CNS Body-Counters Tout Lack of Troop Deaths in Iraq

When August became the worst month ever for U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan, you'd think would have pounced on that news right away, given its history of hyping troop deaths in Afghanistan in order to attack President Obama (and, in particular, its politicizing of the deaths of 30 troops in a helicopter crash that contributed greatly to August's toll).

But, surprisingly, it hasn't yet, even though it's usually quick to crank out a body-count article in the first day or two of the new month. Instead, a Sept. 2 article by Patrick Goodenough announces that "August marked the first month since March 2003 that not one member of the U.S. military was reported to have died in Iraq or while deployed in neighboring areas in support of operations in Iraq, either in combat or non-hostile circumstances."

Of course, in contrast to its Afghan body-counting, CNS has a history of touting decreases in troop deaths in Iraq.
