Stephan Monroe, director of the C.D.C.s division of high-consequence pathogens and pathology, said the agency believed that infectious agents could be one of many possible triggers for the disease but that no pathogen had yet emerged as a primary cause.

Carefully worded so as to avoid raising any doubt about the CDC's presumptions that CFS is a maladaptive psychological response to a common infectious episode.

The more I hear this type of double speak, the harder it is not to wish this disease on someone like Mr. Monroe.
