[Michael]:What a Difference A Day Makes Discuss This [1 comment so far] View Comments

"During the Vietnam War, enemy body counts became a regular feature in military statements intended to demonstrate progress. But the statistics ended up proving poor indicators of the war's course. Pressure on U.S. units to produce high death tolls led to inflated tallies, which tore at Pentagon credibility." -- Washington Post, October 24, 2005.

"A U.S. Army sergeant died of wounds suffered in Iraq, the Pentagon announced Tuesday. The death _ along with two others announced Tuesday _ brought to 2,000 the number of U.S. military members who have died since the start of the Iraq conflict in 2003." -- Washington Post, October 25, 2005.

I borrowed this from another site. I didn't find it myself since I don't regularly read the Washington Post.
