President Obama announces Presidential Plan designed to stamp out Ebola Epidemic
Special to the AP: Speaking from the White House lawn, President Obama announced his plan to stamp out the Ebola Epidemic in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and other affected neighboring countries in Africa where the epidemic has gone out of control.
“We had to bomb some folks,” announced the President, as part of his program to stamp out the epidemic.
Congress voted unanimously to back up the president’s plan to offer this humanitarian bombing to the affected African countries after Doctors Without Borders declared the epidemic to be out of control.
The Pentagon’s Chuck Hagle supported the Presidential decision. “In the fight against Ebola, carpet bombing is the most humanitarian way to stem the tide of infection,” he declared. “There is no need to take precautions burying the bodies. We are using the highest efficiency vaporization technology.”
Francis Collins, director of NIH Bethesda backed him up. “Bombing has been shown to stop the infection in its tracks.”
The ceremony honoring Mr. Collins was held on the White House lawn. Besides the president, In attendance was The Very First Lady, and Defense Subcommittee members of the Senate and the House of Representatives, as well as members of the Defense Appropriations Committee of the U.S. Congress.
