Almost 3000

Bush "honored" the people who died in 9/11 by saluting the "the nearly 3,000 people who were killed on September 11, 2001."

If you look it up, there were actually 2,749 people killed that day, so there are 251 ghosts that never were.

On the other hand, you could also say there have been nearly 3000 soldiers killed in Iraq since the war began there. But, in fact, there have only been 2666 US soldiers killed in Iraq.

That's leaving out the 45,000 iraqis that have been killed so far.
