Fuzzy Math

30 months later, US starts releasing official #s. Good news: while insurgents claim about 450 kills over the last two weeks, the US boasts that we've killed/captured three times that many insurgents over the same period. Bad news: not all numbers necessarily line up.
Since 2003, U.S. forces have detained 40,000 people, twice U.S. generals' highest public estimate of the number of fighters in the insurgency.

BTW, if anyone wants to talk about this in comments, you know how to talk, right?

If someone is detained and released and detained again, is that counted once?

Are all the detainees insurgents?

Ohh, almost forgot: ARGGGHHH!
