    The White House refused to consider the alternative, a travel ban from countries that had Ebola outbreaks. Josh Earnest told the press on October 1, after Duncan was diagnosed with the infection in Dallas, that the administration would not consider a temporary travel ban, and that the US could prevent a ďwide spread of Ebola.Ē Earnest also promised that the Centers for Disease Control would ďprotect the broader American public by rigorously applying the kind of medical protocolsĒ recommended by the CDC when the disease did appear. ďThese are the experts,Ē Earnest insisted.

    Even at that stage, no one communicated the proper protocols to the hospital staff, according to a union representative for the nurses. There were ďno protocolsĒ given to the nurses by the CDC or anyone else; they had to make up protocols as they went along, with toxic medical waste piling up to the ceiling. For the first two days, they didnít even have the proper hazmat suits needed for infectious-disease protection while caring for Duncan. Under those circumstances, the infection of two members of Duncanís care team should not surprise anyone. The first young nurse self-identified the infection and got herself into isolation over the weekend. The CDC confirmed it as an Ebola case on Sunday morning. By that time, the CDC had been monitoring dozens of people who had come into contact with Duncan as potential cases for contagion, and yet somehow one nurse had flown to Cleveland from Dallas on Friday.

    It doesnít take ďexpertsĒ to realize that high-risk potential cases of Ebola shouldnít board flights or use any other kind of public transportation, especially after a containment breach has been verified. Only after this information came out did CDC director Thomas Frieden announce that no other people being monitored would be allowed to board commercial aircraft. The experts never considered that an issue, apparently. Even after that, the CDC asked people on the flight to contact them, rather than getting the passenger manifest from the airline and tracking down the passengers themselves. These are people who may have been exposed and who could carry the infections further over the next several weeks.....snip~

    Due to all this.....BO says he wants a CDC Swat Team for Immediate response and hopefully less than 24 hrs. Frieden even admitted the CDC should have sent a Team once they knew Duncan was infected. Bo would not have to be saying this.....if Freiden had been handling this situation correctly with protocols.

    Its like amateur hour everywhere this President puts his nose. How is Freiden still working for the CDC?

    Sometime logic goes right out f-n the door in a "crisis".
    By the same logic the other response centers have been established, as well as our troops recently sent there-humanitarian and health concerns.

    They generally are not opposed when established, and if they weren't all over Africa, things like HIV would be even worse there today.

    Logic, never had a thing to do with this Presidency.

    I WISH this was a bubonic plague outbreak-much easier to treat and much more survivable.

    Similar conditions exist in west africa, any 3rd year medical student could figure that out. Perhaps its time to stop making excuses.

    You go on playing that platitude all you want. Meanwhile, the rest of us here in reality will keep trying to push common sense measures to keep Ebola out of the United States.

    Imagine taking the opportunity to actively mitigate the disease and kill Boko Haram at the same time.

    Alas, we have a chump in the white house and we know know chumps do.

    Jesse Jackson would accuse a hangnail of racism if it had any beneficial value to do so.

    Do you think Obama is going to hide behind those excuses?
