I always get a kick out of these "More Americans have been killed by 'X' than by Islamic terrorism in the last 'Y' years" statements that progressives like to fling at us like they're supposed to prove something. Because 'Y' is always a number specially chosen so that it is almost, but not quite, big enough to include the year 2001.
