I made it very clear that I was aware of alternative motivations for
research, and am perfectly aware of organ donor rejection issues,
not to mention multiple sclerosis, etc.    I reiterate the key point:
the motivations behind the research are ambiguous, as is often
the case for research that might have potential biological warfare
applications.

Are you going to try to tell me with a straight face, that the 1969 DOD
appropriations request for $10 million, to develop new viruses
"refractory to the immune system", would cause you no suspicion
whatever, if you were in our shoes?

That is the unfortunate thing here- it is a pity that we have a government
where one party routinely panders to what are essentially hate groups.

We are hypothesizing a situation where there is no law.  As an
oppressed minority, we take it upon ourselves to become the
jury, and make our own judgments.    Juries are not composed
of experts on any given subject.   Your job is to persuade as best
you can.
