Lancet Journal study of Iraq deaths debunked

Only days before the last Presidential election, a front page article in the Roanoke Times screamed that the invasion of Iraq may have caused hundreds of thousands of deaths. Salt Lick doesn't remember on what the RT based that headline (other than perhaps a desperate attempt to sway voters), but the study most often relied upon by the war's opponents, the one in the Lancet Journal has been debunked.

Just thought everyone would want to know.
