The bottom line is clear: Our vital interests in Afghanistan are limited and military victory is not the key to achieving them. On the contrary, waging a lengthy counterinsurgency war in Afghanistan may well do more to aid Taliban recruiting than to dismantle the group, help spread conflict further into Pakistan, unify radical groups that might otherwise be quarreling amongst themselves, threaten the long-term health of the U.S. economy, and prevent the U.S. government from turning its full attention to other pressing problems. -- Afghanistan Study Group

In total the logs record 109,032 deaths and of these 66,081 are civilians, nearly two-thirds of all deaths logged by US troops in the six year period.
A further 176,000 civilians are also reported as wounded.

I thought Bush said Americans don't do civilian body counts. Liars like the American soldiers who write their lies in their reports.
