There were quite a few more American troops KIA in Viet Nam than the 25,000 he cited on a Texas radio show.
(Trying like mad to give him the benefit of the doubt)
Was he referring to a 'after some milestone' figure?
Or was it an attack of massive ignorance on his part?
Regarding his trotting out the "we support the troops" message after whining about his comments being taken "out of context", I have just one thing to say:
Nothing says "We support you!" like "You're doomed to fail."
Dean's going to complete the job of running the Democrat Party right off the rails.
