"The Specter of Biological Weapons" in SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, Dec. 1996. Excerpt: "In 1980 only one country, the Soviet Union, had been named by the U.S. for violating the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention, a treaty that prohibits the development or possession of biological weapons.
Since then, the number has ballooned. In 1989 Central Intelligence Agency director William Webster reported that "at least 10 countries" were developing biological weapons. By 1995, 17 countries had been named as biological weapons suspects.... Reversing this trend should be of paramount concern to the community of nations.
Indeed, the elimination of biological as well as chemical weaponry is a worthy, if difficult goal. The failure of this effort may increase the likelihood of the development of a manmade plague from Ebola or some other gruesome agent."
