The question is will we see the headline:
Today, US Military deaths reach 5,000 in Iraq?
Today, US Military deaths reach 10,000 in Iraq?
Today, US Military deaths reach 20,000 in Iraq?
Can anyone really give an answer.

Hence, the connection to uranium cakes in Niger, Dick Cheney and Victoria Plame.
The Cheney-Libby conversation occurred the same day that The Washington Post published a front-page story about the CIA sending a retired diplomat to Africa, where he was unable to corroborate intelligence that Iraq was trying to acquire uranium yellowcake from Niger. The diplomat was Wilson.
A year after Wilson's trip, President Bush cited British intelligence in his State of the Union address as suggesting that Iraq was pursuing uranium in Africa.
