Duncan Lied on Ebola Screening Form

Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian who brought Ebola to the U.S., lied on an airport questionnaire in Liberia, meant to contain the disease.

The more information that comes out about this, the angrier I get.

From the New York Times:

Thomas E. Duncan, the Liberian man who developed Ebola symptoms in Dallas after flying from Liberia to the United States last month, lied about his history of contact with the disease on an airport questionnaire meant to screen out passengers who might be carrying the virus and is subject to prosecution when he returns, Binyah Kesselly, chairman of the Liberia Airport Authority, said Thursday.

When Mr. Duncan flew out of Roberts International Airport in Monrovia, the Liberian capital, on Sept. 19, he answered “no” to a question about whether he had had contact with any person who might have been stricken with Ebola in the past 21 days, the maximum period of incubation for Ebola, Mr. Kesselly said.

“He lied on his form,” Mr. Kesselly said. “If he had answered truthfully, he would have been sent to secondary screening immediately and not allowed to leave.”

Mr. Kesselly said Mr. Duncan would be prosecuted upon his return for lying on the questionnaire.
Duncan should be prosecuted for his lies.

At least Liberian authorities have the decency and the integrity to do it.

I can't say the same for the U.S. authorities. Obama is allowing the free flow of disease into the U.S. thanks to his intentional failure to secure our borders.

I do not trust the information about Ebola coming from the CDC and the Obama administration.

Everything is a cover-up with them. Everything is a pack of lies. There is no trust.

Why the hell hasn't Obama addressed the nation about the Ebola situation in America?

Is he personally calling the parents of Dallas school children possibly exposed to the Ebola virus, to check if they're OK?

After all, Obama took the time to make a personal call to Sandra Fluke.

With all due respect, what a jerk!
