Contractor Deaths in Iraq Soar to Record - New York Times

Contractor Deaths in Iraq Soar to Record - New York Times:
At least 146 contract workers were killed in Iraq in the first three months of the year, by far the highest number for any quarter since the war began in March 2003, according to the Labor Department, which processes death and injury claims for those working as United States government contractors in Iraq.

2007 is the bloodiest, deadliest year yet in the occupation of Iraq. Is this the kind of "progress" Bush says we're making in Iraq? Our being there only makes things worse. Even the Iraqi government voted to have us leave. Isn't it way past time to get out?
