"The number of American military deaths in Iraq reached 1,000 Tuesday as fierce fighting erupted between U.S. forces and insurgents in Baghdad and Fallouja.  The grim milestone comes amid a heated presidential campaign in which the decision to go to war in Iraq has become a central and divisive issue."  Los Angeles Times, Sept. 8, 2004.

"And when all else fails, when Katrina happens, or the death toll in Iraq mounts, we've been told that our crises are somebody else's fault. We're distracted from our real failures, and told to blame the other party..."  Barack Obama, February 2007.
