Hot off the heels of his abysmal CNN interview yesterday, Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the CDC, tweeted that the U.S. shouldn’t isolate countries where Ebola is running rampant. Is he simply saying that U.S. military and aid workers should continue to work to contain the Ebola virus in Africa? Or, more ominously, is he signaling opposition to restrictions on air travel to the U.S. from Ebola-ravaged countries?

@DrFriedenCDC you don't think borders should be closed to contain? Still send supports but no travel ?

@DrFriedenCDC – It is not isolation that is issue, the return trip is problematic. You may not be as clever as you think. US deaths follow.

@DrFriedenCDC Everything possible should be done to keep it out!

@DrFriedenCDC @pikester45 Is this a joke? Isolation. Isolation. Isolation. Isolation.

@DrFriedenCDC @pikester45 stop spread to other countries by restricting flights out. continue to send assistance. pretty simple really.

@DrFriedenCDC Don't isolate them. But for God sakes wake up and do a better job screening people coming back. Ellis island comes to mind.
