Pentagon joins in on the ‘War on Ebola’ with 30 man crisis team

During his nearly six years in office, President Obama has chosen to establish his legacy by fighting ideological wars and using the military to accomplish what scientists and civilians are better equipped to resolve.  From the war on climate change, to now, the war on Ebola, the Commander in Chief has used ideological bogeymen to justify the creation of vast bureaucracies and control mechanisms meant to last indefinitely, and consume hundreds of billions of dollars in the process.
 
Which is why in just a three week period since the Ebola scare has made it to the American shores, Obama has created the office of an Ebola Czar, signed an Executive Order to call up the National Guard, sent the 101st Airborne to Africom, and now, on Oct. 19, had his Secretary of Defense create a military run medical crisis team to respond to domestic outbreaks across the continental United States.
