Military's Advice to Reporters: 2,000 Dead in Iraq 'Not a Milestone'
Advertisements [?]
Oh no, of course not. We reach 2000 deaths in an unnecessary war Quite often, I'm sure.........

U.S. Army Lt. Col. Steve Boylan, director of the force's combined press center, wrote in an e-mail to reporters, "I ask that when you report on the events, take a moment to think about the effects on the families and those serving in Iraq. The 2,000 service members killed in Iraq supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom is not a milestone. It is an artificial mark on the wall set by individuals or groups with specific agendas and ulterior motives."
