Long time readers will be familiar with the epic that is Michael Fumento’s attempt to debunk the first Lancet survey. A summary can’t really do it justice, but what basically happened is that Fumento dismissed the 100,000 number because he claimed that they included Falluja when they should have left it out. When I explained that they had left Falluja out, rather than admit to making a mistake, Fumento repeatedly and loudly insisted that the 100,000 number came from including Falluja. Now he’s claiming to be vindicated by David Kane’s critique. Kane, of course, is arguing that the Lancet authors should not have excluded Falluja.
Fumento mockery has been outsourced to Gavin M at Sadly, No!.
