Why am I not surprised?
This is worse than the Reagan administration. Reagan and his band of merry men might have all but denied the existence of HIV and AIDS, but at least his two Directors of the CDC realised quickly what the world was up against. His Surgeon General also knew the magnitude of what they were dealing with even though his superiors prevented him from any public discussion of the disease during Reagan's first term. Thereafter, he took it on himself to ensure every household in America knew the dangers of HIV/AIDS. I will never forget flying into San Francisco around 1987, switching on the TV in my hotel room and seeing the bearded and imposing C. Everett Koop discussing the dangers of rimming!

Q/p-nid/87Through his report and his many speeches and interviews on AIDS Koop did more than any other public official to shift the terms of the public debate over AIDS from the moral politics of homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, and intravenous drug use, practices through which AIDS was spread, to concern with the medical care, economic position, and civil rights of AIDS sufferers.
