How many Iraqi prisoners have died?
I know no one knows this for sure, but what are the latest guesses as to how many Iraqi and Afghan prisoners have died while in US cutody?

I heard a caller on NPR this morning complaining that the press was making a big deal about nothing... "there MAY have been some MINOR abuses to the Iraqi prisoners, but they beheaded an American citizen. How can that compare? We haven't hurt anyone."

1. The torture was going on last fall and winter.
The beheading took place two weeks ago.

3. About 26 so far.
At Abu Ghraib anyways. I'd expect it to climb higher.

The caller, of course, is a fucking babykilling nazi.

There are 37 deaths of prisoners in US custody being investigated, including people arrested during the Afghanistan War and the Iraq War.
