Dear Casi The BBC has two figures for American casualties in Iraq. They tell us “Fifty-five Americans have died in such attacks since President George W Bush declared hostilities in Iraq largely over on 1 May.“ http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/3135747.stm. Then they tell us “US Central Command has reported the deaths of 101 American service personnel in Iraq since 1 May when President Bush declared that major combat was over.” Adding “The following entries are based on day-to-day Central Command news releases and do not cover war-related casualties outside Iraq or the possible deaths of soldiers succumbing to their wounds at a later stage.” http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/3019552.stm. Are they telling us half the truth? How many American soldiers died “succumbing to their wounds at a later stage”? Are those casualties or not?
