Has anyone else noticed that the reporting of Coalition casualties has changed drastically in the last week or so?
Articles on BBC and other mainstream news sites are now reporting things like "a dozen U.S. Soldiers have been killed since May 1st." -or- "About 20 Coalition troops have died since Bush declared the end of hostilities at the beginning of May.". A couple of weeks ago the numbers were much higher! I was able to find a recent story online that states, "... 56 Americans on the honor roll of troops lost since the formal end of hostilities." This is closer to the numbers that were being reported by everyone not too long ago. I understand the tactic and why the establishment would want to spin things to look a bit less bleak. What I don't understand is how everyone could adopt this policy of underreportage. It also seems weird that the change came practically overnight. At any rate, I was wondering if anyone else had noticed this and whether or not there is a good source for an accurate count of casualties? I'm familiar with the one showing all Coalition casualties but they aren't organized chronologically so it's harder to tell how many died after May 1st.
