    Are those foreign airports collaborating with us? If so, how?

    Uhm the Saudi placed a travel ban in effect.....that means they aren't really letting anyone in from those infected countries. So they aren't really trying to find out who is infected. But that don't mean they wont be on the lookout.

    Going into or traveling there.....is a different story.

    The Chinese did put people and supplies on the ground in the infected countries.

    I know the ends justifies the means for many people, but seriously...some of us give a damn about consistency here.

    If in 2008 Obama had just blindly went along with the CDC's recommendations and put forward support for funding of 18 new "health centers" all over the world he'd likely have been tore a new one, understandably so, for reckless spending within the beuacracy. Especially considering agencies are notorious for over estimating in their recommendations since it's a near given that the full recommendation will be scaled back.

    Sorry, but I'm not going to harp on Obama for not doing something I likely would've had an issue with him doing at the time simply due to hindsight. Especially since it's parent cabinet department, Health and Human Services, is one of the most routinely pointed to departments that Republican candidates and politicians and supporters have pointed at as being a prime candidate to be scaled back and cut in terms of funding.

    Sorry, on this case I just see nothing to get up in arms about.
    Normally I would agree with you about bureaucratic spending but in this case, I would not mind overspending. Whatever they asked for they should have been given imo.

    They didn't say they would be working with the us or those in the west. Moreover the Medical people in Liberia are threatening to go on strike if they are not given more money and the equipment they want. Half of the medical people working at the source. Have died.

    And many more might die but that is the risk that we must take in order to stop ebola.

    The CDC just issued a "Ebola Alert " for New York.

    Supposedly there are CARRIERS that are expected to travel into New York City.

    How is that possible ? They're STILL allowing people to travel in from Ebola ravaged Nations and now they're issuing "warnings" ??

    This is not a disease that had ever struck West Africa before and nobody could have predicted an outbreak like this, at no point in modern history has a Level 4 pathogen infected so many people so quickly across such a large geographical area, its simply unprecedented.
    The CDC predicted this, over 6 years ago. They even recommended to Obama that he take an active part in the health of Africa-kinda like Bush had done. Its our Presidents job to be prepared for the unprecedented, and to act competently when something is encountered. Obama has done neither.
    Obama did not act-but what his petty little party just tried to do (blame the outbreak on sequestration) hints at their deseparation.

    Even now, why aren't heads rolling at the CDC and new leaders put into place? Because Obama is an incompetent chump-thats why.
