Heres the facts

1728 US troops have died in Afghanistan since October 7, 2001

1153 of those deaths occurred since President Obama’s 1st inauguration.

575 US troops died in Afghanistan during President Bush’s term in office.

---

And ALL of them died because Bush made stupid decisions and wanted to play soldier. He stepped into a steaming pile and had no clue how to execute it, manage it, succeed in it, and exit it. He screwed it up royally from the start.

Those are the facts. There was no good exit strategy, no good options to extract ourselves from the mess Bush started. Yanking the troops out as soon as Obama took office would have been a worse disaster.

Doing a body count only makes Bush look all the worse.
