Is it Possible for terrorists to turn themselves into Ebola suicide 'bombs'?

The idea is scary, horrific, terrible etc. Can you imagine "Ebola suicide killers/ "bombers" ??!
According to a military specialist, there are speculations terrorist group ISIS may be considering using Ebola as a suicide bio-weapon against the West.
Since the virus is transmitted by direct contact with an infected person who is staging the symptoms, it wouldn't be long before the extremists contract it then travel to their target countries
Capt. Al Shimkus, Ret., a Professor of National Security Affairs at the U.S. Naval War College, said that the strategy is entirely plausible.
He told Forbes
'The individual exposed to the Ebola Virus would be the carrier. In the context of terrorist activity, it doesn't take much sophistication to go to that next step to use a human being as a carrier.'
And Professor Anthony Glees, Director at Buckingham University's Center for Security and Intelligence Studies, agrees that the strategy might be considered.

God help us all .
