This is a shameful performance for any member of Congress and especially a war hawk. Gingrey makes a remark about the defeatist---Democratic talking heads that go on teevee, but he's either lying or can't be bothered to take one minute of his time to accurately report the devastation that has been inflicted on our troops.

He says that only 3100 have died and 12-14 thousand have been injured severely. On IAVA's website, they report that: Official DoD Count of Troops Killed in Iraq: 3510 Troops Killed in Afghanistan: 396 Wounded in Action: 27269

Go contact him and ask Gingrey to get his facts straight. He at least owes that much to the troops.
