4,000

Just a few minutes ago, a bulletin from the New York Times reported that a roadside bomb in Baghdad killed four U.S. soldiers, bringing the official American death toll, as tabulated by the Associated Press, to 4,000.

The grim milestone came on the same day that rockets and mortars pounded the U.S.-protected Green Zone, underscoring the fragile security situation and the resilience of both Sunni and Shiite extremist groups despite an overall lull in violence.

Excuse me, but isn’t this famous “Green Zone” the same one that John McCain toured in an attempt to prove how safe the streets of Iraq have become?
