Every single day

I swear it--every single day we hear of something worse than the day before. Still, this is hard to top.
Extra Armor Could Have Saved Many Lives, Study Shows. It's a story from today's Times, and it makes clear that 80% of the Marines who have died in Iraq from wounds to the torso could have survived if they had had more body armor, which the Pentagon "declined to supply" despite calls from the field to supplement the armor it supplies.

Can anyone tell me why this is not simply and literally criminal?
