Reuters: Study sees 655,000 Iraqi war deaths; Bush disputes

Say what? Where did they get these numbers?

PajamasMedia is blowing the whistle on a public health study that claims there have been 655,000 Iraqi war deaths to date. This number is nearly 13 times larger than previous estimates. The figures were based on a survey conducted by Johns Hopkins and Al Mustansiriya University in Baghdad and have been published in The Lancelot, a medical journal. Ironically, the study comes at the height of midterm campaign season and has already been disputed by the Bush administration. Richard Miniter joins me Friday with details.
