Leslie Burger, Rep. NormDicks, D-Washington, and officials from the White House, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Veterans' Administration, the Army and the Department of Defense.
Dicks said that it is important for the government researchers to look at outside studies if they want to get to the bottom of the mystery.
Dicks said the military has "very limited capability to detect biological weapons" and the equipment used in the Gulf was "very primitive." He said that government researchers have agreed to conduct "a protocol" on Nicolson's study beginning next month.
NORMDICKS: This is the officials who are trying to put this program into place and the people from the FBI who were given the responsibility were not given direct access to the Secretary of Energy's office.
NORMDICKS: Well, I think what we do is take the recommendations that we've made in our report - President Clinton - I met with him with Chris - and he has said that he will implement the recommendations from our report.
NORMDICKS: Jim, on this subject I believe Secretary Richardson has already said he is doing a disciplinary review in the Department of Energy.
