CBS Reporter Lara Logan Slams Obama Administration for Major Lie about Taliban

| October 11 2012

The official line from the Obama administration has been that Al Qaeda and the Taliban are on the wane after the death of Osama Bin Laden.  This was to have been a major (positive) accomplishment for Obama, of which there are few to none.

However —

1. It appears that the Taliban and Al Qaeda didn’t get the memo that they are supposed to be on the wane.  They’ve attacked embassies all over the Middle East, and they’ve murdered four Americans in Libya, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

2. Joe Biden and others in the administration may well have inflamed the militants themselves with their taunt that “Bin Laden is dead, and GM is alive.”  Incredibly, Joe Biden is still using this line, bombastically, publicly, in front of huge audiences.

3. The Obama administration’s attempt to spin the crisis by deflecting blame onto a no-name internet movie trailer has completely collapsed.

Add to this the clear testimony about Al Qaeda and Taliban resurgence from respected reporter Lara Logan of CBS News.  Ms Logan was gang-raped and atrociously molested in February, 2011, while covering Thomas Friedman’s vaunted Arab Spring “Facebook Revolution” celebrations in Egypt.

Logan ripped the Obama administration last week for the way it has handled Middle East affairs.  This is an incredibly brave woman who speaks with experience, knowledge, and a moral authority that Thomas Friedman can never match, no matter how much wishful-thinking sophistry he slathers on his chin-pulling New York Times readers as they sip their lattes in Manhattan’s upper-east-side cafés.

About the supposed taming of the Taliban, Logan says:

… I can’t stand that there is a major lie being propagated … [I hope that 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.

Put more succinctly, a nonprofit executive and former magazine editor summarized Logan’s speech with:

Shoot ‘em, bomb ‘em, [f**k] ‘em.  They will kill your children.

Many on the Left have long believed that the best way to deal with evil is to make nice-nice to it.  That belief may buttress their already sanctimonious self-image.  Beginning with his apology tour, Obama has made it a national policy, and we’re now seeing some of the early dividends.

Thanks to Logan’s testimony, at least a few on the Left have begun losing their general naïveté about evil.

By far, this is the story of not only a journalist (Lara Logan of 60 minutes), who was gang raped in Egypt last year while doing her job covering the changing Egyptian administration, but it is an going story, it has no ending and an end must be sought.  She has the courage to go back to that part of the world, that hates us in every way possible, that seeks our destruction and our way of life at any cost, no less Israel. 

It is a story that has no beginning, there cannot be a beiginning until we are able to identify the enemy and call it out for what it is and our present administration will not less us, more importantly will not let our military call it out, even so far as to have rules of engagemnet (rubber bullets and must receive the okay prior to defending themselvs) restrict them from doing life threatening jobs while protecting the homeland.

These are Lara Logan's words, not mine, God bless her for having the  courage and intelligence. and even getting it right, that this is her job, as all journalists, to give us the news.

As she was interviewing General Allen, he said to her he has never been so cunsumed, so completely consumed with anything this  in his career.

I feel the same way (these past 4 years) as so many of us patriots feel, as men like David Leeper has the guts and intelligence to make us aware of what and whom are the forces on both sides (good and evil), and what our government has to do in order to protect the homeland and its citizens, and that, is the first and foremost job of our government (which we all know is being degraded with this POTUS), and we get cover ups, and worse than that, we have approximately 2000 dead troops, of which 1500 or so have been killed during the past 4 years,  and the cost of this is also three to four fold, with approx 5 Billion $, and 3.75 Billion  $ of that again, is the past 4 years (this admin), that is the cost of this war, in people and dollars, this is the comparrison of the total cost and the cost of this admin, you need nothing else to figure it out for yourself. 

After reading and watching all the videos, and going into the blue print highlights (e.g. Thomas Freidman, the complete story,etc.),there should be no doubt that we  must have leadership and people like Lara Logan to come out and tell the truth, no hidden agendas, and men like Leeper to put it print so you and I know what our government doesn't tell us, and lies about, and that must end.  NOW!

And ifour government doesn't know what their job is, read and listen to Lara Logan, she said perfectly.

Then we can start and work towards ending this war on terror that is only growing, that is the only end, WIN!
