Bush's war in Iraq has killed more Americans than 9/11

Well, it happened - counting up the numbers from this list of foreign civilian contractors killed in Iraq, as of August 17th, 137 American civilians died there. As of August 22d, a total of 2,613 American soldiers died there, giving an American death total of 2,750. According to wikipedia, the total American death toll on 9/11 was 2,738 (I can't find a better source than wikipedia, would love a reference somewhere else). Sometime in November, the US soldier death toll alone will exceed our losses on 9/11. Karl Rove is just hoping that won't happen until a day or two after the election.

I'd want some reaction from our Accountability President and his allies in Congress running for re-election, but I doubt it we'll get it.
