What with Islamic State, Russia, ebola, cyber warfare, solar flares, asteroid dangers, I think I will just go and hibernate in some cave.

According to Wikipedia there are only 70,000 employees in the US state Dept.
Why order 90,000 more than you have employees ?
This is weird.

I think this is the worst breakout of ebola seen and it's growing quickly. Whatever is need to save people we should send.
