DU help please ... link to the Washington Post's Abramowitz 10/12/06
story.

Great piece .... The 655,000 dead in Iraq study was reviewed by 4 outside experts and
all recommended it being published ...."powerful strength" of it's research ....
large margin of error 393,000 to 943,000 dead (range).

We can not let that little asshat bush say .... I don't agree with it (the study) and
whores like Glen Beck, Fox, & Paula Zahn try to kill it.

I have a print out of it in front of me but I would like to send it to a friend in the media.


thanx

1. I heard Barbara Starr on with Fat Eddie Schultz today. she was
downplaying the numbers, big time, citing the same margin of error.

SO WHAT?

even if it's the maximum, that's still FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND deaths

that's SO much more than anyone has estimated, yes?

Starr is one of the premier pentagon apologists, masquerading as a CNN pentagon reporter

hand on a minute.....

2. 400,000 is minium 940,000 is the max.
"they" want to kill this report big time.

Bottom line.

This study was done and funded by John's Hopkins, M. I. T., the
British Medical Journal, "Lancet." Those are heavy hitters.

3. here is your link, i think
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20...

Bush said he does not find credible a new report in the Lancet, a British medical journal, which estimates that 655,000 more Iraqis have died since coalition forces arrived than would have died without the invasion. In a comment in the journal, the editors said the study was reviewed by four outside experts, all of whom recommended publication, with one noting the "powerful strength" of the research method. The findings, however, have a large margin of error. The low-end estimate of excess deaths (both civilian and military) is 393,000, while the high-end estimate is 943,000.

Bush disputed the study's numbers but did not supply his own. "I do know," he said, "that a lot of innocent people have died, and that troubles me, and it grieves me."

4. Thank You!
All papers published in Lancet or JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Assoc.)
are peer reviewed prior to publishing ..... so bush, Paula Zahn, Glen Beck, and
others can not just say I don't like the report so it must be bad.
