One of the larger political issues was the involvement of the military. Was Ebola the type of threat that the Army was equipped to handle? The C.D.C was in charge of handling infectious diseases and not the Army. In the end, who would be responsible for issues like "hot monkeys". Nothing like this had been dealt with before. Were politicians looking out for the best interests of the people or rather the best interests of their careers?
