"We don’t do body counts."

That is the quote from Gen. Tommy Franks that appears at the top of one of the most talked about news sites covering the invasion of Iraq.

The site is Iraqbodycount.net.

It attempts to tally the total number of civilians killed in the invasion. The site estimates between 574 and 733 Iraqi civilians have died since the attack began.

We are joined today with the site’s founder.
