[QUOTE]Using the actual figures from the Congressional Research Service report cited above, the total military deaths under each of the two administrations are as follows:
Bill Clinton (1993 - 2000) ............. 7,500 deaths
George W. Bush (2001 - 2006) .... 8,792 deaths
Moreover, of the 7,500 fatalities that occurred on Clinton's watch, only 76 were attributable to hostile action (as compared to 2,596 under Bush); the rest were the result of accidents, homicide, illness, self-inflicted injuries, or unknown causes.
For the record, here are the accurate totals for the past 26 years, including those omitted from the message above:
