U.S. Casualties in Iraq:
Most people realize that U.S. casualties in Iraq have dropped in the past year. This chart shows how far, showing a drop from about 70 or 80 deaths a month to about 20 deaths a month. If you take out non-hostile/non-combat deaths, current casualties are in the range of 10-15 deaths per month.

  Obviously, attitudes will vary about the significance of these figures. But I think the numbers were worth flagging either way.
