Remember when President Bush and Vice-President Cheney were constantly being portrayed by the left as blood-thirsty war criminals? Remember when the media was counting off U.S. military deaths during the Iraq and Afghan wars as some sort of celebratory testament as to how terrible Bush and Cheney were?
So I ask you, why is the man who has conducted military operations in four countries – two of which he conducted without congressional authorization (Libya and Central Africa) – and a man who has now been Commander-in-Chief while overseeing 70% of the military deaths in the Afghan War, currently getting a free pass while he polishes up his little Nobel Peace Prize back at the White House?
Via CNS News:
Of the 1,912 U.S. military personnel who have died in the now nearly 11-year-long war in Afghanistan, 1,343 have died since President Barack Obama was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009.
Seventy percent of the Afghan War casualties have happened on Obama’s watch…
… The three years of the Obama have been the three deadliest for U.S. forces in Afghanistan. In 2009, 303 U.S. service members perished there. In 2010, 497 did. In 2011, 399 U.S. military personnel died in Afghanistan.
Obama has also presided over the top five deadliest months of the war, which include: August 2011, when there were 71 deaths; July 2010, when there were 65 deaths; June 2010, when there were 60 deaths; October 2009, when there were 58 deaths; and August 2010, when there were 55 deaths.
Where is Cindy Sheehan? Where are the Code Pinkos?
I know, I know, much like the economy, the war was much worse than anyone could have ever expected. And President Obama actually prevented many more deaths through his foreign policy actions.
Pathetic. Hold the man accountable.
