... The 391,832 reports ('The Iraq War Logs'), document the
war and occupation in Iraq, from 1st January 2004 to 31st December 2009 (except for the months of May 2004 and March 2009)
as told by soldiers in the United States Army.
Each is a 'SIGACT' or Significant Action in the war.
They detail events as seen and heard by the US military troops on the ground in Iraq and are the first real glimpse into the secret history of the war that the United States government has been privy to throughout.
The reports detail
109,032 deaths in Iraq, comprised of
23,984 'enemy' (those labeled as insurgents);
15,196 'host nation' (Iraqi government forces)
and 3,771 'friendly' (coalition forces).
The majority of the deaths (66,000, over 60%) of these are civilian deaths.
31 civilians dying every day
during the six year period.
For comparison, the 'Afghan War Diaries', previously released by WikiLeaks, covering the same period,
detail the deaths of
some 20,000 people.
Iraq during the same period, was five times as lethal with equivalent population size.
