Every death counts against the USA

Big Lizard reports that Old Media has used misleading numbers once again. In this case, by stating “4,000 people have died in Afghanistan in the last year” without labeling who those people are. Big Lizard has good evidence that most (if not almost all) of them were Taliban. If so, the number is an indication of how the Taliban are getting slaughtered, not how they’re doing well. But we can’t have that sort of thing in the newspapers, can we?
