Has anybody wondered or asked about the ironic silence of the media occurring under President Obama regarding the Afghanistan war? There’s good reason, for Obama anyway.
Reporter Tony Lee from Brietbart.com explains below, with data, information the mainstream media is purposefully ignoring. Obama would need to be accountable for these figures; hence, they are being kept away from public discussion. This article is dated September 11, 2012:
“……………..more U.S. soldiers have been killed and wounded during President Barack Obama’s first term in office than former President George W. Bush’s two terms. And the anti-war mainstream media that regularly counted the number of deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan under Bush, for the most part, has been silent on the number of deaths and casualties that have resulted under Obama.
Under former President George W. Bush, 575 American soldiers died and fewer than 3,000 were wounded in Afghanistan. This means under Obama, at least 1,405 soldiers have died and nearly 15,000 additional soldiers have been wounded, which means 70% of the deaths and nearly 80% of the injuries in Afghanistan have occurred under Obama’s watch.
In 2010, Obama sent 33,000 additional U.S. troops to Afghanistan as part of the “surge,” and Americans have been received with more hostility with each passing day. In June, Obama announced he would accelerate the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, and America would transfer security duties to the Afghans in 2014.
Because Obama is a Democrat, the media has been reluctant to shine more of a light on Afghanistan’s destabilization under Obama. Perhaps the media is afraid that such reports would make Americans question whether Obama has mismanaged the Afghanistan war like he has the economy. Or maybe the media does not want to report on anything that would make Democrats seem weak on national security, as was the case when Bill Clinton was president.
For whatever reason, the mainstream media is not reporting the striking increase in deaths and casualties in Afghanistan under Obama, again helping Obama through their omissions.”
These are unbelievable statistics. On his Sept.24, 2012 morning radio program, Glenn Beck stated that college tuition is going up 25%. Why is that? Does Obama want to make collegiate education so expensive that people who normally would have gone to college are now forfeiting that opportunity? Is this increased cost in education a devious way of dumbing down America for the democrat party political gain? Oh sure the democrat party says that they want educated voters but their actions show otherwise.
We have not heard from the mainstream media about these unbelievable numbers on the Afghan war and all the associated costs in lives etc. We heard the numbers reported under Bush II though. Wonder when the reporting hypocrisy will end? For an administration that applauds transparency from the outside, there has been little quality work done on the inside to affect changes Obama says he wants.
Translation: The President lies a lot. We, the American people, don’t call him out on it. We just let it go. I hope our passive behavior doesn’t keep him in office.
