What are US bio-war researchers doing in the Ebola zone?
« on: August 03, 2014, 06:08:57 AM »
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Really?? Come on..
To Clear things up...

Mueller has been one of the most respected individuals on the planet over the last 20 years.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

Get it!!!!

Did you forget your 'sarcasm; tag?   Or, are you also asking the question in the title?

I think I'd want experts there to try to figure out if the strain commonly found in the victims may have been genetically modified or perhaps even created in a lab.   Also, to try and find a perfect 'host' in which to obtain a serum to treat victims.

True, that is what I get from the title... However, a terrorist can use this disease as a weapon or some eco terrorist..

......allowing the contaminated doctor to literally walk himself into Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, without law enforcement escort or other safety precautions?

In answer to the title: Their jobs. You'll note - different article, posted on here - they are also sending an entomologist. Betting they are studying the possibilities of transmission by biting flies or mosquitoes, as well as the effectiveness of the vaccines. The FDA put a hold on human testing of one - that can be lifted on humanitarian grounds. It's not often researchers get a real pandemic to study.

Ebola doesn't spread in the air very easily. The fact that he can walk is a minor miracle in itself. Bet they are itching to get their hands on some of his blood right now!

If I were in charge with an outbreak like this, I would have experts from all fields studying it, including bio-war researchers. Not to use as a weapon, but to formulate defenses if someone tries to use it as a weapon. How would they get an infected patient in? How would they incubate the virus? How can it be engineered?

OBAMA IS NOT GOING TO DECLARE MARTIAL LAW.. I remember hearing that Clinton was going to do it and never did. I also remember hearing the Bush was going to declare Martial Law and he never did.. Can we stop the Martial Law bs?

LOL! 

You look at Obama straight in the eye.  You best get as far away as you can.  He's Lucifer.
