Scare scenarios, Stanley Cohen

Interviewee: Stanley Cohen
Later in the meeting there was a lot of speculation and there were all kinds of scenarios that were raised by attorneys and others, most of whom really hadn't looked very carefully about basic biological issues such as selective pressure or lack of selective pressure. And there were scare scenarios that were put forth, and these were immediately picked up by the Press.
