Pres. Obama came out today to tell us just how unfair it is to the volunteers who treat Ebola to quarantine them upon their return. Somewhere along the way, they deserve the benefit of the doubt.
The military, who the Obama administration says will not be treating Ebola victims must have a 21 day quarantine, but the people who actually treat Ebola victims must not be stigmatized by such an indignity. Where is the Ebola Czar and what does he think?

Many question the Obama administration and their response to suspending flights from countries with rampant Ebola. They say it won’t help and that it will make it harder to get the epidemic under control. There are arguments on both sides of this issue. Then lots of balls were dropped in Dallas, the nation realizes a lot of the risk.
This will have to get a lot worse than it currently is to get the Obama administration to profile black people from Africa. The administration cannot be seen to be throwing out only black people while letting white missionaries and cameramen come home to America for treatment. Remember, profiling is a big “NO NO” for liberal Dems, Ben Affleck, and Obama. The congressional black caucus would begin to talk of the sick and dead slaves thrown off the slave ships and some quaint tale of schools of sharks still following boats now for a tender morsel of an African slave.
I don’t know what the answer is, but I don’t trust Obama to do the right thing for the right reason.

It was a bit comical last night to see Jen Psaki (State Department Spokeswoman) being interviewed by Megyn Kelly last night. Megyn was asking about the bombshell from Leon Panetta about why Obama left Iraq against lots of advice not to. Jen Psaki kept saying that leaving 10,000 wouldn’t have been able to keep Iraq stable and free of ISIS/ISIL. Kept repeating that many troops would have been ineffective. The Pentagon wanted to leave behind 24000 troops and Maliki turned down Obama’s offer of 5000 troops left in Iraq. This is at the very same time that the Obama administration announces a Status of Forces agreement with Afghanistan of less than 10,000 troops.
So Obama left Iraq because of politics according to Panetta. He didn’t try very hard to leave forces in Iraq even though he and Hillary had lots of leverage. But Obama now thinks less than 10,000 can stay behind in Afghanistan and keep his “good war” gains in place. Jen Psaki also praised John Kerry’s brilliant effort in securing a less than 10,000 troops agreement. Jen Psaki kept telling Megyn that even the surge of troops was unable to contain Al Qaeda. How exactly did the story change during late 2011 that Al Qaeda was decimated. Lots of different stories out of this administration.
