Troops loss X5 under President Obama

We never miss a chance to jump on the lame stream media. We never miss a chance to prove they worship at the altar of President Obama and are blind to facts. The biggest thing they do wrong is the complete 180 degree change in coverage they gave the white house under President Bush and how they handle it today. It turns out that the average monthly casualty rate for U.S. military forces serving in Afghanistan has increased 5-fold since President Barack Obama was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009. 1,540 U.S. troops have been killed in Afghanistan since Oct. 7, 2001, when U.S. forces began fighting in that country. During the Bush presidency, U.S. troops were present in Afghanistan for 87.4 months and suffered 570 casualties—a rate of 6.5 deaths per month. During the Obama presidency, U.S. troops have been present in Afghanistan for 29.1 months and have suffered 970 casualties—a rate of 33.3 deaths per month. The 970 U.S. casualties that have occurred while President Obama has been commander in chief equal 63 percent–or almost two-thirds—of all U.S. casualties that have taken place in the nearly-ten-year-long war. We wanted to let you know because we know you will hear practically nowhere else.
