1,275 of the 1,844 U.S. troops killed in an around Afghanistan, since the war began a little over 10 years ago, were killed after Barack Obama became President in 2009, CSN News reported.
Obama has been in office a little over 3 years now, and yet 69% percent of the U.S. military casualties occurred during his short tenure as President.
Perhaps the Taliban would have been less emboldened had Obama not announced his artificial timeline for surrender the very day he announced his [artificial] troop surge in Afghanistan. And, perhaps the Taliban would have been less emboldened had he not showed his desperation to negotiate and strike a deal with them. And, more than likely, there would have been a lot less U.S. military casualties in Afghanistan had the Appeaser-in-Chief not implemented his Policy of Emboldenment.
