Allen West: Where Is Ebola Czar Ron Klain?

By    |   Tuesday, 28 Oct 2014 08:42 PM

Ron Klain was supposed to be the visible face of the Ebola fight when tapped to head up the government's response to the virus in the United States, but critics are complaining he's nowhere to be seen.

"So where is this person who's supposed to be coordinating, synchronizing all of these efforts?" former Florida congressman Allen West said Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren."

Van Susteren herself chimed him she's "almost ready to send out the search-and-rescue squad."

Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh joked earlier Tuesday that Klain himself might be in quarantine.

After weeks of insisting there was no need for an "Ebola czar," Obama finally relented, tapping Klain "Ebola response coordinator" on October 17. But he didn't report for duty until October 22. And since he had just taken over, he didn't show up for congressional testimony on October 24.

West told Fox News Klain should be discussing the issue with governors who are deciding whether to issue mandatory quarantines.

Instead, he said, Obama gave a statement to the press Tuesday that was "once again incoherent rambling."
