KABUL, AFGHANISTAN -FEBRUARY 13: Afghans walk across a snowy street as a snowstorm hits Kabul for a second straight day closing the airport February 13, 2009 in Kabul Afghanistan. The storm hasn’t delayed the visit of the new U.S regional envoy Richard Holbrooke who landed yesterday to help push President Obama’s strategy a day after a bold Taliban assault on the Jusitce ministry and the prisons department on Wednesday. Afghanistan has frequently accused extremists based in Pakistan’s tribal areas or Pakistan’s spy service of being behind several major attacks in Kabul. The latest attack is a reminder of challenges facing Obama as he increases troop levels promising up to 30,000 more troops.
