Thanks For Nothing, Moron Politicians


It should have been stopped in Africa. There should have been an All Hands On Deck response from the start.

WHO’s pathetic self-centered weeping about its response being “inadequate” doesn’t bring back the thousands who died horrible deaths that could have been prevented.

The WHO, the UN agency designated with coordinating international response to disease outbreaks, missed chances to prevent Ebola from spreading when it was first diagnosed last spring, thanks to incompetent staff, a lack of information and bureaucracy due to “politically motivated appointments”, the report says. “Nearly everyone involved in the response failed to see some fairly plain writing on the wall,” said the report, obtained by the Associated Press. “A perfect storm was brewing.” The WHO refused to comment on the draft report.
