For ages now, anti-war activists have argued that the infamous Lancet study "proved" that America was responsible for over half a million Iraq deaths in the Iraq War. Well, some new info has come out as to who funded that little study. Anti-War Billionaire George Soros Funded Iraq Study. SHOCKING - a study funded by an anti-war zealot just so happens to show, by an exponentially large margin, more Iraqi deaths than pretty much any other comparable research. Good to see this disgusting little piece of propaganda lose what tiny shred of credibility it had left.
