Such heavy losses are difficult to absorb, impossible to rationalize. Nobody knows for sure how many innocent Iraqi civilians have been killed during the U.S. occupation -- at least 18,600 are known to have died in 2007 alone. The monetary cost of the war is so high that the administration cannot -- or will not -- give Congress an accurate figure." Quotes-end.png
