Skip to comments.CBS' Lara Logan Slams Obama Admin For Pushing "Major Lie" That Taliban Is Weakened [VIDEO]
Posted on 10/10/2012 7:42:09 AM PDT by Third Person
CBS News and "60 Minutes" reporter Lara Logan lambasted the Obama administration for pushing the "major lie" that the Taliban has been weakened in Afghanistan by the U.S. military. Logan gave a blistering speech in Chicago this past week that ripped the administration for the way it has handled the war in Afghanistan and the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya. "I chose this subject because, one, I can't stand that there is a major lie being propagated," Logan said about the administration touting the weakening of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Speaking about Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya who was killed, Logan says she hopes the U.S. will "exact revenge and let the world know that the United States will not be attacked on its own soil. That its ambassadors will not be murdered, and that the United States will not stand by and do nothing about it."

It’s not so much that Lara Logan became a conservative - as that she became a realist.
Hillary’s comment about how she couldn’t believe ‘they’ would do this after we ‘liberated them’ - is typical of liberal delusion.
Logan no longer buys delusions.
She tells the truth. She’s not a liberal. She tells it like it is. I can’t believe she’s lasted at CBS. Because of the sexual assault they are probably scared to fire her.
To follow my previous post.
I am very sorry that this happened to her and I expressed that then. I also expressed the same disbelief that many of us had prior to this incident that any media outlet would send a female journalist there.
There was a thread months before that about some female journalist wearing a head covering. I pointed out that female journalist over there were comparable to the idiot bear whisperer guy who lived with grizzlies. It made for great TV until one of the bears followed its genetic programming and killed and ate the guy. It was the nature of the bear.
The sooner more Americans (including media types) understand this the better off we will be.
Amen to Post 21. Reality does not mesh with political correctness and rainbows and unicorns.
Ah the old saying is so true. "A conservative is a liberal who has been mugged."
Islam is the religion of Satan, and Muhammed is his dung beetle of a prophet. Schiesseporn be upon him.
“nearly raped by Islamists”
Brutally raped, multiple times, via multiple methods... by people practicing the religion of peace.
Wow, I didn’t catch that part of the story. Islam is a religion that hates women.
So does the religion of liberalism. Look what liberals have done to womanhood in the US.
Amazing what a gang rape in Tahrir Square will do to you.
The US will take “revenge” all right. She’ll be covering the Podunk Flower Show for this.
Logan says she hopes the U.S. will "exact revenge and let the world know that the United States will not be attacked on its own soil. That its ambassadors will not be murdered, and that the United States will not stand by and do nothing about it."
Obama sent a stooge to Libya to meet with their new president on how they can help nail those behind the attacks. They are stuck on stupid.
Lara Logan is truly very courageous and intellectually honest. I hope she keeps shining the light on all the roaches. Great job, Lara!
LOL - well put...
It's sad, but you're probably right about why they haven't fired her yet... prayers for Lara Logan.
That depends on the "we" you're talking about. Outside of the cities, America could turn Israeli VERY quickly.
A liberal is a conservative who hasn't been mugged yet.
