President Bush announced this today in his speech to the VFW:

“In Iraq, our troops are taking the fight to the extremists and radicals and murderers all throughout the country.  Our troops have killed or captured an average of more than 1,500 al Qaeda terrorists and other extremists every month since January of this year.  (Applause.)  We’re in the fight.  Today our troops are carrying out a surge that is helping bring former Sunni insurgents into the fight against the extremists and radicals, into the fight against al Qaeda, into the fight against the enemy that would do us harm.  They’re clearing out the terrorists out of population centers, they’re giving families in liberated Iraqi cities a look at a decent and hopeful life.”

This is a huge number, of enormous significance not just to the future of Iraq but to the safety of the West as well, and underscores the stakes involved in the battle.
