CASUALTY RATES SKYROCKET UNDER OBAMA

Hmm, an interesting statistic for a man who won a Nobel Peace Prize.

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.

During the Bush presidency, which ended on Jan. 20, 2009 with the inauguration of President Obama, 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, through today, 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. (LINK)

No worries. The MSM will take the president to task with tough questions and thorough investigations any minute now. /snark

    And there have been several US casualties in Iraq in the last few weeks too. And hardly a peep from the MSM.

    Oh and there were those changes to the rules of engagement that the Obama Administration handed down when he got in too. Nothing like sacrificing our boys to look less threatening to the guys killing them.
