Ryan Owen RIP: Why Were Record High Numbers of U.S War Dead and 20K Wounded Troops Under Obama IGNORED by Democrats and Leftwingers?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The Democrats are employing the same fake, forced concern for US Navy Seal, William “Ryan” Owen, killed in a critical counter-terror op in Yemen in January, as they are for for the continuing spate of antisemitic acts.  They couldn’t give a fig. Under President Obama’s incoherent foreign policy and crippling rules of engagement, the death toll and number of injured US soldiers spiked to unprecedented levels not seen seen since the Vietnam War. The enemedia never spoke it – ever. But if you recall, all through the Bush years, the enmedia gave daily death counts (even if no deaths had occurred). Under Obama, it as if these heroes never existed– now we are supposed to believe they care about one soldier? If they cared about the military they would not have allowed Obama to rout it. Worse, when Obama banned the media from covering media the return to the United States of the bodies of 22 Navy SEALs and eight other service members. The enemedia said nothing.   And yet the difference between the casualty rates under Bush versus Obama is staggering. But the enemedia insisted, nothing to see here folks. Of the over 20,000 US soldiers wounded in the Afghan war, over 90% under Obama. Where are their stories? Did the NY Times and Washington Post write up articles on whether their deaths and injuries were produced something they deemed worthwhile.

William “Ryan” Owen is a hero. he died fighting in defense of the freedom we hold so dear. He died doing what soldiers do. This sacrifice is something the Democrat extremists, the enemedia jackals and the left-wingers will never understand. On the country, they hate it. Hatred of the good for being the good.

We never saw any coverage of the army of dead and wounded under President Obama. But now, finally, the enemedia and the left-wing extremists have found them useful. Exploit their deaths to smear and destroy President Trump.

Aaron Blake over at the Washington Post is hand-wringing and finger-wagging about Owen’s death. Where are WaPo’s 20K plus articles on the previously dead of injured under Obama?
