Not Confirming Lancet Nonsense
[Soldier's Dad]
AFP is touting a new study claiming even more Iraqi Deaths than the infamous Lancet Study here.

Quote
LONDON (AFP) - More than one million Iraqis have died because of the war in Iraq since the US-led invasion of the country in 2003, research published Wednesday showed. According to data compiled by the Opinion Research Business (ORB) and its research partner the Independent Institute for Administration and Civil Society Studies


Only one problem...the Independent Institute for Administration and Civil Society Studies was the "Research Partner" for the Lancet Study as explained here

Confirmation doesn't generally mean asking the same person the same question twice. There used to be a rule in journalism that one something wasn't true unless two different people confirmed the facts.

New rules...two different people...quoting the same person...makes something true.

According to the Bible, "know" means "yes."
