  • Democrat Trashes Republicans
    Tim Blair, Oct 20, 2006. Johns Hopkins study leader Les Roberts ran in a Democrat primary for Congress in 2006. I googled around and it's the same Les Roberts indeed.
  • The Lancet: Medical Journal Or Activist Rag?
    J.F. Beck, RWDB, Oct 13, 2006. Provides info and many links about the Lancet and its sorry history since Richard Horton became its editor.
  • 655,000 War Dead?: A bogus study on Iraq casualties.
    Steven E. Moore, Opinion Journal (WSJ), Oct 18, 2006
  • Exaggeration won't save Iraqis: The new claims about the civilian death toll in Iraq are vastly overstated
    David Burchell, The Australian, Oct 19, 2006,20867,20604818-7583,00.html

  • The same Johns Hopkins team under the same Les Roberts had submitted another bogus report to the same Brit medical journal (the Lancet) just before the 2004 US election.

  • 100,000 Civilian Deaths Estimated in Iraq
    Rob Stein, Washington Post Staff Writer, Oct 29, 2004; Page A16. Even the WaPo casts doubt on the study and quotes Human Rights Watch senior military analyst Marc E. Garlasco saying "The methods that they used are certainly prone to inflation due to overcounting" & "These numbers seem to be inflated." (But look at article's title! An old journalistic trick -- the reader who only glances takes only the propaganda in.)
  • 100,000 Dead -- or 8,000: How many Iraqi civilians have died as a result of the war?
    Fred Kaplan, Slate, Oct 29, 2004
  • Bogus Lancet Study
    Shannon Love, Chicago Boyz, Oct 29, 2004
  • Comment on "Bogus Lancet Study"
    AMMackay, Chicago Boyz, Oct 29, 2004. Not only did the study's lead author Les Roberts submit it to the Lancet on condition that it be published before the 2004 US election, but also, as MacKay points out, the peer review process was extraordinarily compressed.
  • Lancet Civilian Death Report Kills the Truth
    Michael Fumento, Tech Central Station, Nov 1, 2004
