Counting Iraqi Casualties and a Media Controversy

John Tirman of Editor & Publisher writes: "One puzzling aspect of the news media's coverage of the Iraq war is their squeamish treatment of Iraqi casualties. The scale of fatalities and wounded is a difficult number to calculate, but its importance should be obvious. Yet, apart from some rare and sporadic attention to mortality figures, the topic is virtually absent from the airwaves and news pages of America. This absence leaves the field to gross misunderstandings, ideological agendas, and political vendettas. The upshot is that the American public - and US policy makers, for that matter - are badly informed on a vital dimension of the war effort."

Deploying such convicted service members to a war zone violates military regulations and, in some cases, federal law."
