Picture of the Day

(Iraq Body Count documents every death reported by at least two sources in the press. This total of 55, 131 is well below the Iraqi Interior Ministry's 100,000-150,000, but it is a concrete bottom on the estimates.

If you look at Anbar, for example, there's no way the number is as low as 2,634. It's just that there was/is no reporter access, especially in the worst periods like the US assaults on Fallujah, so the deaths don't show up in their body count.)

And, what does it say that we have no idea what the true numbers are?
