US Death Toll in Iraq - Higher Than Reported

So you think that you know how many Americans died in Iraq? Think again! The son of a close friend of mine was a Special Forces Staff Sergeant who worked with Tommy Franks and had left the military to work for a “private” security firm. He was in the Army and he was involved in the invasion. He has been working as a private security person since he left the Army last year (making a nice living, to say the least).

Well he just let us know that while he was home on leave this month, two of his team mates were killed in Iraq. One was an American and one was a Canadian. Did you hear about this on the news? Did you see this listed on the Centcom website? Are their deaths part of any official death toll related to the US invasion of Iraq? The answer to all of these questions is NO!

So how many other Americans have died in Iraq without our knowing? I have a feeling the number would shake the Bush administration to its core. But then again…shaking this administration means nothing. Dictators are inured to public outrage! Think about it!

    Hey Jesse! You are on track again! There have already been reports that if a soldier dies while in transit to a hospital outside of Iraq, he/she is not counted. And if a soldier dies in one of the hospitals outside of Iraq, like the one in Germany, he/she is not counted. They only count those who die in Iraq. Fudging the numbers completely! And why aren’t the numbers from Afghanistan being added either? I saw one report that said the numbers could be closer to 10,000+ (if you add Iraq, Afghanistan and in transit/hospital deaths). If I run across that report again, I will send it to you.
