If you've turned on the news recently, you'd think there was an ebola epidemic occurring here in America. Every news cycle supplies breathless new updates about the 3 - count 'em 3 - people in the U.S. that contracted ebola. Apparently the pet dog of one of the patients has been cleared, though, so that's good news.
The ebola "crisis" supplants the previous must-do-something-now urgency of the situation in the Middle East with ISIL. Despite the lack of coverage, they are still there, and they are still doing horrific things, but no Americans have been executed recently (at least - not over there. Texas may be a different story), so there's been "nothing to report". Sure they've gotten their hands on American armaments
meant for the Kurds (or taken from retreating Iraqi troops), but hey - that just means more American jobs building replacements. Ooops.
