Wow. If this is true, that is just a colossally short-sighted ploy on the CIA's part.

I heard that on NPR this morning. The doctor we used is under arrest and the charges carry the death penalty...

A good cause.  Sadly I think that there is a lack of political will in some countries (Nigeria springs to mind) to pursue this policy sufficiently whole-heartedly- polio should have been eradicated at the beginning of this decade.

As a member of Rotary, on the club's 105th birthday (2/23), I ask you, my fellow RP listeners, to donate just $1.05 each (or more) to the Rotary foundations end polio now campaign.

When Rotary began its eradication work, polio infected more than 350,000 children annually. In 2008, fewer than 2,000 cases were reported worldwide.

Rotary clubs also provide "sweat equity" on the ground in polio-affected communities, which helps ensure that leaders at all levels remain focused on the eradication goal. Over the years, Rotary club members have volunteered their time and personal resources to reach more than two billion children in 122 countries with the oral polio vaccine. Thanks to Rotary and its partners, the number of polio cases has been slashed by more than 99 percent, preventing five million instances of childhood paralysis and 250,000 deaths. But the polio cases represented by that final 1 percent will be the most difficult and expensive to prevent for a variety of reasons, including geographical isolation, worker fatigue, armed conflict, and cultural barriers.

That's why it's so important to generate the funding needed to finish the job. To ease up now would be to invite a polio resurgence that would condemn millions of children to lifelong paralysis in the years ahead. The bottom line is this: As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, all children - wherever they live - remain at risk.

Thanks Rp'ers!
