600,000 +- 599,453

I don't know if I'd trust a group who saw fit to release a previous study which reports an margin of uncertainty between 8,000 to 194,000 but for all those interested, the Lancet has released a new study which based on interviews with 1800 families around Iraq has determined that between 426,369 to 793,663 'civilians' have died.

If that type of degree of uncertainty doesn't put the results in enough of a questionable light, of the 101% of deaths represented in their latest study (and no that's not a typo, it's actually a total of their own percentages) they once again fail to differentiate between true civilian deaths and those of the military or insurgents.

Well they should be congratulated if for nothing else managing to even outdo their previous astronomical error range of 186,000 with their new 367,294.

I truly had no idea it was so easy to be a liberal pollster nowadays.

Rick at Right Wing Nuthouse does an excellent job in his initial dismantling of this latest Lancet offering.

Update:
It just gets better and better, LGF adds this link to a YouTube video of the Lancet Editor speaking to a recent anti-war crowd. He's got all the key points in there for any good moonbat rant; mentions of imperialism, how the government prefers the killing of children to the building of schools, etc..

Watch it for yourself and decide if this is the face of an impartial observer:
