Democracy Now: July Becomes Deadliest Month for US in Afghanistan

Three more US service members have died in Afghanistan, making July the deadliest month for the United States of the nearly nine-year war. At least sixty-three US troops have died so far this month, surpassing last month’s record toll. On Wednesday night, soldiers found the body of Navy sailor Jarod Newlove of Renton, Washington. He was one of two sailors who went missing last week after reportedly being ambushed by the Taliban. Earlier in the week, troops found the body of sailor Justin McNeley from Wheat Ridge, Colorado.
