Intercepted memo to George H. W. Bush

On Magic Johnson's fiftieth anniversary a secret CIA document was made public for the first time.  It states as follows:

CIA:  Mr. President, a famous person just contracted HIV.

Bush:  What criteria does he meet?

CIA:  Well, he's not gay, and he doesn't inject drugs with needles, but he is a black man.

Bush:  Your third fact makes this a little more difficult, but because he passes two of the three criteria I say give him the cure.  But swear him to secracy and make him promise never to play basketball again.

CIA:  To hear is to obey.
