Lancet's October Suprise - Again

In October of 2004 Lancet - a British medical journal - released a study showing over 100,000 civilian deaths in Iraq in an attempt the hurt President Bush before an election. After that "October surprise" was thoroughly discredited Lancet is at it again, and again in October, and again in an election year, and again with a study about Iraqi civilian deaths - this time the study says 655,000 Iraqis have died.

This is a shameless attempt by a discredited "journal" to hurt Republicans before an election, and LGF has a post on how the editor of the magazine is a certified Moonbat with video of him at an anti-war rally in the UK where he is a star speaker.

For a little perspective the loony " Iraq Body Count" - which claims to accurately document the number of people killed as a result of the Iraq war - has the maximum number of "Civilians reported killed by military intervention in Iraq" at 48,693 (at the time of this post) and even that number is most likely grossly overblown.
