(Apparent sycophancy to Washington's power allows this discrediting of 
AIDS activists by two who should know - and do - better. It was 
published originally in the /Washington Post /last week: "Just 15 years 
ago, Western experts said confidently that there was little that rich 
countries could do to stop the global AIDS crisis, which was killing 
millions of people in Africa and elsewhere. Today, thanks to leadership 
and advocacy from President George W. Bush, a bipartisan coalition of 
members in Congress, courageous faith-based organizations and U.S. 
government researchers such as Tony Fauci and Mark Dybul, more than 10 
million Africans are getting lifesaving treatment.")
