President Obama Explains Why He Is Sending 10x More Troops To Fight Ebola Than ISIS - Live Feed

As we discussed earlier, President Obama is sending 3,000 US combat troops into Ebola-fighting danger in West Africa (almost 10 times the number of non-combat troops being sent to Iraq and Syria to fight that other epidemic - ISIS). Speaking from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, we wonder if the President will stick to the line that the USA is "safe" (despite scientists predicting a 20% chance of infection here by year-end), that it is contained (despite scientists proclaiming this unprecedented and out of control), and why is the CDC telling US health-workers "now is the time to prepare."

One can only assume the reason to send "troops" is to monitor and mind 'stability' in these nations as The IMF steps up its bailout funding...


President Obama is due to speak at 1605ET - plan accordingly...
