Today in Iraq

10/25/05 2,000 UNITED STATES TROOPS DEAD IN IRAQ

On September seventh of last year we crossed the grim toll of one thousand U.S. troops killed in Iraq. Today, just a little over a year later we hit the two thousand mark. President Bush is still in denial about anyone being hurt or killed American or Iraqi.
