U.S. military had advanced knowledge of Ebola outbreak
WASHINGTON, D.C. (INTELLIHUB) — Unusual military detection equipment has been issued to the Army National Guard in all 50 states after Congress was prompted by the Department of Defense (DoD) that a possible JBAIDS hemorrhagic fever (Ebola) outbreak may occur in the near future, as reported by potrblog.
The strategic goals summary which was submitted on April 8, 2014 to Congress in a statement by Carmen J. Spencer, Joint Program Executive Officer for Chemical and Biological Defense details the urgency of the new requested budget:
The Fiscal Year 2015 Budget Request for the Chemical and Biological Defense Program includes $320.5 million for procurement, $553.6 million for advanced development, and $407.2 million for science and technology efforts within a total of $1.387 billion.
The budget request supports the Program’s four enduring strategic goals:
1. Equip the force to successfully conduct military operations to prevent, protect against, and respond to chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear threats and effects.
2. Prevent surprise by anticipating chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear threats and developing new capabilities for the Warfighter to counter emerging threats.
3. Maintain infrastructure to meet and adapt current and future needs for personnel, equipment, and facilities within funding constraints.
4. Lead the enterprise to integrate and align activities to fulfill the Chemical and Biological Defense Program mission.
It’s also important to take note that $553.6 million was requested by the DoD for “advanced deployment”, likely the same appropriation that provided such detection units to be deployed throughout the U.S. in advance.
Moreover and shockingly, global authorities are now on full alert as Ebola, which has a 90% kill rate, is spreading rapidly across Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria, according to reports.
“Experts say that in its earliest stages symptoms of Ebola include fever, aches and a sore throat.”, wrote
To boot, Tuesday, a man in the UK was tested for Ebola after traveling through Paris from Nigeria. However, luckily for the man the tests came back negative and he was released from a hospital in Birmingham.
Dovetailing into the situation, the Mirror reported what may be the most narly thing I myself have ever read:
Meanwhile, doctors fear Ebola victim Patrick Sawyer may have sparked a worldwide spread of the killer disease after being allowed on two flights while infected.
And tonight a desperate race was on to find dozens of passengers who flew on the same jets as the 40-year-old American.
British doctors and border officials have been warned to be on the lookout for people in the UK showing signs of the disease.
Mr Sawyer was allowed to board an ASKY Airlines flight in Liberia, where Ebola is rife, despite vomiting and suffering from diarrhea. His sister was recently killed by the virus.
Ladies and gentlemen, fasten your seat belts and get ready for a bumpy ride as Ebola may soon emerge in the U.S.. Now the only thing one must wonder is; was this planned?
