President Obama is doing reasonably well on this whole Ebola thing -- at least on the public relations front -- but another new poll suggests Americans want him to take actions that he has resisted so far.CBS reports on the new poll-
The poll, from CBS News, shows a whopping 80 percent of people want American citizens and legal residents returning from West Africa to be quarantined until it is determined that they are Ebola-free. Another 17 percent think they should be allowed to enter the country if they are symptom-free at the time.
The poll, notably, did not specify just how long such people would need to be quarantined -- about 21 days -- or where they would be quarantined. (Such specifics could conceivably reduce support.)
The poll echoes a Washington Post-ABC News poll from earlier this week that showed support for restricting entry from those same countries at 70 percent.
“I voted in Moline on Monday October 27. I had heard about the machines having issues on TV, but I was shocked when it started happening to me!” the man who uploaded the video on YouTube writes.
As many as 20 to 30 former Guantanamo Bay detainees released within the last two to three years are suspected by intelligence and Defense officials of having joined forces with the Islamic State and other militant groups inside Syria, Fox News has learned.
The development has cemented fears that the U.S. military would once again encounter militants taken off the battlefield.
The intelligence offers a mixed picture, and officials say the figures are not exact. But they are certain at least some of the released detainees are fighting with the Islamic State, or ISIS, on the ground inside Syria. Others are believed to be supporting Al Qaeda or the affiliated al-Nusra Front in Syria.
A number of former detainees also have chosen to help these groups from outside the country, financing operations and supporting their propaganda campaigns.
Sources who spoke to Fox News were not able to provide the identities of the fighters.
Senior Defense and intelligence officials say the vast majority of detainees released from Guantanamo don't return to the fight -- and of those who do, relatively few have made it to Syria.

Somebody like you doesn’t know a damn thing about what your talking about except to show off when the cameras are here. But until that time, sit down and shut up”

Iraqi soldier: "Fierce fighting took place, but in the end terrorism was defeated and we captured the bridge. It was very tough. The Iraqi forces have been fighting for control several months. Now our forces are deployed over the bridge, on its left and right sides and the situation is very good, God willing."Security officials say ISIS militants fled to nearby villages and are still launching attacks.
