Good morning James Dray -  I wonder is one of those drugs was AZT.  Things have certainly changed with that disease since the 80's.

Years ago I met a lady briefly at graduate school. She was from Iraq and had a veil on studying chemistry and microbiology.  What I did not know was after PhD studies she went back worked for the government. She became chief scientist of biological weapons confiscticated by George W Bush orderas part of the mobile concentrated anthrax and aflatoxin to be used on the ammo.  #53 criminal of the most wanted by Pentagon.

She rose to prominance in a wrong way as Sadam showed a meeting of scientists with Huda and Rihab on a video tape. Huda was a dean of University of Iraq at the time.  Somehow both scientists were released in 2005. They were no longer considered to be a threat.  To this date I think she was asked to be a consultant from academic side not directly involved with the production of the anthrax.
