I think Sunnyvale was her final destination .. the first reports indicated this; though they did not indicate the origin.

The lady must be held liable - she KNEW about the infection and yet she boarded the flight - shows absolutely no regard for the fellow passengers.

The newsarticle ( weblink in the original post ) indicates that TB patients cannot board flights originating from USA - how on the earth do the airport officials know about a person having a TB strain?

Soviet America? Puulleesse! Anytime you think that Russia is America's equal in terms of surveillance, you're welcome to emigrate to the former. It's estimated that nearly 80% ofo the officials in place in the current Russian system are former party bosses and KGB. You have no idea.

And how is that any different than all the Nixon era cronies being back in power now? ;-)

There's a difference, believe me. When we start having free press reporters shot down in broad daylight by government operatives, then you'll know things have changed. Get real! :0
