CNS Can't Stop Obsessing Over Afghan Body Counts
Topic: has long been obsessed with pinning U.S. casualties in Afghanistan while not doing the same for U.S. casualties in Iraq under President Bush.

This bias happens again in an Oct. 29 CNS article by Ali Meyer informing us that "'s database on casualties shows that 418 Marines have given their lives in the conflict and that 92% of those casualties, 385 deaths, have occurred since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009."

Meyer doesn't mention how many Marine casualties in Iraq occurred under Bush -- indeed, the words "Iraq" and "Bush" appear nowhere in her article. 

CNS has never explained why its "database on casualties" omits Iraq, even though they are part of the same conflict.
