2500

2500.
Q Tony, American deaths in Iraq have reached 2,500. Is there any response or reaction from the President on that? MR. SNOW: It's a number, and every time there's one of these 500 benchmarks people want something ... Any President who goes through a time of war feels very deeply the responsibility for sending men and women into harm's way, and feels very deeply the pain that the families feel. And this President is no different. You've seen it many times. You saw it, you saw it when he was in that ballroom, Terry, and you had this crowd of servicemen and women who were cheering loudly for the President, and he got choked up. So it's always a sad benchmark, and one of the things the President has said is that these people will not die in vain ... Q Was he told about the benchmark, the President? MR. SNOW: I don't know. I'm sure he will hear about it.
