Chris Matthews, of all people, is questioning our president’s assurances that it was unlikely that we would have a case of Ebola originating here in the United States … see: Real Clear Politics. Now we have … and Obama’s acolytes (like Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel) are still assuring us that everything is contained and will be OK. I do hope so and am somewhat inclined to give the president the benefit of the doubt.
However, I have less confidence that, once the thousands of our military personnel are returning ... who we have sent to the west of Africa ... that things will be still be so rosy. Another eminent doctor, Dr. Benjamin Carson, has expressed doubt that we are handling this potential major epidemic correctly … see: Breitbart Story.
British Airways has shut down all flights in and out of these Ebola infected countries in Africa through the end of the year … see: Washington Examiner Story . I do wish that our president would step up and explain why we haven’t done the same thing.
