Dead Soldiers


All of these abuse stories coming out of Iraq have made it sound like a desperate struggle over there in the past few weeks. But, this afternoon I was listening to the news about the battles in and around Najaf and it struck me that I have not heard of very many soldiers being killed lately.

Is the media focusing on the prison torture because there aren’t enough dead soldiers to throw in Bush’s face?

  • I wrote a piece on that a few days ago. Before the prison photos were released the week averaged 5 soldiers per day killed. After the photos, 1.8.
