Allied forces have suffered a day of heavy losses in Afghanistan in a helicopter crash that killed 6 U.S. Marines and an attack that killed four French service members and raised the prospect of France withdrawing its troops early.
The Marines died after their CH 53 helicopter crashed in Helmand province, a U.S. military official said. The NATO-led force reported no enemy activity in the area, but the Taliban claimed credit for bringing down the copter.
-- And for what? Why are they still there? Instead Obama bombs Libya and all the GOP candidates (except Ron Paul) all gloat about how they'll send more kids to Iran and wherever else in the Middle East.
