    In several threads I've witnessed the continual attack on GW for the number of deaths of soldiers in Iraq (4,000 plus) and that liberals hold him as CIC completely and utterly responsible.

    The buck does stop at the President's desk.

    So why no outrage over the number of deaths of servicemen in Afghanistan? Why the silence? Why the crickets?

    Because hypocrisy thy name is liberal....

    CNSNews.com) - Although President Obama has only served 39 months in office, 69 percent of the U.S. military fatalities in the more than 10-year-old war in Afghanistan have occurred on his watch.

    Through April 30, the Defense Department had reported that 1,844 U.S. military personnel have been killed in and around Afghanistan while deployed in Operation Enduring Freedom, which was launched in October 2001 after al Qaeda terrorists attacked the World Trade Towers and the Pentagon.

    According to CNSNews.com’s comprehensive database on Afghan war casualties, at least 1,275 of the 1,844 U.S. troops killed in the Afghanistan conflict have been killed since Jan. 20, 2009, when Barack Obama was inaugurated as president.

    In the more than 10 years the U.S. military has been fighting in Afghanistan, each of the three deadliest years have been during Obama’s presidency. The deadliest year was 2010, when 497 U.S. service personnel gave their lives in Afghanistan. The second deadliest year was 2011, when 399 U.S. service personnel gave their lives in Afghanistan. And the third deadliest year was 2009, when 303 U.S. service personnel gave their lives in Afghanistan

    Obama went against the advice of his generals on the ground to increase troops b/c he wanted to do his political ploy. It's sad that Americans have to die at the hands of that d-bag Kenyan Muslim.

    I know. Where's Code Pink?

    The double standard never ceases to amaze me.

    Republicans war = bad, evil and war crimes

    Democrats war = crickets, silence, and look the other way

    I hadn't thought about that. I couldn't go a week w/o hearing about that **** when Dubya was in power. Now it's like she doesn't exist.

    Afghanistan is the place the 9/11 attack was launched from by Osama Bin Laden. The terrorist Republicans let go and then stopped looking for. True story.

    So now the Republicans are terrorists? But the Democrats aren't?

    Even though 69% of the deaths in Afghanistan are on Obama's watch?

    In their (sorta) defense they pulled her out from under the bus from the start. She was a deadbeat mother playing upon the memory of a dead son who wanted nothing to do with her.
