Column: Treat Ebola like a security threat

American public health officials face two formidable challenges: the possible spread of Ebola -- and the possible spread of panic about Ebola.

Duncan, suffering from fever and abdominal pain, was sent home from a Dallas emergency room despite blazing red flags. The Ebola patient has now died.

So the assurances from federal officials haven't been too convincing.
