Clinton's Military Casualties

The New York Sun piece that argued that military casualties in the Clinton years compared unfavorably with military deaths in Iraq under president Bush is based on data that can be found here (PDF). As I suspected, almost all the deaths are either from illness, accident, suicide, or homicide. A total of 59 were caused by enemy action from 1993 - 1999. It is perfectly possible to make an intellectually honest case that the media pay too much attention to military deaths in wartime. Alicia Colon didn't manage it.
