The Lancet studies of mortality in Iraq, predictably released one month before an American national election and always giving a very large death toll much greater than other estimates, are nonetheless often quoted as gospel truth by those opposed to the war.

Hopefully this will change some things:

ABC News: Nondisclosure Cited in Iraq Casualties Study

In a highly unusual rebuke, the American Association for Public Opinion Research today said the author of a widely debated survey on "excess deaths" in Iraq had violated its code of professional ethics by refusing to disclose details of his work. The author's institution later disclosed to ABC News that it, too, is investigating the study.

AAPOR, in a statement, said that in an eight-month investigation, Gilbert Burnham, a faculty member at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, "repeatedly refused to make public essential facts about his research on civilian deaths in Iraq."
