Topic: Afghanistan

"More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the nine years before."
These statistics are now so out of date that the trend has actually reversed itself. U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan have been declining for the past four years.

In wake of Senate report, Dick Cheney says terrorists 'not covered by the Geneva Convention'
The truth is unlawful combatants are still accorded a minimum degree of protection, including a ban on "violence to life and person, in particular murder of all kinds, mutilation, cruel treatment and torture," and "outrages upon personal dignity, in particular humiliating and degrading treatment," both of which have been validated by the Supreme Court.

Cheney on torture report: Saddam Hussein 'had a 10-year relationship with al-Qaida'.
Chaney's claim on NBC’s Meet the Press, Dec. 14, 2014, is refuted by high-level government reports based on a trove of secret Iraqi government documents that fell into American hands after the invasion.
Marco Rubio
ISIS is "now the predominant Islamist group in Benghazi."
In reality besides some activity in pockets across the country, ISIS holds sway in Derna, but not so much in Benghazi.
Jeb Bush Fl
"ISIS didn't exist when my brother was president. Al-Qaida in Iraq was wiped out when my brother was president."
A group called ISIS didn’t exist while Bush was president, but the roots of the organization were indeed present and operating under a different banner. As far as claiming al-Qaida was "wiped out," most experts consider that a stretch. The group’s power certainly diminished under Bush but it wasn’t wiped out.
Donald Trump
The five Guantanamo detainees swapped for Bowe Bergdahl "are right now back on the battlefield."
The Taliban Five are known to be in Qatar, where they have been since their release over a year ago. Qatar is considered neutral ground -- not a battlefield -- and they are not allowed to leave the country.
