The deadly Ebola virus has killed 14 people in western Uganda this month, Ugandan health officials said on Saturday, ending weeks of speculation about the cause of a strange disease that had many people fleeing their homes.

The worst of the worst right there - that is one scary pathogen.

Why Obama is sending troops to Africa – a closer look - Mon, Oct 31, 2011

In the current US AFRICOM operation, 100 Special Operations troops will travel with Ugandan People’s Defense Force (UPDF) soldiers trailing LRA leader Joseph Kony.
US to 'share lessons learned'

And the Russian Times reports:


Thousands more US troops to be sent to Africa
June 13, 2012


The Army Times confirms that the US military gave the go-ahead for the mass deployment last month and that roughly 3,000 soldiers will soon be sent overseas, with more troops expected to be dispatched during the duration of the program. Maj. Gen. David R. Hogg, head of US Army Africa, says the initiative is part of a “regionally aligned force concept” that will allow American troops to forge relationships across Africa, where the US has not concentrated its soldiers among civilians to the same degree as other continents.

Thank goodness Russia has a free press or we would never have a clue what is going on in the good ol USA.

I dunno.  Seems reckless doesn't it?  I wouldn't want to go without full NBC gear!  But like Stymie or REMFs give a rip.  As usual the troops get screwed, and in this case screwed could mean dead.  Totally unacceptable.  This has disaster written all over it.  I can see grieving family members suing for wrongful death.  Obama & Co spent ZERO time thinking this over, all they saw were black people and political points.  We have ZERO point being there.  Let WHO handle it.

Contagion is probably the most likely method if they wish to kill a lot of us, but Ebola might not be the right one. Typically you will see symptoms within 10 days - longest observed incubation was 21 days.   Of course a genetic variant may have been developed that takes longer, giving it ample time to to spread before word gets out that there is an outbreak.  Granted, you could get a 12 Monkeys scenario where someone deliberately contracts the disease and then takes a 10-21 day trip through as many airports and destinations as possible. Even so, you can only really spread it by direct contact.  An airborne contagion will spread far more quickly.

WH: no additional precautions against Ebola for African summit in DC
« Reply #11 on: July 30, 2014, 05:00:38 AM »
Leaders and government officials from Liberia as well as the other nations affected by Ebola—Guinea, Sierra Leone and Nigeria are expected to attend the D.C. summit.

Quote
... The Obama administration is urging federal employees to stay home during the summit of African leaders being held in Washington, D.C. next week and to monitor local news for announcement of a possible “closing of the federal government” —ostensibly over traffic issues.

... “Agencies should consider encouraging employees who can be spared from their duties to request to adjust their work schedules,” Katherine Archuleta, the director of the Office of Personnel Management, wrote Friday in a memo.”

…”Ms. Archuleta wrote that for now the federal government would remain open Monday through Thursday next week, but she advised federal employees to monitor local news outlets for announcements about potential street closings, disruptions to public transportation or a closing of the federal government.”


At the same time the administration said the federal government is taking no “additional precautions” to deal with the potential spread of the Ebola virus by those attending the summit.

... The White House downplaying of the Ebola threat contradicted State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki who said Monday about the summit, “…we’re taking every precaution…”

CDC Level 3 Travel Alert



http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-07-31/cdc-issues-level-3-travel-alert-largest-ebola-outbreak-history-spreads

Yet, didn't I hear somewhere that a couple infected types got OK to travel here for treatment?

Alert ain't worth squat but propaganda value if we're not quarantining incoming!   ::facepalm::

It is said that they are associated with Franklin Graham's organization, Samaritan's Purse. Further, one of them, a doctor, had access to a single dose of an experimental treatment for ebola but elected to give it to the other American, a nurse. Both are said to be in stable but grave condition. Also said to be traveling in a specially designed plane to prevent disease transmission. Also said to be going into immediate isolation/quarantine upon arrival.

They will probably not survive, unfortunately.
In a doomsday scenario, hippies will be among the first casualties. So not everything about doomsday will be bad.

Unh hunh ........

Quote
The statement, even though not specific, is the closest to a statement of preparedness made by the Obama administration. Various spokesmen have sought to downplay the potential for Ebola to be brought to the summit via West African government officials and members of their entourages.

The statement by the unnamed State Department official contradicts State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf’s flat declaration earlier Thursday at the daily briefing that the administration has no concern about Ebola being brought to the summit:

So why are they allowing "visitors with health-related issues" in here?
