    Does anyone believe the statements about their ability to control this?

    Smells like classic downplay.

    They actually caused some of the spread of the disease.

    Someone called Rush today and said that the airplane involved should be called the Ebola Gay. :laugh:

    Considering this disease has been stopped in third world countries in the past and "patient zero's" family still hasn't gotten it, I don't believe that the "CDC caused some of the spread of the disease" (just how did they do that?) or that it will be an epidemic here in the US.

    So yes, I believe that we can control this disease.

    They could have restricted the ability of West Africans to enter the country.

    They did not have a proper protocol for treatment since two nurses are sick.

    They apparently allowed the one nurse to fly and then said that she should not have flown and blamed her for what they themselves allowed.

    CDC Fails Again. Are you Surprised? I Bet we Both aren't.

    "Of course, I would be more apt to believe in the existence of Santa Claus than I would be to believe in the competence of any federal government agency. Now it has been revealed by the Dallas health care staff themselves that the alleged “protocols” that CDC said the first Ebola-stricken health care worker had supposedly ”violated”, in fact, did not exist. What? You mean the CDC might have been covering their six with falsehoods and finger-pointing? That, perhaps, CDC actually doesn’t know how the health care worker caught Ebola from the original carrier Duncan? And also that CDC dropped the ball and was not prepared for this after months of advance warning to be prepared? The truth is, CDC is typical of federal government agencies."
