STAY AWAY FROM THE MACDILL AREA TODAY!
If you are in Tampa or heading there today, and have business in the area of MacDill AFB, you may seriously want to reconsider your plans. Afghani President Hamid Karzai, between meetings with President Bush in the nation's capital, will visit with top brass of Central Command at MacDill today.
Needless to say, military officials are being tight-lipped about details, and security will be very tight. Expect roads near the base to be closed, and traffic in the area will obviously be affected. This is one day when any appointments or other stops in that area should be rescheduled.
