See? B.S.

Michael Fumento takes on the CBS veteran suicide crisis claim.

I noted another blogger's questioning of the value of comparing the statistics of a mostly male cohort and the general population and added my own question about whether there was any way to know if these were combat veterans or not.

Fumento raises these issues and adds a question on how the statistics were even gathered.

By all means, help suicidal veterans. But this issue is one of individual and family tragedies rather than a crisis that can be blamed on fighting in Iraq.

Those CBS guys know how to ride that fake-but-accurate horse long after Rather rode it into the ground.
