Obama Already HAD an Ebola Czar; Where Is She?

WHY did Obama just appoint some Male, political-flunkie with absolutely NO medical experience, when he already HAD Dr. Nicole Lurie?

Is this an example of Obama's war on women?...If anything, it certainly is another glaring example that Obama will let NO crisis go to waste, where it comes to playing politics and rewarding political favors to his cronies.

To hell with putting qualified people in charge of protecting the American people...let's further expand government reach by putting more unqualified, politic-playing, 'YES-MEN' in place!

This President is not only making ME sick...He's risking making the entire population sick in order to further his own shortsighted and narcissistic political goals!

Why Has Ebola Czar Nicole Lurie Been MIA?

Preparedness: Earlier this week, Sen. John McCain called for an Ebola czar, not knowing one already effectively exists. Why should he, since Nicole Lurie, M.D., M.S.P.H., has been completely M.I.A.

You have to wonder sometimes if anyone in a leadership position in the Obama administration bothers to show up to work these days.
Case in point is Dr. Nicole Lurie, who arguably should be front and center in planning for and responding to the Ebola outbreak.

After all, it's right there in her job title. She's the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, a position created in the wake of Hurricane Katrina that reports directly to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. Her mission, according to the HHS website, is "to lead the nation in preventing, responding to and recovering from the adverse health effects of public health emergencies."

Lead? Well, maybe she's leading from behind, because Lurie's been nowhere to be found since Ebola showed up on U.S. soil.
"You can barely find any mention of her in the news," notes The Federalist's Mollie Hemingway, who was first to point out this invisible leader.

Then again, it could be that, like everyone else in the Obama administration, Lurie's just not up to the job.
After all, on Sept. 11, Lurie told the Washington Post that her office was diligently working with other federal agencies "to ensure that U.S. health care providers, hospitals, health clinics, emergency medical services ... have the information they need to be prepared to identify and treat Ebola infections, in case anyone in the United States becomes sick after traveling from affected countries or from contact with infected individuals."

Two weeks later, Ebola-infected Thomas Duncan showed up at the Texas Presbyterian Health Hospital with a high fever after returning from Liberia, only to be discharged with a prescription for antibiotics.
If it seems as though the U.S. is rudderless against the rising Ebola tide, it's not for a lack of resources or agencies in the federal government.
It's because there's a glaring lack of competent leaders in the Obama administration.

Washington is corrupt beyond any repair, and now we are all in danger from it.

To pass on the lies that they are taking, you need to get a person who is not too smart and won't question what they are told. The guy on that mag 12 EQ video on the other thread would be great for the job.

The sad truth is; she probably WAS trying to do her job, but that wasn't what they wanted her to do. Exit stage left please.

Enter new Czar stage right....

I am still trying to shake up the fact that we have no leadership in the nation, for the buffoon baboons in government the way to tackle ebola is to create a position for another incompetent baboon with zero experience on anything that is not helping buddies in positions of power and cover up scandals, that is what the new buffon is

We really, really are in deep crap.

Dr. Nicole Lurie:

Nicole Lurie, M.D., M.S.P.H., is the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).[1] Lurie is a Rear Admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service.

The Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response serves as the Secretary's principal advisor on matters related to bioterrorism and other public health emergencies. The ASPR also coordinates interagency activities between HHS, other Federal departments, agencies, and offices, and State and local officials responsible for emergency preparedness and the protection of the civilian population from acts of bioterrorism and other public health emergencies.

[2] The mission of her office is to lead the nation in preventing, responding to and recovering from the adverse health effects of public health emergencies and disasters. Dr. Lurie was nominated to the position by President Obama on May 12, 2009[3] and her confirmation by the U.S. Senate[4] was announced by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on July 10, 2009.[5]

Led by The Federalist website her absence from the media has been noted with regards to the events of the Ebola virus disease affair.[6]

And she took grant money for research from the people who have the cure but are unable to make enough fast enough and gave it - all $433 million to a large Democratic Donor. 1102.3j5j1.9.0....0...1c.1.56.hp..6.4.424.0.Y0PXUJAV-YM

AND: the newly appointed Ebola Czar was chief of staff for Al Gore, the #1 environmentalists, and environmentalists are known for their hatred of humans and their push for depopulation. He was also responsible for doling out the stimulus money that did absolutely no good under Obama and much of which has been shown to be funneled to big democrat donors, specifically the now bankrupt Solendra. He also convinced the government that Fannie Mae wasn't a problem just before the housing bubble burst.

My theory, and that is all it is, is that he was appointed for 2 reasons
#1 he is great at manipulating the government for the Democratic Party, regardless of the outcome for the people of America
#2 to push the liberal/progressive depopulation agenda while appearing to help the little people

You're absolutely correct, WHY Would He Do That?

Well,,,, She might of listed to a Doctor who is an engineering professor with expertise in assessing the risks posed by pathogens. Yes, she may have listened to a Doctor Charles N. Haas.

And just what does this Expert have to say?

In a paper published Oct. 14 in the journal PLOS Currents: Outbreaks, Drexel University's Dr. Charles N. Haas argues that there's not enough evidence to support the recommended 21-day quarantine period for people suspected of harboring the virus.

"Twenty-one days has been regarded as the appropriate quarantine period for holding individuals potentially exposed to the Ebola virus to reduce the risk of contagion, but there does not appear to be a systemic discussion for the basis of this period," Hass said in a written statement.

Hass argues in the paper that outbreaks of Ebola in Zaire (1976) and Uganda (2000), as well as data from the first nine months of the current outbreak, suggest that there could be up to a 12-percent chance that someone could begin showing symptoms of Ebola after 21 days, according to the statement.

As Haas put it in an email to The Huffington Post, "the risk is certainly not zero of anyone beyond 21 days converting to symptomatic."

And as reported by the Washington Post, a paper published recently in the New England Journal of Medicine indicates that Ebola incubation times can be longer than that. According to the paper, "approximately 95%" of patients studied began to show symptoms within 21 days of exposure.

If 21 days is too short, what's the right length for an Ebola quarantine? Haas doesn't say.

"This is really a policy decision that needs to be made balancing the various costs, and other considerations such as personal liberty, that are involved," he told HuffPost Science. "There needs to be a formal deliberative process involving quantitative modelers along with economists and those familiar with regulatory and legal considerations."

An email seeking comment from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention went unanswered. Check back for updates.

Yes, she may have asked Obama to listen to this man and take his advice or at least,,,,, Put an Expert In-charge!

Another Huff post

So you're making this a "war on women" thing? Yet the new czar is Jewish, so Obama is still pushing affirmative action despite Klain having no medical experience.
