Posted on 12/09/2013 2:31:39 PM PST by ColdOne
Almost three quarters of the 2,153 U.S. military fatalities in the 12-year-old Afghanistan war have taken place since Obama was first inaugurated, according to an Associated Press (AP) tally.
Using the APs Afghanistan casualties database, Breitbart News calculated that between January 20, 2009, and the end of last month 1,595 U.S. soldiers lost their lives in the Afghanistan conflict. The total number of military deaths so far is 2,153.
That means that about 74 percent of all U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan have taken place under Obamas watch. During the eight years of the previous administration there were only 558 fatalities, or about 26 percent of the deaths that have taken place from October 7, 2001, the start of the war, to November 30, 2013.
No deaths had been reported for December 2013 at the time of this writing.
The information in the AP database is gleaned from AP news reports and confirmed by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

He wouldn't want it any other way.
“He wouldn’t want it any other way.”
Exactly. Hussein is real proud of himself for an achievement of this magnitude.
Remember how the MSM wanted to show pictures of caskets of US war dead?
And Liberals claim the news is not biased!
Wait. I've never heard it from the MSM. I'm sure that I will be sick of hearing it from now on from the MSM. I mean, right?
Paging Cindy Sheehan and Code Pink!
Muslims do not belong in the modern world. Their nations should be reduced to the stone age.
MSM couldn’t possibly care less about military casualties that occur under a president they’re propping up.
These deaths don’t advance the MSM agenda, so they’re ignored.
no one has ever pacified Afganistan. could never understand how we thought we could. the best thing we could do there is get the f—k out of there.
Nobody ever went in there and took as few casualties as we did during our first two years. But we had to become busy-bodies and dictate a PC-type government.
Yet we gave them a new constitution that stated Sharia is the highest law of the land. We gave them a Taliban-approved constitution but their beef was that the Sharia business wasn’t being adhered to strictly enough.
We should have had a clandestine effort to convert as many as possible to Christianity. That way after getting out we may have planted some seeds with some tribesmen that had a cram course in living by the New Testament and fighting by the Old Testament.
