This was no ordinary rubber chicken affair. That was my reaction to the extraordinary keynoter at Tuesdays Better Government Association annual luncheon.
Lara Logan, a correspondent for CBS 60 Minutes, delivered a provocative speech to about 1,100 influentials from government, politics, media, and the legal and corporate arenas. Such downtown gatherings are a regular on Chicagos networking circuit. (I am a member of the BGAs Civic Leadership Committee, and the Chicago Sun-Times was a sponsor).
Her ominous and frightening message was gleaned from years of covering our wars in the Middle East. She arrived in Chicago on the heels of her Sept. 30 report, The Longest War. It examined the Afghanistan conflict and exposed the perils that still confront America, 11 years after 9/11.

Logan was repeatedly raped in Cairo by Muslims during the glorious Arab Spring. She is knowledgeable, and not afraid to tell the truth about what she knows.
There is some truth to the adage that a conservative is a liberal that has been mugged. However her “attitude” is totally unacceptable for CBS. She will be “counseled” as a courtesy and will be dismissed if this new perspective persists.
She's speaking directly to the US news media.
I guess Logan doesn't buy the 'twas a film made em riot' line, either.
I keep thinking that Obama has communicated to the Taliban and told them to chill out. At least till after his election when he will have more flexibility.
This should not be a surprise. In many ways, the Afghanistan war is a modern version of the Vietnam war. Hearts and Minds campaigns, Rules of Engagement that hamstring our forces, allowing safe havens, winking at our “ally” Pakistan, a PM (Karzai) who plays both sides, and, of course, a dedicated insurgency with a long term view of victory.
Just wait..the libtards in the MSM will start whispering that she’s suffering from PTSD after the Islamofascists raped her repeatedly..
Is anyone from the MSM planning to apologize for their breathless cheerleading coverage of the “Arab Spring”, not to mention their insistence that Obama’s election would usher in a new age of harmony in the ME?
In the good old days, reporters did not advocate, crusade or call for revenge.
In these new days in a post-9/11 world, perhaps we need more reporters who are willing to break the rules.
Sounds like Lara has learned a lesson.
Conservatives and patriots could have used her help in the past with disseminating the truth contrary to her employer's socialist/Muslim sycophant agenda.
“Eleven years later, they still hate us, now more than ever, Logan told the crowd. The Taliban and al-Qaida have not been vanquished, she added. Theyre coming back.”
Well, surprise, surprise, surprise.
I would have thought that once we began our nation building operations these 6th century ragheads would start organizing Civitan Clubs, chambers of commerce, and National Tolerance Day marches. After all, the leftists tell us people are the same everywhere. Oh well, what’s billions of American taxpayers’ dollars squandered among friends?
Reagan, Bush I and Clinton for the most part ignored them and that didn’t work. Obama’s trying to buy them off.
Agree that we should have smashed Iraq and got the hell out. Then keep doing it as needed.
She has essentially revealed that the Obama administration, with the complicity of the MSM, has committed fraud on the American people, and that the Obama administration is full of Islamist sympathizers.
I see CBS easing her out for this. Hopefully, Fox will snatch her up. She's smart, honest, and a babe, and would make a good addition to their lineup.
IMHO Muslims have much more respect for conservatives than liberals. We’re not pro-gay marriage or pro-abortion and we are not afraid to fight when necessary.
Yes, she would look good on Fox.
Except conservatives don’t plan on paying Jizya, while Obama does it with our tax dollars in our name.
They might respect us, but we stand in their way.
Sadly she had to be raped to understand the fight we are in. A year ago she would have been spouting just the opposite.
Pray for America
Yep, I read a lot about her last year. She's a serious journalist, likely one of the few that are left.
Some people are already informed enough about this. They are Freepers.
Reporters lose their "objectivity" when they tell the truth?
