Sharp Drop Seen in US Deaths in Iraq

Will wonders never cease? A positive story about Iraq by the AP? But don't worry, they were still able to find some less than positive news to include, to you know, keep it "fair and balanced".

"While U.S. death figures appear to be in sharp decline, the number of Iraqi civilians and security forces show a less dramatic drop. And any significant attack — by insurgents or civilians caught in the crossfire — could quickly wipe out the downward trend."

Funny thing is, I just don't recall any prior AP stories that discussed the rising death toll including a similar caveat that "any significant offensive operations by US forces -- could quickly wipe out the upward trend". I must have just missed those...
