New Casualty Numbers?
The Oxford Research Group has a briefing paper titled ‘A Never-Ending War? Consequences of September 11.’ In this briefing, we learn that one of the problems following 9/11 is the assertion that:
More innocent lives may have been lost in Afghanistan than on September 11 (between 2-8,000 deaths).
So much for Herold’s statistics. Now there may be 8,000 civilian casualties (I am assuming that is what an innocent life is).
The whole thing is just a disgusting rehash of all the same bizarre complaints from the root cause anti-war crowd.
“Little attempt made to understand the motivations for the September 11 attacks, or to see them as part of a longer-term strategy”.
