This was debunked last year:

Second, If you'd actually go to page 11 of the document cited in the original blog post (http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/natsec/RL32492.pdf), you'll see that these numbers you posted aren't even correct numbers.

Wasn't it a certain Republican president who said "Trust, but verify?"

One thing that shows up in that post is the strikingly small numbers of deaths during the Clinton years,..... could that "possibly" be because Clinton desciminated our Military soooo much by cutting funding that there were no war practices or skirmish events going on that our Soldiers were involved in? I seem to remember that he tried to reduce our Military to almost nothing during his time in office, so the only men that got KIA were those on Embassy Posts or in ships like the one in Yemen and virtually defenseless at the time, with not much of a strong military backup to portect them.

1993 1,213 (Clinton)
1994 1,075 (Clinton)
1995 1,040 (Clinton)
1996 974 (Clinton)
1997 817 (Clinton)
1998 827 (Clinton)
1999 796 (Clinton)
2000 758 (Clinton)
