The Iraq War: The Costs to States
By Erik Leaver and Jenny Shin
Facts and Figures of the Costs of the Iraq War to U.S. States
Five years ago, the Bush administration launched what may become the greatest foreign policy disaster of this country’s over 200 years of history, and today we stand on the threshold of the 4,000th American killed, the 30,000th American tragically wounded, and the millionth Iraqi dead.
These latest fact sheets outline the costs of this war to all 50 states and the District of Columbia to help illustrate the local costs of the war. It is designed for duplication and popular education.
