Ho(y)la folks

I'd appreciate it if anyone happens to have, and could send me, a source for the claim or suggestion by Sir Fred Hoyle that AIDS is a military designed virus that either escaped or was released intentionally. This is a silly idea, but I'd like to be sure that Hoyle *did* actually utter it before I say so print. (I've done a quick Altavista search and got nothing relevant.)
