Major error?[edit]

Where does it say 17 American soldiers were killed? All the cited articles seem to indicate the casualties were Pakistani Army and police personnel. — 15:35, 19 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, this a disasterous error. --SVTCobra 16:32, 19 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Actually the second source. Which is why Tony snow was so pissed at the press conference and why the US said we will attack if WE see fit. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 19:37, 19 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Do you mean CNN? I don't think so. The Sac Bee is the one were Tony Snow talks, so I checked that one, too. They just say 17 troops, but from the context it is pretty clearly Pakistani troops. If you still say you are right, please quote the exact passage here. --SVTCobra 20:25, 19 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]
