The United States had 32,500 military personnel (of which 23,550 were with ISAF) in Afghanistan in 2008.

By 2011 there were 101,000

Draw downs have gotten us to 68,000, still twice what Bush had.

And did you know,

Over Twice as Many U.S. Soldiers Have Died in Afghanistan Under Obama In 3 1/2 Years Than Did Under Bush in 8 Years


Obama ... savior of the Middle East (well, except Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine ... and others)
