    “They don’t need the whole suit – as such – because they’re not going to be in contact with any of the people,” the commander of U.S. troops in Africa said.

    Soldiers from the 101st Airborne will primarily be building hospitals, ultimately leading what could be a contingent of 4,000 American service members. They’ll be housed either in tent cities at military airfields or in Liberian Ministry of Defense facilities, Rodriguez said.

    Since they will not be coming into contact with patients, or the general public, they don't need hazmat suits.

    If they were wearing the suits all the time, they would get heat stroke

    They wouldn't be clad in in the suits around the clock.

    They're not properly equipped to operate in a disease hot zone.

    From the article:

    “They don’t need the whole suit – as such – because they’re not going to be in contact with any of the people,” the commander of U.S. troops in Africa said.

    Soldiers from the 101st Airborne will primarily be building hospitals, ultimately leading what could be a contingent of 4,000 American service members. They’ll be housed either in tent cities at military airfields or in Liberian Ministry of Defense facilities, Rodriguez said.
    So as a351 said...

    Unless there was a Republican in the White House. Then, the president would be required to actually take responsibility for ordering troop deployments. Since Obama is a dud, he can't possibly be held responsibility for his decisiobs.

    They don't have the proper training and equipment. They're receiving 4 hours of training and no PPE.

    Retreating to the "If a Republican were in the White House..." argument every time your back is against the wall is just silly. Just admit you didn't read past the headline.
