The particular nature of the “breach of protocol” has not yet been announced. My guess is, they haven’t even identified one yet.
Wait: what is Patterico saying here?
I’m just going to come right out and say it: I don’t believe them. By saying that, I’m not saying it’s impossible they’re wrong. I’m just saying: I believe they would say this whether it’s true or not — because as a political matter they want to avoid panic and/or blame for Ebola. And we have seen many times before that they will say any old thing that benefits them politically, and the truth of the matter be damned.
