CBS News Reporter Slams Obama Over Taliban Lie
Arutz Sheva ^ | 12/10/12 | Elad Benari

Posted on 10/13/2012 11:06:05 AM PDT by Eleutheria5

CBS News and "60 Minutes" reporter Lara Logan has lambasted the Obama administration for pushing what she called the "major lie" that the Taliban has been weakened in Afghanistan by the U.S. military.

According to a Fox News report, Logan spoke last week to a crowd of about 1,100 at last the Better Government Association annual luncheon in Chicago. During the speech she accused the administration of downplaying the number of Al Qaeda operatives in Afghanistan to support its rush to leave.

She also claimed Washington acts as apologists for the Taliban by downplaying their links to Al Qaeda and the strength of their organization.

Logan also criticized the Obama administration over its handling of the attack that killed four Americans in Libya.

Disgruntled, disillusioned in need of a post-traumatic distress syndrome time out, soon-to-be former CBS employee Lara Logan........

“Now if only she would say the same things in public.”

Looks like she did! She gave a speech to 1100 people . Just how “public” does it have to be?

Even though it would end her career it would be cool if she said it on 60 Minutes right after the foosball game.

Knowing the way things work here I suspected that she would be held as a hero because of what she said. Just wanted to make sure everyone knew the truth. She also took a hit on FR when that first happened back in 08 (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2160882/posts).

Hero? She had an epiphany, and now she has a clue. That doesn’t qualify her for any laurels just yet.

Leaving for another time, of course, the discussion of why we should discount what she said because of what she did. /s

She no longer wants to take one for the team. Amazing how reality turns one conservative real fast.

I’ll take her opinion, as an experienced war correspondent, over yours anyday.

‘Nuff said.

I expect that once a woman is raped by Muslims, which she was, it serves to clarify one’s thinking process.

Logan knows what the American and European elite’s politically correct delusion will produce for Americans and the world. Guts ripped out by pure savages...

Didn’t say I disagreed with her opinion. Just wanted to head off her getting any laurals here. Also, returned from over there not too long ago so sit down and be quiet.

‘Nuff Said (as sarcastically as I can.)

“Terrorism has not gone away (in afghanistan). Terrorism has increased.”

In other words, o’bidens have been completely ineffective. Four f’n years and they’ve made it WORSE.

You know, having dozens of filthy savages forcing various parts of themselves into one’s nether regions does focus the mind. Good on Lara. Prayers to her.

Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. That’s racism. She had dozens of proud descendants of dessert nomads and the peoples they conquered and forced various parts of themselves into the nether regions of their great grandmothers, in keeping with their proud cultural traditions shoving parts of themselves into her nether regions. She should have been happy to have partaken in this time-honored custom, and mourned the fact that they didn’t get her up the duff, and then converted to Islam out of gratitude. What’s the matter with the little trollop. Didn’t she enjoy herself? If she didn’t want that sort of attention, she should have put on a burkha./SARC! Very SARC!

So sorry for the mispelling. I should have said “laurel,” a plant that Ancient Greeks used to make wreaths to annoint those they saw as deserving honor. If you thought I would remain silent after you assumed that I didn’t know as much as a journalist about Afghanistan (since you must have assumed I was never there) you were wrong. Here’s the deal: I agree with her in this argument. While it was the right thing to do to attack the nation that sponsored an attack on us the last few years of “Meals on Wheels” only seems to help a culture that wants us dead and will turn on us once we leave. Frankly now I think we should have just gone in, wrecked the place, and told them “If we ever see something coming from here again we’ll be back and it will be worse.” However, know how many folks here on FR think I knew as soon as Logan’s comments came out it would be comment after comment saying how she’s the best thing since sliced bread. Fact is she’s not. I’d say “Thanks for your honest views about Afghanistan. I know that you risk your standing at CBS for making them. Now stay away from my family.”

IF, and I repeat, IF, the MSM EVER spoke the truth and did not cover for this guy. Actually TOLD THE TRUTH, he would not get 10% of the vote in November. But, as I said, BIG IF. Meaning: never will happen.

On the bright side, it was Legitimate Rape so she couldn’t get pregnant.

CBS?
She won’t be there for long. The CBS newsroom will not look kindly on one of their own “dissing” Ubama at a time when they are doing everything they can to get him re-elected. Logan is toast around there.

Well, he would get at least 12%, anyway.
And never sell short the stupidity of white liberals, not to mention the selfishness of the "free sh!+" armies of Democrats - - the bums, deadbeats, and parasites who comprise the party base - - who simply couldn't care less about character, integrity, honesty, etc., as long as their Democrat politicians keep delivering "free sh!+" in exchange for their votes.

As Dear old Dad always said, "Once the parasites outnumber the hosts, it's all over. The Democrats win."

Lol. I doubt she has any designs on your family.

But in cold hard dailight, since you seem to toss your own Afghanistan service into the pot: it’s entirely possible that her public stand now carries more actual effect than your service under Obama ROEs.

Knew, even by the oblique headline, it concerned Lara.

I revere this woman.
