Ebola for me! Ebola for thee!

In the video they refer to “Dark Winter.”  The Dark Winter exercise (June of 2001) portrayed a fictional scenario depicting a covert smallpox attack on U.S. citizens. The scenario is set in 3 successive National Security Council (NSC) meetings which take place over 2 weeks. Former senior government officials played the roles of NSC members; media representatives were among the observers and played journalists during the mock press conferences. The exercise was held at Andrews Air Force Base, Washington, DC

Based on the Ebola fiasco (preparedness) one might get the idea that after spending probably tons of money to put together and play out the “exercise” that the government just s***canned the whole thing.  Didn’t learn anything from it.  Such is the great American government.

Or, perhaps more darkly, the current administration had to find out how closely a true emergency of this type would play out for real compared to the exercise of 2001.
