    Pope Benedict XVI has touched down at Andrews Air Force Base to start a six-day, two-city journey that will take him from the White House to the halls of the United Nations. Security precautions have been taken in the air, on land and in the water for the visit.

    Kwanini amepokewa kijeshi wakati yeye ni kiongozi wa Kanisa? Nakumbuka alifanyiwa hivyo hata alipoenda Uturuki. Hata Pope JPII alipoenda Morocco alipokewa hivyo kijeshi...

    Nilidhani ni kiongozi wa nchi pia...
    Hata hivyo swala la mapokezi ni la nchi anayotembelea...na watakavyoamua ndio watakavyofanya.....

    I think Bush borrowed a leaf from his visits to African countries. A first for the US president to ever go and receive a foreign dignitary.

    Pope ni kiongozi wa kanisa na Nchi ya vatican.
    So jeshi ni haki yake kama kiongozi wa nchi

    Yeah at somepoint he is trying to learn from the best,He learn from Tanzania,as you can remember every leader was there,politicial,non political,religious walijaa pale..

    mapolisi wote walijaa pale,makatibu wa wizara wote,nusu ya mawaziri walilkuwapo siku bush anakuja.

    ila nadhani sababu ni kwamba Busha ni Mkatoliki,na hii ni kama heshima kwake.

    Pope Benedict XVI's scheduled meeting with President George W. Bush Wednesday will be the 25th meeting between a pope and a sitting U.S. president. *(AP Photo/Pier Paolo Cito)

    Pope Benedict XVI flew into Andrews Air Force Base, near Washington, as he began his first visit to the US as pontiff.

    His aircraft was adorned with US and Vatican flags for the occasion.

    In an unprecedented move, President George W Bush was there in person to meet the head of the Catholic Church.

    There were, of course, traditional kisses of the Pope's Fisherman's Ring from clerics.

    A flash of colour... one of the Pope's distinctive red shoes is glimpsed as he enters his limousine to leave the air base.

    The pontiff's trip will see visits to the United Nations and Ground Zero in New York.

    The media in UK are fuming because Brown was relegated to ............

    I thought President Clinton did, in Denver at the start of World Youth Day.

    Bush has never before given a visiting leader the honor of picking him up at the airport. In fact, no president has done so at Andrews Air Force Base, the typical landing spot for modern leaders.


    I guess there's a first time for everything....

    Lakini funny enough last friday Bush kwenye interview na EWTN alisema...

    The president explained the special treatment — particularly the airport greeting.

    "One, he speaks for millions. Two, he doesn't come as a politician; he comes as a man of faith," Bush told the EWTN Global Catholic Network in an interview aired Friday. He added that he wanted to honor Benedict's conviction that "there's right and wrong in life, that moral relativism has a danger of undermining the capacity to have more hopeful and free societies."
