leon Panetta visits Afghanistan

January 1, 1970

U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta is scheduled to meet with President Karzai during his two-day visit to Afghanistan. The trip comes as the Taliban has vowed revenge following this past weekend's killing spree by a U.S. soldier who is accused of killing 16 civilians in Afghanistan. Most of those killed were children and women.
