Drug War Bloodshed: Debate rises over death toll in Mexico drug war
We've noticed that Calderon hasn't been counting.
Debate rises over death toll in Mexico drug war - CBS News: "The debate over how many have died in Mexico's 4 1/2-year-old drug war is intensifying, with the government refusing to release any new figures. The last official toll was just short of 35,000 lives. It came six months ago, and the pace of the slaughter seems to have continued. Some Mexican news media say the toll has topped 40,000 since President Felipe Calderon took office in December 2006."
