Did you know US deaths in Iraq during October were at their lowest monthly total ever? From Stars and Stripes–
October’s U.S. death toll in Iraq matched the lowest monthly total of the war, with 13 deaths — seven in combat — reported by the Defense Department.
The earlier low came in July of this year, as security improvements throughout the country translated into lowered violence targeted at U.S. troops.
The Pentagon figures for October mark the first time in the war that no U.S. combat deaths were reported in Iraq’s capital, Baghdad. The two Baghdad deaths were reported as nonhostile.
Probably not. The media wouldn’t want this to get too much play days before the Presidential election.
