ABSTRACT
The author comments on the U.S. government's attempt to belittle a study which estimated that 655,000 Iraqis have died as a direct or indirect result of the war that started in 2003. U.S. President George W. Bush's administration questioned the credibility of the study, while critics attacked the methodology used by the researchers. The author argues that the authorities and the public will stop treating the body counts as mere statistics by putting faces and names to the numbers.
