It appears that we have a working vaccine for Ebola Zaire and the most virulent strain of Marburg.

While I’m sure this won’t be played up very much by the anti-Bush crew, this vaccine was developed almost exclusively due to increased funding stemming from the “War on Terror.” Marburg virus has long been a bio-weapons concern, especially following revelations about the weaponized version of the virus that was successfully developed by the Soviets during the Cold War.

So, three cheers for Science. And maybe half a cheer for the War on Terror, just to be fair.
