Tommy Franks quote in Iraq section
The inclusion of Gen. Tommy Franks' quote in reference to the Iraq war is misleading and strips the quote of all its context. Even if the quote was "widely reported" by op-ed and feature writers in context of the Iraq war, the quote itself was in reference to the death toll in a specific bombing campaign in Afghanistan that occurred before the Iraq war started (see. e.g.: http://www.nytimes.com/2003/04/02/world/nation-war-casualties-us-military-has-no-count-iraqi-dead-fighting.html; http://concept.journals.villanova.edu/article/download/264/227). The inclusion of this quote in a section dedicated to the Iraq war, and couched in the passive "was widely reported," seems (in my non-Wiki-savvy viewpoint) entirely inappropriate and contrary to encyclopedic rigor. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:27, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
