    Maybe better protective gear is needed?

    CDC and Texas health officials said the nurse who became infected had been wearing the recommended personal protective gear for Ebola, which consists of gloves, a gown, a mask, and a shield to protect the eyes from possible splatters from the patient. According to experts, that gear offers the minimum level of protection. When an Ebola patient enters the latter stages of the disease, as Duncan did, they become so-called fluid producers. Towards of end of the illness, the virus is trying to live and thrive. It's trying to get out of the person's body. It's producing massive amounts of fluid. At that point, caregivers need to add more layers of protective gear, such as double gloves and a respirator or a full bodysuit. Those kinds of decisions need to be made by managers who are constantly assessing the risk to healthcare workers.

    Reuters
    Many healthcare specialists also recommended that only the National Institutes of Health in Maryland, Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and St. Patrick Hospital in Montana treat Ebola positive patients because these facilities possess special high-containment isolation units.

    Given that they were told "Don't touch the locals", the government's indication that they "won't be in direct contact" with the sick is laughable.

    On the other hand it is very easy to disallow people who have been in ebola country from coming to the US.

    How does aid get there without flights or people to bring in the supplies? If a plane lands there with supplies, does it have to stay there till the crisis is over? So all trips are one way? If not, then how do you isolate the plane carrying supplies from everyone? Drop the supplies with parachutes - an air lift?
    This is not America's problem. You are free to get help into the country in any way you choose. You should not be free to return to the US if you have been to ebola country recently.

    And you've mentioned a few countries. Those folks can't get in a car and drive to another country? Should the U.S. ground ALL all flights/trains/roads/boats in and out? If you want them isolated by force, who will do that? Not the countries themselves - they don't have the manpower.
    If people lie to get in then widen the ban. And sue churches who provide the money to bring the ebola-exposed to this country.

    Etc. It's not anything close to an easy decision to make, and once you make it carrying through will take massive amounts of manpower to enforce.
    It is very easy and would require no additional manpower. The president, perhaps between rounds of golf can do as he did for the beheading and take a ten minute break in his game to tell State to disallow visas.

    "The One will commit troops where we have no national interest but will not commit troops when it is in our national interest.

    Think of it. The troops are coming from all over the US. When they return they will return to all over the US.
    Those poor guys. I would not serve under Eboma."

    You have asked the wrong question. The two right questions you should ask are, 1) what is wrong with him, 2) and what is wrong with you? Is The One an object of veneration for you?

    Perhaps, after your name calling session is over, you or Jetboogie can explain what America's national interest is for the ebola countries? I am sure you both can as you are completely sure of yourselves.

    I will log on later to check.

    What should be clear is that occasionally people lie. Let them lie in ebola country.

    If that is the case, then what I originally suspected, which was that we were being lied to, on several governmental levels, was true.
