With the deaths of four more soldiers last night, the U.S. military reached the grim marker of 4,000 soldier fatalities in Iraq. Both Sens. Barack Obama (D-IL) and Hillary Clinton (D-NY) released statements recognizing the soldiers for their sacrifice and mourning their families’ loss. One campaign, however, has been silent:

One note — John McCain’s office has issued a statement today about elections in Taiwan but nothing about the 4,000.

On his campaign website, McCain calls for “a greater military commitment” and says “more troops are necessary.”
