Hat tip to Bob Geiger:
The New York Times reported yesterday on a secret Pentagon study concluding that a large number of Marines killed in Iraq – perhaps up to 80 percent of those who died of upper-body injuries – would have survived had they been properly equipped for battle.
How many times and for how many years have Bush and Rummy been promising they were doing everything that could possibly be done to provide our soldiers with the proper equipment?
