Dr. Les Roberts defends the Iraq Casualty Study again

Originally published 11/2/06:

I really don’t want to let the story of the Johns Hopkins study published in the Lancet, finding 655,000 excess deaths in Iraq since the war (with US forces responsible for something like 186,000 of those deaths directly) started, just melt away into the oblivion of the recesses of our temporal lobes.

Media Lens has posted a question and answer session with Dr. Les Roberts, one of the authors of the study, and the principal author of the 2004 study.  In it he defends the methodology of the study and answers several questions posed to him about the study.

This is a huge reason why we need to leave that place pronto.
