If Bush was still president . . .

Twelve Afghans died Sunday when two rockets fired at insurgents missed their target and struck a house in Marjah during the second day of NATO's most ambitious effort yet to break the militants' grip on the country's dangerous south.

NATO said two rockets were aimed at insurgents firing on Afghan and NATO-led forces but struck 1,000 feet away.

The civilian deaths were a blow to NATO and Afghan government attempts to win the allegiance of Afghans and get them to turn away from the insurgents.

If Bush was still president, this would be cited as further proof of incompetence and the futility of the operation.

But, Obama is president, so it's ignored.
