    Other than blaming somebody else, the question should be what do we do now?
    That has been constantly discussed in this thread. Start by CLOSING travel from those regions.

    How is that possible ? They're STILL allowing people to travel in from Ebola ravaged Nations and now they're issuing "warnings" ??
    If the President now restricts travel-his incompetence is exposed-so he wont do it.

    NYC is always an infectious disease portal due to the large number of travelers from the world. Ebola Nigeria by spreading into its largest city, which has a population density comparable to NYC. Suffice to say its a HORRIBLE place for a pandemic to go, as it could rapidly spread.

    Yes, thats true. The problem is that blood tests take time and the tests themselves require equipment, and this is africa.

    I was responding to Zylphin's post concerning what Barry did or didn't in 2008 after the alert.

    No way, no how do I think not closing the borders after the outbreak was a good idea.

    There is another concern that I have not seen mentioned. Liberia and other affected countries have no medical facilities. Is it not reasonable to assume that those in those countries that are infected and have the means will not fly to the US to get treatment?

    If we take them, which we should not. Treat them there, we can't take in a continent over this, nor should we.

    The Centers for Disease Control told the incoming Obama administration in 2008 that it should establish 18 regional disease detection centers around the world to adequately safeguard the U.S. from emerging health threats like Ebola, according to an agency memo.

    But six years later, as the government struggles to contain the fallout from a deadly Ebola outbreak at home and abroad, the CDC still has only 10 centers — and none of them operates in the western Africa region hardest hit by the deadly virus.

    Well if the Washington Times says its so then...

    Great source there champ! I mean it was founded by the 2nd coming of Christ Sun Myung Moon and all. It has to be true.

    Just let us know when the GOP decides to stop filibustering Surgeon General nominations so we can actually have one.

    Brilliant.
    Indeed.

    As with any viral outbreak, Ebola, measles, chickenpox, whatever, containment of the virus until it is no longer transmissible is the only reasonable course of action.

    I fail to understand why such a simple fact escapes so many. When you were a child, and contacted chickenpox, did you mother send you off to school to infect the other children?

    No, she kept you home until you were no longer contagious. Same principal here, just with bigger group of people and world wide, given modern air travel.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    The left is paralyzed by logic and reason. Its why they can't say anything-it throws a wrench in the gears of liberal ideology.
