Republicans liked to attack Barack Obama during the presidential election because of Obama’s observation of the fact that American military attacks in Afghanistan are killing large numbers of civilians. They said that it was unpatriotic to point out the truth.
Look on over at the IHT, though, and you’ll see that, even after the election, large numbers of civilians are being killed in American military attacks – including as many as 80 people in a wedding party killed in one U.S. attack.
I suppose it’s just unpatriotic extremism to point out that this is happening. Forgive me my crime, but I just wanted to bring the topic up for long enough to ask: What does President Obama intend to do about this problem?
I’m presuming that Obama won’t just ignore it.
