Lancet 100,000 again

Lancet 100,000 again

Black Triangle has a post discussing the statistical appropriateness of the Lancet Study of Iraq mortality, comparing it with the more recent ILCS study by the UN. He has the links. Here is his conclusion, which I share with somewhat less vehemence.

...I still stand by the point that to use the Lancet report to say the US has killed 100,000 people in the Iraq war is simplistic twaddle ...

My own exhaustive [ed.: exhausting?] evaluation of the Lancet study begins here, here, here and especially here. I have been negligent on this issue. I'll try to get back to it.
