After a little prompting from TPM, the Pentagon finally releases overdue figures showing attacks on US-led forces, local security personnel and civilians in Iraq 'at all-time high':
"Attack levels - both overall and in all specific measurable categories - were the highest on record during this reporting period," said the report, entitled Measuring Stability and Security in Iraq, produced for the US Congress.

The average number of attacks per week rose to 959 in the three months between August 12 and November 10 from 784 in the previous three months, according to figures provided by the Pentagon to accompany the report.
