Nearly 800 Contractors In Iraq Were Casualties


Source Link: www.msnbc.msn.com

In a largely invisible cost of the war in Iraq, nearly 800 civilians working under contract to the Pentagon have been killed and more than 3,300 hurt doing jobs normally handled by the U.S. military, according to figures gathered by The Associated Press.

Exactly how many of these employees doing the Pentagon's work are Americans is uncertain. But the casualty figures make it clear that the Defense Department's count of more than 3,100 U.S. military dead does not tell the whole story.

Wow the news submission is totally different now. In any event, these figures have up till now not been disclosed. almost 800 perished and another 3300 injured. These numbers are pretty staggering considering there were over 3000 soldiers that have died in Iraq. The only time it was ever really discussed was when a Civilian security team went down with their Helicopter and most of the MSM merely said "Americans" had died.
