Yes. It's all an experiment. Playing games with deadly viruses.
What could go wrong, huh?
I believe so, la-d-da. May be a cold way to look at it, but I would rather him be the subject of experimental treatment than a US citizen. I figure that's a fair enough trade for the free healthcare he got, aside from creating the fear he did by bringing the virus to our shores.
Apparently, he received an experimental drug different from the tobacco based drug which appeared to be a miracle cure for the two American patients treated in Liberia before being flown back home. The entire supply was exhausted on those two patients. I could be wrong, but seem to recall hearing that there is a single genetically modified tobacco plant in Kentucky which was the source of that drug.
