(In 4 1/2 years of a 12 year war.)
In total, 2,144 U.S. military personnel have given their lives fighting in and around Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.
1,575 of the U.S. military personnel who have sacrificed their lives in this cause were killed during the presidency of Barack Obama.
That means 73 percent of the casualties in the Afghan War have happened on Barack Obama’s watch.
Under President George W. Bush, from 2001 to 2008, 569 U.S. military personnel were killed in and around Afghanistan fighting in Operation Enduring Freedom.
So far this year, during the twelfth year of the Afghan War, 91 U.S. military personnel have given their lives in Afghanistan.
