When the gay activists at AIDSTruth attacked me for exposing alleged HIV co-discoverer Robert Gallo MD as a fraud and the AIDS drug Sustiva (Efavirenz) as a highly addictive hypnotic drug that produces AIDS-like symptoms when stopped, I wrote:
… when I visited Tony Fauci’s website today a survey appeared asking me if there was any way I could improve the service at NIH. I asked them to send me a PDF of the report that shows exactly who, when, where, and how HIV was proven to cause AIDS. As the director of infectious disease, Fauci should be able to send me something. If you think I’m making this up, ask him yourself.
At least one reader took me up on the challenge:
Feedback from: Joe Stokely
Can you please send me the document that shows who, when, where, and how HIV was proven to cause AIDS?
Twelve hours later, an unnamed bureaucrat replied:
This is in reply to your inquiry dated June 15, 2009, to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), National Institutes of Health (NIH), concerning HIV as the cause of AIDS.
We believe the overwhelming evidence provides testimony to the role of HIV in AIDS. You may wish to review the NIAID documents related to HIV as the cause of AIDS. An overview is presented at http://www3.niaid.nih.gov/topics/HIVAIDS/Understanding/How+HIV+Causes+AIDS/connection.htm, with a link to additional information at the bottom of that Web page.Additional information can be found at the independent Website http://www.aidstruth.org/.
We hope that this information is helpful.

Instead of producing the evidence requested, the response sounded much more like the Nicene Creed:
We believe the overwhelming evidence provides testimony to the role of HIV in AIDS.
If the evidence is overwhelming, one would assume that proof exists that HIV attacks cells and causes AIDS. The fact that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) would supplement “their evidence” with a link to these pharmaceutically-funded South African gay activist groups is also telling. If the National Institutes of Health cannot provide direct evidence of how scientists PROVED that HIV attacks cells and causes AIDS, their BELIEF is nothing more than theology. I invite others to ask the NIH for proof as Mr. Stokely did.
