A different kind of casualty count in Iraq.

iCasualties, the primary independent source for information about those who have died in Iraq, is now counting contractors too.

So far, they are listing 89 contractors who have died in Iraq, though those numbers apparently have a lot of holes in them, as there is no requirement for anyone to report such casualties at all, as far as I know. I just let them know about another contractor that they missed, so I guess that makes it 90 for now.

I wonder... will there ever be a memorial for them?
