“Beginning in [October 1] 1984, the Centers for Disease Control began providing Saddam’s Iraq with biological materials–including viruses, retroviruses, bacteria, fungi, and even tissue that was infected with bubonic plague. Among the materials that were sent were several types of West Nile virus and plague-infected mouse tissue smears.”

 – Craig Unger, House of Bush, House of Saud, Pages 68-69
