Reading Around Iraq

From Holden:

As U.S. soldiers tighten their grip on one of the most sacred Islamic holy places Jimmy Breslin notes that the 1,000th U.S. military death in the War on Terra occurred on July 7, the 2nd Battalion of the 4th Marines Division has suffered a 20% casualty rate in Al Anbar Province (with the battalion’s Company E suffering a 36% casualty rate), and the Iraqi insurgency has organized itself to the point where 70% of their attacks against U.S. forces are now centrally controlled.
