CNS Afghan Body Count Watch
Topic: CNSNews.com

CNSNews.com has long been obsessed with military body counts in Afghanistan in order to blame President Obama for their deaths. But CNS' lead body-count guy, Edwin Mora, appears to have left the "news" organization last August, leaving a hole in body-count coverage.

But never fear -- CNS has a reporter back on the body-count beat. A Jan. 11 CNS article by Patrick Burke carries the headline "72% of U.S. Casualities in Afghan War Under Obama's Watch."

Keeping up Mora's shoddy tradition, Burke refused to use the words "Bush" and "Iraq," thus depriving his readers of a direct comparison of the war record of the two presidents, and even though the remaining 28 percent of U.S. casualties in Afghanistan occurred under Bush's watch.
