Possibly the item least thought out by Dr. Frieden, director of the CDC, and the Obama administration, is their absolute refusal to halt flights incoming to the U.S. from West Africa. This simple, common sense effort would be an obvious step among others, to possibly keep the Ebola disease out of America, but the smart set in Washington wouldn’t even consider it. So much for taking every precaution to protect the citizens of this nation by all means possible. Now they state that they will “rethink” the entire Ebola treatment/response process, two weeks after the first case hit our shores and three weeks after Obama and Frieden assured us that they had the process down to a science, that there was no way to contract the disease easily (they never even considered that the disease may mutate and become an airborne threat) and that keeping the disease out of America was a certainty. Now we find that both of these government employees were wrong. Maybe that will make the people suffering from the disease feel better.
Another bit of non-thought by our supreme leader is his decision to send U.S. troops to Africa for whatever stupid reason. These troops were recently told by their brave commander-in-chief that they would absolutely not be sent to fight ISIS in Iraq or Syria (which fight is exactly why they volunteered for the military in the first place) and they now learn that they will be sent to serve in Africa as part of the Ebola effort, where it’s assured that some or all of them will become infected by the disease and not be able to fight for America’s protection at all.
The stupidity of the current administration is infinite, dangerous to America’s health and growing rapidly.
