I heard this on Rush yesterday and feel compelled to post on it. According to this DOD report, the death rates of military personnel were not much different in the first few years of Clinton's administration compared to Bush's first few years with a war.
In fact, we have lost a little over 3000 of our military in the last four years fighting in Iraq which is about 750 per year. During Clinton's first four years in office, the military lost over 4000 or 1000 per year. From 1980 to 2004, it looks like we lost approx 1000 a year on average. The numbers went down during the last years of Clinton but that is due to his significant cuts in the military.
This goes to show how ridiculous the daily MSM military death count is. It is so out of proportion to reality and exposes their anti-war, pacifist agenda.
