When the Lancet study first came out, I argued that conservatives couldn’t just criticize–they had to offer their own alternative, credible numbers for the civilian death toll. Matt Yglesias goes one further: why not a second study using credible methods of which conservatives approve?

    Les Roberts had a simple suggestion, which he addressed to the press corps: visit a sample of graveyards and check how many bodies were buried each year. So far, no journalist has shown much enthusiasm.
