Seven more soldiers killed
Six in a Blackhawk crash. Six more wounded as well.

At least the NY Times is now reporting all of the deaths caused by aWol:

Those deaths brought to 382 the number of American soldiers who have died in Iraq or Kuwait since the United States invaded Iraq on March 19.

In most previous reports, they have just given the deaths from hostile fire since May 1, which is about 1/3 of that number. I guess they finally realized that those who died in accidents, or from illness, or suicide, or whatever, or who died before May1, are just as dead, and their families grieve just as much (and their president cares just as little).
