"I am Colonel Tom C. McKenney
, You must know how to reach Bobby Garwood
. I directed an official mission to assassinate him behind enemy lines, because I believed what they
told me. Would you tell him that I will crawl on my hands and knees to beg his forgiveness?"

Sure, they died for their country, but who's counting?!
ABC has a webpage
for US personnel who have died during the war on terror, but it shows only 41 have casualties. Admittedly, they have yet to update their webpage after the latest casualties
, but even if they did, they would still be wrong. CNN recently said
that 47 US personnel have died in Operation Enduring Freedom. That number too is wrong.
To tell the truth, I couldn't find a single story on any major news website that lists all of the US personnel who have died in operation Enduring Freedom, but these sites
appear to be the closest. Neither are fully accurate, however.
A beer on me to the first person who can tell me exactly how many US personnel have died (post 9/11) as a part of Operation Enduring Freedom. Search the web. Find the names. Compare lists
. Extra points to anyone who can offer up some compelling reasons why our media overlords can't keep score. Do we want to know these people's names? Does it matter?!

has a story about a preliminary UN report claiming there could have been a cover-up regarding the "wedding-party airstrike" earlier this month. Reuters/Yahoo also has the story
but it's not getting much coverage in US media. This blog
claims the story is front page material in a few european countries. The US military denies
any cover up.
