Here’s the statistics in Afghanistan for the 8 years of George Bush. The total killed in action under him is 660. Barack Obama in 3 years and 5 months the total killed in action is a total of 1,398.

Wounded under George Bush is 2,637 in 8 years. Wounded under Obama up to January 31st of this year is 11,529.

Barack Obama, the leftwing media's idea of an effective leader.

God bless our military. May Obama and his leftwing allies receive exactly what they deserve for the abuse they've heaped upon this nation.

More Than 14,000 U.S. Troops Were Wounded In Afghanistan Since 2008 | The Congressional Research Service released a report this week that found that to date, 2,030 Americans have died in Afghanistan and in the broader Operation Enduring Freedom since October, 2001. Nearly 2,700 soldiers were wounded in Afghanistan from 2001 through 2008, while a staggering 14,143 have been wounded since, a period of time that included a substantial troop surge:

there is a graph at the site:

It is because of the surge and winning the fight there, but it would have been less because of the ROE.
