Laura Ingraham thinks that Obama sending 3,000 troops to combat, and certainly be exposed to, Ebola in Africa is his way of extending his father's rage against America's colonial past.
According to Obama's father and certainly Obama himself, Africa is poor and destitute because America is rich and privileged, therefor America's wealth must be transferred to Africa and the American people must be as vulnerable as Africans are. He's using the US military to symbolically "level the playing field".
To Obama, if Africans see rich, privileged, white Americans suffering from the same maladies that plague the dark continent, they'll feel better about themselves because America is finally getting what it deserves.
Laura might be on to something.
