In yet another sin of omission, the national press corps has failed to report that more than twice as many U.S. military service people were killed in Afghanistan since Obama took office than in six and a half years of the Bush administration.

Nearly 100 soldiers have died in the last 122 days alone. The mainstream media must think dead soldiers under a Democrat are less dead than under a Republican. Remember when CNN ran daily body counts?

Obama, the anti-war Bush slanderer who pandered for votes from the likes of Code Pink, has just committed the U.S. to 12 more years in Afghanistan and billions of dollars in aid. Still, the MSM sycophants say nothing.
And what about the civilians? When Bush was in charge there was no end to organizations counting up the civilian deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan, you would have thought the American forces would have drowned in blood.

Do the civilians no longer exist, or do they no longer matter?
