As the combat mission winds down in Bush’s war of choice, the death toll continues to rise to new levels in the war that Bush ignored. This is Obama’s problem now, obviously. But, history and the American people should never forgive Bush for letting the situation in Afghanistan get so out of control:
Twenty-two American soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan over the past five days, a sudden end-of-August spike that follows record-high death tolls for U.S. troops in June and July.
Seriously, back in October of 2001, when it seemed that most Americans were supportive of the war in Afghanistan, could you ever have imagined that we’d be seeing “record-high death tolls” in the summer of 2010?
