CDC claims Ebola is spread by traveling droplets coughed or sneezed from an infected person, which is also how they say the flu is transmitted. Yet the flu is airborne and Ebola is not?

A new flyer released three days ago by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explains the differences between airborne viruses and droplet spread viruses, and lists definitions. The CDC explains that airborne viruses happen "when a germ floats through the air after a person talks, coughs, or sneezes. Germs may land in the eyes, mouth, or nose of another person".
Then, under "droplet spread" viruses, it states, "Droplet spread happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose, or mouth of another person. Droplets travel short distances, less than 3 feet (1 meter) from one person to another".
Near the bottom of the flyer is a short FAQ section. It states, "Is Ebola airborne? No. Ebola is not spread through the airborne route nor through water or food".

The next question states, "Is Ebola spread through droplets? Yes. To get Ebola, you have to directly get body fluids (like pee, poop, spit, sweat, vomit, semen, breast milk) from someone who has Ebola in your mouth, nose, eyes or through a break in your skin or through sexual contact".
All well and good right? The CDC is saying the Ebola virus cannot be transmitted through the air, but by direct contact with someone else's bodily fluids. But, when we read the CDC's definition of how the flu is spread, we see something very interesting.
On the CDC's flu page on "how it spreads" it says this:
"People with flu can spread it to others up to about 6 feet away. Most experts think that flu viruses are spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Less often, a person might also get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth or nose".

Interesting. Here, the CDC is basically saying that the flu is spread in the exact same manner the Ebola virus is spread, through droplet spread...when people infected with the flu cough, sneeze or talk to another person. This is nearly identical to the definition given by the CDC for how Ebola is transmitted, "when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose, or mouth of another person", yet the CDC claims Ebola is not airborne, but the flu is.
The CDC is simply playing word games here. Notice how they try to mask words in both definitions [for transmitting Ebola and the flu]. Under the Ebola transmission definition, they state the "germs traveling inside droplets" must be coughed or sneezed into another person's eyes, nose or mouth for that person to be infected. Under the flu transmission definition, they simply just omit the word "germs" and say it's the droplets themselves that can infect a person with the flu.
What's the difference between "germs inside of droplets" and just "droplets"? Absolutely nothing, since germs are obviously inside droplets of people with the flu when they sneeze and cough on someone, or else there would be no way for them to spread the flu [if there were no transmission of germs].
Since the CDC admits that Ebola can be spread through the transmission of droplets from a sick person [whether it be spit or sweat] to another person's eyes, nose or mouth, why is this not considered "airborne" since they admitted in their flu definition that "flu viruses are spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lung"?
If I have Ebola and I spit in someone's mouth, nose or eyes, why is this not considered airborne to the CDC, when they have admitted the flu is transmitted the exact same way and that is airborne?
So, the obvious question needs to be asked: Why is the CDC lying to the American people by telling us all that the Ebola virus is not airborne when their definition of how to transmit Ebola is practically identical to how the flu is spread? Everyone knows the flu is airborne. This is why people with the flu are told to stay home from school or work, so that others cannot be easily infected since it is airborne. A more important question is, why is no one holding the CDC accountable for the purposeful deception and outright lying about a disease that can kill?
A person with the AIDS virus who purposely and knowingly transmits their disease onto another person can be convicted in a court of law for infecting another person when they knew they carried a deadly disease in their body. So, tell me, why is the CDC allowed to get away with the very same crime for purposely misleading the American public for knowingly telling everyone that the Ebola is not airborne while they admit that the Ebola virus is transmitted in the exact same manner as the flu?
This is criminal activity to say the least and Obama is solely responsible since he has the authority to fire the CDC director and to enact Ebola guidelines like making quarantining mandatory for those infected with Ebola.
