Les Roberts thinks that critics who question his studies are the same as those who deny that 3,000 people died on 9/11. Really.

And another thought is that -- quite unrelated -- if someone said in the 9/11 attacks, “I think only 200 or 300 people really died,” we would be really, really upset. And I think in the long view, the danger of discarding this study, if it’s correct, is that, at a moment when we as a society should be showing contrition, our leaders have essentially expressed indifference to an extraordinary level of suffering. And that’s just the wrong message in terms of either our long-term security or peace in the Middle East.

Is this better or worse than his other analogy of Lancet critics as Holocaust deniers?
