AP: Iraqi deaths fall by 50 percent
According to the AP:
"The number of American troops and Iraqi civilians killed in the war fell in September to levels not seen in more than a year. The U.S. military said the lower count was at least partly a result of new strategies and 30,000 additional U.S. forces deployed this year."
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi issued a statement:
"This is very encouraging news. I'm hopeful it will continue, and that our fighting men and women of the United States armed forces will eventually be victorious in the war against terrorism and Islamofascism."
I made that Pelosi quote up, of course.
