New scam?

From the UK Guardian:

HIV and Aids scientists and advisers on both sides of the Atlantic urged caution yesterday over suggestions that a new fast-acting strain of the HIV virus resistant to most anti-retroviral drugs had emerged in New York.

Health officials in New York suggested that a man in his 40s, who reported multiple sex partners and unprotected anal intercourse, often under the influence the amphetamine crystal meth, might be the harbinger of an aggressive form of the disease which can normally take eight to 10 years or more to develop.

Thomas Friedman, the city's health commissioner, said on Friday the strain might be "difficult or impossible to treat".

The unnamed man was only diagnosed with HIV in December, after complaining of feeling ill in November. He had reported tested negative in May 2003, but is now said to be displaying full-blown Aids, suggesting the disease took from two to 20 months to progress.

The 8 to 10 years things was only “established” after people who were tested positive for HIV, failed to develop symptoms. That they developed symptoms only after taking the medicine prescribed, didn't register with these bone-head doctors that the medicine itself was what was making the patients sick.

This guy sounds like the very first AIDS cases (back then it was called WOGS or “Wrath of God Syndrome” because it struck only hard-line drug users or extremely promiscuous homosexuals.) Drug use pretty much ravages your immune system, and the extreme of promiscuous homosexuals frequently use drug (like amyl nitrate) to “enhance” the experience, resulting in a severely compromised immune system. None of which would have anything to do with some mythical disease concocted by the CDC to justify their funding.
