Briefly Noted

There are, according to this fairly sound Times (UK) article, persistent unanswered questions about the reliability of the so-called Lancet study finding of 650,000 excess deaths due to the war in Iraq.

UPDATE: Daniel Davies at Crooked Timber did the hard and thankless work of going through the article in some detail.

FINAL UPDATE: The UK government's experts thought that the study was methodologically reliable.
