Now that their man is in the White House, we do not hear report after report about the death count of American soldiers in this war against terror. The American Pravda is beyond shameful in its reporting to the public. True professionals would be objective in their coverage and would hold any administration, Democrat or Republican, accountable for its actions. But, not these worthless lapdog journalists/cheerleaders in our corrupt media.
Get a load of the death count in Afghanistan under the peace candidate turned president, Barack Obama, via The Blaze:
US Troop Deaths in Afghanistan Under Obama Surpass 1,000: Two-Thirds of US Casualties in War
Just Foreign Policy
"Last August, the number of U.S. troop casualties in Afghanistan under President Barack Obama became equal to the number of Afghanistan casualties under former President George W. Bush, at 575.
This past week, the number of U.S. casualties in Afghanistan under Obama surpassed 1,000, bringing the total to 1,657. As the planned troop drawdown nears, the number of American deaths has escalated under Obama’s command.
Nonprofit advocacy group Just Foreign Policy noted:
'That means that nearly two-thirds of the U.S. fatalities in the war in Afghanistan have occurred during the Obama administration, which has managed the war for a mere quarter of its duration.'
Newly installed Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta was in Afghanistan this weekend before heading to Baghdad to meet with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki."
Speaking of our brave men and women in uniform, for those who choose to leave the military to go out into the private sector looking for a job, the environment is even tougher for military personnel than the average citizen. Read from Weasel Zippers:
