George Soro's behind the funding for the Lancet Study-----Who's surprised?

From the Times Online:

"Professor John Tirman of MIT said this weekend that $46,000 (£23,000) of the approximate £50,000 cost of the study had come from Soros’s Open Society Institute."

New figures---- 151,000 Iraqi's killed since invasion instead of 655,000

GatewayPundit is reporting the anit-military anti-Bush billionare funded the now defunct study.

From the National Journal:

Queried in the Rose Garden on October 11, the day the Lancet article came out, Bush dismissed it. "I don't consider it a credible report," he replied. The Pentagon and top British government officials also rejected the study's findings.

Such skepticism would not prove to be the rule.

CBS News called the report a "new and stunning measure of the havoc the American invasion unleashed in Iraq." CNN began its report this way: "War has wiped out about 655,000 Iraqis, or more than 500 people a day, since the U.S.-led invasion, a new study reports." Within a week, the study had been featured in 25 news shows and 188 articles in U.S. newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times.


How is it that a nation with 21st century technology when it comes to information and verification allowed this garbage to go unchecked and unchallenged by most of the mainstream media, while the skeptics remained silent or silenced by ridicule? Will we see these "institutional" news papers and online news media report that the people were lied to? Where will the admission of fabrication be recorded in historical events of our time? George Soros and his money should be banned from participating in any political function in this hemisphere. Better yet, just put his name on the terrorist watch list and exile the man to the mountains of Pakistan.
