    War Casualties Under Reported?

    Tom Philpott | June 12, 2008
    Mental Wounds Said To Raise War Casualties Tenfold

    Rep. Bob Filner (D-Calif.), chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, charged Bush administration officials Wednesday with continuing to downplay the mental trauma and brain injuries suffered by veterans of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Filner said an April RAND Corp. study, "Invisible Wounds of War -- Psychological and Cognitive Injuries, Their Consequences, and Services to Assist Recovery," justifies a tenfold jump in the U.S. casualty count versus the figure of 33,000 American dead and wounded used by the Pentagon.

    Anything goes in democrat anti war wacko's effort to artificially inflate the number of casualties from the Iraq War.

    Simple bleeding from wounds sustained in combat is not a good enough standard anymore. Now they also want to count invisible "wounds".:rolleyes:
