Obama’s callous disregard for casualties

Approximately 80% of the fatalities our military has suffered in Afghanistan have taken place on Obama’s watch. Some might excuse that if Obama honestly believed it was in our national interest. But according to former Defense Secretary Robert Gates in his new memoir, Duty, Obama expected the strategy to fail. He ordered the surge only because he thought it would benefit him politically.

Does the press care? No, what they care about is a stupid political decision to cause a traffic jam on the way to a bridge.
