4 Americans Die In Afghan Bombing

The U.S. military says four American service members have been killed in a bombing in southern Afghanistan.

A U.S. statement Friday said that two of the service members were killed instantly in the blast and two others suffered fatal injuries in the same explosion. Names of the victims and the precise location of the Thursday attack were not released.

The latest deaths bring to 25 the number of American troops killed in Afghanistan this month.

    Obama should be tried for dereliction of duty for not sending more troops. The longer he waits the more troops will suffer. With 19 plus years in the Marines, I can tell you the men and women going over there beleive in what they are doing and should be supported by the President 110%.

    If the commander needs 40 thousands troops over there Obama should do what he says not what is PC. When my son goes I hope nothing happens because of not enough troops. Ather NAM is whats going on here.
