Atough month for the Iraqis, too.
April was the deadliest month of the year for U.S. service members in Iraq, but it was an even grimmer month for Iraqi security forces, a high-ranking Pentagon official said this afternoon.
“I’d like to also express my condolences to the Iraqi people,” said Brig. Gen. Perry Wiggins, deputy operations director for the Joints Chiefs of Staff. “The Iraqis sustained over 300 Iraqi security force losses in the month of April.”
