On This July 4th Weekend, We Continue to Remember the Unreported Sacrifices

As reported here several times, beginning more than six months ago, the real casualty count in Iraq, including personnel evacuated for battlefield injuries, is over 15,000. Figures from the administration put the number at around 3,000. But it's hard to keep lying forever without somebody noticing.

Almost 50 years ago a little book called How to Lie With Statistics showed how you could prove almost anything beyond a doubt, and fool almost anybody. I use the book today in teaching business classes. Browse through it at your local bookstore so you can better identify how this administration continues to lie to veterans and everyone else.
