    So they should not be allowed to bring a jet over here with any passengers from those countries, thru ANY connecting airlines until they are quarantined THERE for the necessary period.

    This is the reality. In *practice?* Good luck.
    You're just confirming that our government does not have the will to protect it's people.

    Looks like you were correct. Now the News and experts are asking, why the US gov't even allows people and flights from the Ebola hit regions, without making them wait for 21 days.

    It looks like they've severely underestimated the spread and danger of Ebola. The CDC and gov't are trying to get their arms around this but they still won't restrict flights from Africa, or people who've even there recently. Doesn't seem very prudent to me?
