October and November 2007 have yielded the fewest U.S. casualties since the start of the war in 2003. September 2007 yielded the lowest since it tied with 42 in 2005. Otherwise, you’d have to go back to 2003 at the start of the war to find a lower figure. August 2007 yielded the lowest U.S. casualties since 2004.
Essentially, we’re seeing the best downward trends in both civilian and military fatalities since the start of the war. HOOAH!
