US On Alert After Ottawa Shooting


The first day for the new Ebola Czar Ron Klain was overshadowed by events in Ottawa, with the administration indicating they were closely monitoring developments there, and instituting certain precautions, particularly it appears regarding potential Canadian or military personnel targets in the U.S.

But on the Ebola front, the CDC announced Wednesday that everyone traveling into the U.S. from Ebola-stricken nations will be monitored for symptoms for 21 days beginning Monday. That includes returning American aid workers, federal health employees and journalists, as well as West African travelers.

Politically, Klain is working to turn around a string of perceived failures by national agencies, including the IRS, Border Patrol, VA, and the Secret Service, from continuing with the CDC.
