CDC Spokesman Admits Screening Inadequate, Won't Ban Flights From Liberia

October 2, 2014

CDC Spokesman Dave Daigle stated that the US would not be preventing flights from countries with massive outbreaks of the Ebola virus from coming in to the United States, despite seemingly admitting that the case of Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan showed that airport screening cannot catch every case of Ebola on CNN’s “OutFront” on Wednesday.   When asked whether he would recommend the US simply not allow flights from countries like Sierra Leone and Liberia, Daigle responded, “I don’t think so, and that’s certainly not, I’m not even sure if that’s a CDC call.”  He then said, “I think he [Duncan] got on the plane asymptomatic, without any symptoms whatsoever… the symptoms occurred after he landed or after he arrived in the US so it’s very difficult to prevent that. I mean the viruses don’t respect borders,” despite this admission that airport screening failed in this instance because the infected individual had no symptoms, and that people can carry Ebola into the US without showing any symptoms that would be noticed by a screener, Daigle again expressed confidence in the screening system and argued that a flight ban was unnecessary. Daigle was also asked about earlier reporting by

    The real story here is the failure of the authorities in Dallas – that’s our friends in TEXAS – to quickly deal with this guy. Now the reports are out that the medical people there are total wussies, refusing to treat the guy and go to the home he was visiting to collect used sheets and towels. Looks like Texas can talk big, but when it comes to actually DOING anything, they cut and run. And where’s Gov Rick “How’s My Hair Today” Perry when all of this is going down? MIA.

      See? This time you got a ‘down’, deservedly. Without dog ‘cookie’. Texas does not talk big, Texas DOES big: Perry ordered the Guard to keep the stray animals off our borders; the Texas Militia on its own IS guarding the border, teasing city cops, sheriff deputies, AND the Guard.

      WHILE all the zionist media whine about the “E-Bull-a” hullabaloo HOAX, it gets more and more ridiculous, these ziotic subversives running out of lies and scaremonga tricks. Jail for the wacky apes, anytime soon.

        Don’t you have a church to go to on Sunday?
        You didn’t read the news. Perry ordered the Guard to look for dead bodies. They don’t have enough to do, apparently. Not enough illegals to warrant their presence there. All a HOAX.

          Did ‘they’ shut the children’s matinee on Sunday for you? “for dead bodies”… ARF-ARF!! Which country you live in, no brains?? i read a newspaper FROM the border where the Texas Militia is guarding against illegal incursions, and both Perry and the cops are having a fit because the Militia is superimposing on their PRETENDED ‘protection’ of the border. Perry is a poster boy for the Bilderbergers, a pet toy for AIPAC, and a RINO, empty brains. Sieg-Heil!

            Lots of news organizations are carrying this story. Try reading one.

            Why read the zio-media if it is all contrived lies?
