The MSM is all abuzz about the new "grim milestone". According to the military experts at ABC and other outlets, there is some sort of permanent mark on the wall created by the 2,973 Americans killed on 9-11. This number has become some sort of barometer of success or failure for the Bush Administration....as decided by the MSM.
Of course the number of dead Americans on 9-11 has no correlation with the number of dead US servicemembers in Iraq. According to the Joe Wilson/MSM version of the truth, there was never any connection between Iraq and 9-11, so why make one now?
But there is a correlation to that number that does make some sense, and which has a firm connection to 9-11. When did the number of al Queda in Afghanistan killed by the US surpass the number of Americans in the US killed by al Queda?
That date was sometime near the end of November 2001.
Years before the start of OIF.
Was that milestone reported? Nah, the reporters were too busy romatically reporting on the effete protests worldwide against the battles in Afghanistan, and thereby reliving their own glory protest days.
