It appears as if Rob Sweeney <> commented:

It would seem probably that the ``quote'' originated from inside the United
States immune system. Maybe it started as a ``off the record'' comment by
some official, and was finally expanded into an ``official quote'' by Rumour,
the wellknown ventriloquist?
