GUESTS: RONALD BAYER Professor in Columbia University's school of Public Health. BRENDA WILSON NPR Science Correspondent South African President Thabo Mbeki recently infuriated the scientific community by suggesting that HIV may not cause AIDS.

Join Juan Williams and guests to discuss how the world should deal with the African AIDS crisis.
