LGF – Grim Milestone Watch

Mainstream media is full of stories this morning trumpeting the “grim milestone:” U.S. Troop Deaths In Iraq Exceed 9/11 Toll, 6 More GI Deaths Put Military Past Grim Milestone As 36 Iraqis Die In Other Attacks.

The Sept. 11, 2001, attacks claimed 2,973 victims in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. Opponents of President Bush have criticized him for raising the attacks as a justification for the protracted fight in Iraq.

Wow, that is downright patriotic, and coming from the MSM! I mean, what a great way to defend the president, to point out as a reason to go to war that the enemy has made a single work day in New York as dangerous as three and a half years in an intractable and unwinnable war zone.
