    It doesn't look to be that difficult for direct flights - but I'd like to see connecting flights ban people from hot spots in West Africa as well. If they have a Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia or Nigeria passport/visa - no entry. Of course this would be temporary until the Ebola outbreak is contained and controlled.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.Ē - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I saw that. Ebola is not new. Do WHO and UNICEF have a history of inept reporting on Ebola?

    I wouldn't know if their reporting was inept.....but the World Health Organization has been putting out reports long before the MS media here was picking it up on every channel and with most news agencies.

    How that guy at the CDC got in charge I have no idea but god, he is just plain stupid. I know for a fact they have at Ft. Dietrich plans for controlling outbreaks, if the CDC doesn't have their own which I doubt highly. Why they are not being executed I have no idea. You don't play games with this kind of **** and the people that developed the serum from the tobacco plants needs to have the full resources of the US government available to speed up the research development and deployment.

    "Some health officials..."

    Are those the same "health officials" who said Ebola would never make it to the US?
    Are those the same "health officials" who said American hospitals were ready to tackle Ebola should it come into the US?

    And yet none of what he said was an argument for keeping the US safe, plus his argument is disingenuous in that he's saying we're arguing for "isolating" Africa and not allow people to go to Africa to help. I haven't seen anyone say that.

    From Ed Morrissey.

    To Contain Ebola, Obama Must Impose a West-African Travel Ban.....

    The last thing this administration needed was another crisis. In an election cycle that features few issues other than Obama’s own policies – as the President himself helpfully admitted last week – another bungled response would only make the leadership deficit more acute. The emergence of Ebola in Dallas, Texas, and the CDC’s failure to control the situation, has added yet another brick to the load weighing down Democrats in this cycle.

    None of this instills confidence in this administration’s ability to deal with one single outbreak point. What happens when more come? The Washington Post/ABC News poll shows that two-thirds of Americans want a ban on travel from Ebola-linked countries until the outbreak subsides, and it’s not difficult to understand why. With just one case, we have two transmissions and potentially over 200 more, thanks to a slow response from the healthcare center and the CDC’s inability to keep a monitored high-risk case from boarding a commercial flight to Cleveland and back. The White House insisted yesterday that no such travel ban would be forthcoming, but the crisis has rattled Obama enough to cancel a fundraising trip and stick around for a Cabinet meeting. Right now, the crisis is still very manageable, but only as long as they can contain the Dallas outbreak and hope another plane with visitors from western Africa does not bring another Patient Zero to America. Obama and his advisers should consider a travel ban as a necessary first step to prevent that – and perhaps to restore a little bit of confidence in their leadership......snip~
