"In 2010, there were more IED deaths than the first eight years of the war combined. According to iCasualties, there were 275 such fatalities in 2009, 368 in 2010 and 252 in 2011. The number of IED deaths may be ultimately down -- 12 in 2012 so far -- but battlefield medicine is allowing more of these guys to come home on a stretcher instead of a box, which then allows the military to better obfuscate how bad it’s become out there."
