Hagel approves 21-day Ebola quarantine for troops



Hagel approves 21-day Ebola quarantine for troops

WASHINGTON (AP) -- All American troops returning from Ebola response missions in West Africa will be placed in supervised isolation for 21 days, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday. He called it a "safety valve" sought by military members' families.

The U.S. military has nearly 1,000 troops in Liberia and just over 100 in Senegal supporting efforts to combat the virus. The total could grow to 3,900 under current plans. None are intended to be in contact with Ebola patients.

In explaining his decision, Hagel noted that the military has more people in Africa helping with the Ebola effort than any other segment of the U.S. government.

"This is also a policy that was discussed in great detail by the communities, by the families of our military men and women, and they very much wanted a safety valve on this," he said at a public forum in Washington.

The move goes beyond precautions recommended by the Obama administration for civilians, although President Barack Obama has made clear he feels the military's situation is different from that of civilians, in part because troops are not in West Africa by choice.

Hagel acted in response to a recommendation sent to him Tuesday by Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on behalf of the heads of each of the military services. They cited numerous factors, including concerns among military families and the communities from which troops are deploying for the Ebola response mission.

Pentagon officials said it was too early to know exactly how the quarantine-like program will work. Hagel said he directed the Joint Chiefs to provide him within 15 days a detailed implementation plan. A Pentagon spokesman, Col. Steve Warren, said it is yet to be determined whether the new policy applies to Defense Department civilians returning from Liberia and to military air crews who fly in and out of the area without staying overnight.

As originally envisioned, Pentagon policy called for troops returning to their home bases from Ebola response missions to undergo temperature checks twice a day for 21 days to ensure they are free of Ebola symptoms and to be prohibited from travelling widely during that period. But they were not to be quarantined and kept from contact with others.

The Army, however, acting on its own this week, put a small number of returning soldiers, including a two-star general, in 21-day quarantine in Italy. That group was the first to return from West Africa after Ebola duty. Warren said that group of soldiers has grown from 12 to 42; all are in supervised isolation at a military base in Vicenza, their home base.

Hagel said he believed the 21-day supervised isolation, which he called "controlled monitoring," is a prudent measure. He ordered the service chiefs to conduct within 45 days a review of this new regimen.

"This review will offer a recommendation on whether or not such controlled monitoring should continue based on what we learn and observe from the initial waves of personnel returning from Operation United Assistance," Hagel's spokesman, Rear Adm. John Kirby, said in a written statement, using the official name of the military mission against Ebola in Africa.

"The secretary believes these initial steps are prudent given the large number of military personnel transiting from their home base and West Africa and the unique logistical demands and impact this deployment has on the force," Kirby added. "The secretary's highest priority is the safety and security of our men and women in uniform and their families."

US to increase security at federal buildings across America due to 'continued public calls by terrorist organizations for attacks on the homeland'

US to increase security at federal buildings across America due to 'continued public calls by terrorist organizations for attacks on the homeland'
  • Secretary Jeh Johnson announced the move Tuesday
  • Week after a gunman in Ottawa shot dead a soldier in attack on parliament
  • Johnson would not identify the buildings to receive enhanced security
  • He did not disclose the specific security measures to be taken by the Federal Protective Service

The Homeland Security Department says security will be increased at federal government buildings in Washington and other cities.

Secretary Jeh Johnson announced the move Tuesday, one week after a gunman in Ottawa shot a soldier and stormed Canada's seat of government.

Johnson says the increased security is in response to 'continued public calls by terrorist organizations for attacks on the homeland and elsewhere.'

Johnson would not identify the buildings that will receive enhanced security or disclose the specific security measures to be taken by the Federal Protective Service. 

The agency protects nearly 10,000 federal facilities.

Today U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday that an attack on the Canadian parliament and the country's National War Memorial last week in which a soldier was killed was clearly a terrorist act.

'Clearly, anybody who walks up in a premeditated way with a loaded rifle and attacks someone in uniform then purposely goes to a parliament, is committing, by common sense standards, a terrorist act,' Kerry told a news briefing after talks in Ottawa with his Canadian counterpart, Foreign Minister John Baird.

Two days before the attack in Ottawa on Oct. 22, a car driven by a man described by police as a homegrown radical ran down two soldiers, killing one in Quebec.
Secretary Jeh Johnson announced the move Tuesday, one week after a gunman in Ottawa shot a soldier and stormed Canada's seat of government.

The attack has had ramifications across the world - in London armed soldiers have been deployed at a top tourist attraction in the heart of the city's government district as a precautionary measure after an Islamist gunman attacked the Canadian parliament last week, a military source said on Tuesday.

The source told Reuters that the decision to deploy the troops at the entrance to Horse Guards Parade in London's Whitehall was not motivated by a specific threat but was designed to be a visible deterrent.
