Summary:

Nearly 800 contractors working in Iraq have been killed, the Associated Press learned from a FOIA request filed with the Labor Department, which tracks workers compensation claims. When a member of the U.S. military dies, officials issue a press release, but learning about contractor deaths requires using FOIA.
