Americans Less Aware About Iraq

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON - A new nationwide survey shows Americans are less aware about the number of military deaths in Iraq.

A survey by the Pew Research Center shows only 28% of people know the number of American fatalties.

Last summer nearly half of everyone interviewed knew the death tally.

As of Friday the number of military fatalities are 3,978.

March 19th will be the fifth anniversary of the U.S. moving into Iraq.
