100,000 Iraqi insurgents?

Jeffrey White, a former senior Defense Intelligence Agency analyst ... who's now at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said his conservative estimate is that there are some 100,000 Iraqis involved in the Sunni insurgency, including fighters, messengers and people who provide logistical, housing and other assistance.

That's from a Knight Ridder story.

Gosh, was it only a month ago that The New York Times said the number of Iraqi insurgents was 20,000?
