Afghanistan, again

"With the death of four U.S. soldiers Tuesday, the U.S-led NATO coalition in Afghanistan now has lost more troops this year than in all of 2008, and August is on track to be the deadliest month for American troops there since the war began more than eight years ago. . . Army Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, the U.S. commander in Afghanistan, is considering asking for more U.S. troops even as opinion polls show that a majority of Americans think the war is not worth the cost. . . In July, 45 U.S. troops died in Afghanistan, the highest monthly toll this year. So far in August, 40 Americans have died . . ."

Imagine the media and "progressive" response to this news if this was President Clinton's or President McCain's fiasco. At what point in time will they stop excusing President Obama's military policy incompetence?
