George Alexander of Fort Benning has the horrifying honor of being the 2,000th US casualty in Iraq.
Since George W. Bush's "Mission Acomplished" speech on the USS Abraham Lincoln, 1861 more Americans have died. So much for that.
"Has any of this registered with the war president, the commander-in-chief who hasn't yet attended his first military funeral? Has it registered with his secretary of defense, who wasn't even personally signing killed-in-action letters? The answers to both questions, sadly, is "doubtful."" -Joseph Hughes
