I just have a question. How would the CAA even be able to speculate when the NIH study will be out when no one else apparently knows. They also seemed to gain inside information when the study was initially held up. So where do they seem to be getting all this info? The CDC or HHS or the NIH. Maybe they could just tell us the date and give us the information that was in the original paper, since they seem to know so much already.
I'm pretty sure that many doctors currently involved in research know more than they can share. If the CAA released information they had been asked to keep confidential, it would absolutely be the last time they received any such information (and having access to information not generally in circulation provides them an opportunity to evaluate the present direction of their efforts without having to wait for a paper to be published to do so).
Lots of contradictory forces at play - And yes, that specific part is a frequent component of science as usual.
