October IED Fatalities Down 50% in Iraq

Add this to the rest of the good news coming from Iraq.
CNS News reported:

Eighteen U.S. troops in Iraq were killed by IEDS in October, a greater than 50 percent decline from last October, when 37 U.S. troops were killed in Iraq by IEDs.

In total, according to an analysis by Cybercast News Service, there were 31 combat-related U.S. casualties in Iraq during October. That represents a 24 percent decline from September of this year (when there were 41 combat-related casualties) and a 66 percent decline from October of last year (when there were 91 combat-related U.S. casualties).

Of course, Democrat David Obey would argue that this has something to do with the “terrorists running out of people to kill.”

Let’s Do This refutes the Left’s pathetic explanation of casualty reductions.
