Hey, Obama, how's that "winning Afghan hearts and minds" and "protecting civilians at all costs" working out for you?
Obama’s devastatingly restrictive Rules of Engagement have caused more US troops to be killed since he took office than in the whole duration of the war. And while civilian deaths by U.S. forces have declined, they have skyrocketed from Taliban insurgents.
Gee, I wonder if that’s because our troops practically have to get a permission slip from the White House before they can fire at the enemy?
