Why is it that the Pentagon is OK with U.S. soldiers being quarantined for 21 days in Italy, after returning from Ebola-stricken areas? Even Major General Darryl Williams, Commander of the U.S. Forces in Africa, is under quarantine. The Pentagon calls it “enhanced monitoring.”

Why can’t the same rules be applied to everyone else, in the U.S. homeland?

Yet, the government authorities in charge of protecting public health in the United States seem unable to come up with a concrete set of rules to deal with the quarantine of health-care workers returning from Ebola-stricken areas. If it is this confusing now– imagine what it would be like if we actually faced an epidemic of this disease in this country.

Meanwhile… where is Mr. Klain, the Ebola czar assigned by President Obama?

May God help us and protect us!
