Lancet Study Lanced Like a Festering Boil - [Liberrocky]

I am sure you all remember this Lancet study of Iraqi dead that was released, absolutely 100% coincidentally, right before the 2006 mid term elections.

Well it appears that this completely objective and non-biased survey was likely off by at least a factor of three.

The researchers estimate that the number of violent deaths in Iraq between the US-led invasion of March 2003 and the end of June 2006 to be between 104,000 and 223,000.

This loss of life is described as "massive", but is well below the figure of 600,000 violent deaths claimed by a team of Iraqi and US scientists in autumn 2006

In light of this, Lancet has issued an apology to the American people for totally unwittingly assisting Nancy Pelosi to the Speaker's chair.
