Uh, what?

This from Bush’s speech last night: “For every scene of destruction in Iraq, there are more scenes of rebuilding and hope,” he said. “For every life lost, there are countless more lives reclaimed.” There are countless lives reclaimed??? Are we bringing people back to life? Are there really not 30,000 dead civilians and 2,100 dead soldiers, because a lot of those people have been “reclaimed”? Was that some sort of strange Orwellian doublespeak, or I am I just out in the cold when it comes to that term? Can someone please explain this to me?
