Iraq No More Dangerous than Washington D.C.?

When in doubt, blame the media! In this clip from "Your World with Cavuto" Congressman Steve King alleges that living in Iraq is not as dangerous as the media would make it seem, and he's got the statistics to prove it. According to statistics from icasulty.org, King states that it is actually more dangerous to live in Baltimore than Iraq. King states: "It's not as dangerous for the public in Iraq as has been portrayed by the news media."
The documentary "Iraq: The Hidden Story," previously posted on AlterNet, would beg to differ.
