American Deaths in Iraq Hit Lowest Rate Since Invasion

Nine soldiers died in the country during March, making it the lowest fatality rate since the 2003 invasion and marking a milestone in the success of the “surge” strategy.

While the total number of US deaths stands at 4,263, the rate at which soldiers have been killed has dropped off dramatically since the bloody early days of the “surge” in spring, 2007, during which 330 died in three months.
