Re: Re: Questions to Nicholas Bennett and Peter Flegg

In his rapid response: "Re: "HIV" is not sufficient nor necessary for KS", 8 September, Christopher Noble wrote: "Nobody is saying that HIV infection is a necessary or sufficient cause of any of the AIDS indicator opportunistic infections or malignancies".

Chris Noble has previously attempted to correct the Perth Group misunderstandings on this issue with perfect clarity. Why they continue to misquote him as saying "HIV is not necessary for AIDS" when he actually says something quite different (see 1st para above) escapes me. Realisation of this renders their questions redundant.
