In a 1992 article that was not published in an academic journal, Dr. Meryl Nass, a close associate of Hatfill-nemesis Dr. Barbara Hatch Rosenberg, cited "journalist Jeremy Brick hill" [sic], who has insisted that anonymous military contractors told him that the outbreak was a military attack by the multiracial Selous Scouts. The credibility of Brickhill, a self-described "antiapartheid activist" who claims to have fought on the side of the black rebels, is questionable. This reporter has not been able to find any record of massive, biowarfare-induced, cutaneous anthrax infections anywhere. ------"Scientist With Rhodesian Past Still Center of Media Crosshairs,"http://www.insightmag.com/main.cfm?include=detail&storyid=267517

The real interesting part is that Meryl Nass wrote her advocacy paper in 1992:
Let's look at the "Acknowledgments" section: "Thanks to........ Barbara Rosenberg, Ph.D........ for contacts and encouragement."In light of this it's always been my bet that as soon as Rosenberg heard the name "Hatfill" and "Zimbabwe" in the same sentence after the 2001 anthrax attacks, she had her man. 31 posted on 09/05/2003 5:20 AM PDT by Badabing Badaboom
Dr. Meryl Nass...a holistic medicine doc who claims to be a bioweapons expert. She came up with the claim that a Rhodesian cutaneous anthrax outbreak was weaponized, a claim evidently close to Rosenberg's heart.
She is a member of Physicians for Social Responsibility, a leftwing group which along with Voices in the Wilderness, helped sanctions-bust in Iraq.

She joined a pretentiously named empty shell front group composed of names that claim to be "honorary" SEALs and so on -- meaningless crap derived from their effort to get gov bucks for "Gulf War Syndrome" and the like:

She wouldn’t say she was a bioweapons expert. She’d say she was expert on reactions to vaccines. She is immensely likable IMO. Non-dogmatic on the Hatfill issues even if she had her opinion. She took down a RedFlags article when it proved unreliable. She never had met Dr. Hatfill. She called me once to excitedly pass on the rumored news about the cabin in the woods once and I asked her “What state?” She didn’t know. That was my first tip that the spread of the Hatfill Theory was on shaky grounds indeed. And so while her politics might be aligned with BHR, I think she certainly was acting in good faith. Of course, one doesn’t want to go down that slippery slope between falsely accusing one of murder to falsely accusing one of genocide. But contrast Meryl with Don Foster. Meryl stood down. Don Foster didn’t. He should have withdrawn the Vanity Fair article — even after being approved, in light of what had developed. That libel suit was inevitable as was the result. Libel law views favorably the person who adapts to new information, etc.
