(CNSNews.com) A majority of all combat-related U.S. casualties in the nine-year-long war in Afghanistan have occurred since President Barack Obama was inaugurated a little more than 17 months ago.
Between Jan. 20, 2009 and July 2, 2010, according to CNSNews.com's database of Afghanistan war casualties, U.S. military personnel suffered 452 combat-related deaths in Afghanistan. That amounts to more than half of the total of 900 combat-related fatalities suffered by U.S. forces in Afghanistan during the entire nine years of the war.

did not know that...very sad and unfortunately enlightening
Obama lied soldiers died.
That is a statistic the the democrats/MSM will try their best to hide or spin as Bush’s fault.
And of course when you order your men to tie one hand behind their back.....
I hope this news really gets out there. Everyone in the military NEEDS to know this.
I have noticed the deaths and MSM says nothing..
The story is still there, but the video is now only a few stills
our traitor in chief is aiding and abetting our enemy in killing our troops = ducks in a shooting gallery and not allowed to defend themselves - no cover.
August was the deadliest month of the whole war for our troops = Sept is setting up to be even worse...because of the new ROE - Rules of Engagement...
which are NOT to provide air cover for our troops, even when ambushed, pinned down and being killed. (the rationale for these new ROE’s admits that it will cause more deaths for our troops now but that it will be worth it in the long run. Worth it for WHO?)
That is treason. Pure and simple. That is aiding and abetting the enemy, who now knows THEY have the cover, not our troops - and they are ramping it up*****************
This has gone on month after month - and a new twist. obama has now introduced a new medal - that rewards an act never before so awarded in the history of warfare. Indeed, a soldier, heretofore, would more likely be brought up on charges of endangering his fellow soldiers. That medal: given for RESTRAINING from RETURNNG INCOMOING FIRE.
It's obvious that the CICINO’s sympathies are with the enemy.
This MUST be addressed.
This must be stopped.
We should all make signs and display on our front lawns, on our car - “STOP the new ROE.”
“DEFEND OUR TROOPS, NOT THE TALIBAN”
Obama LIES and US citizens die.
i would also look into the people and who is being shifted into the region. my guess, the real war fighters or those that do not believe in marxism.
and yes, i have zer0 problems believing the current _resident would put our military into a meat grinder for his own purposes.
Agree. Under the present administration, it's time to bring our troops home.
Rules of Engagement
Just like my tagline says. Wake up!
And the media will not report this.
