CBS news and 60 minutes reporter Lara Logan calls out the Obama Admin. for advancing the "Major Lie" that the Taliban is weakened in Afghanistan by the US 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. –Real Clear Politics 10/10/12. Regarding Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya who was murdered, Logan stated that 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."
”There is this narrative coming out of Washington for the last two years,” Logan said. –partly fed to us by “Taliban apologists,” claiming that “they are just the poor moderate, gentler, kinder Taliban,” she stated. “It’s such nonsense!” Logan told the crowd.”
“She made a passionate case that the Obama Administration is purposely downplaying the strength of our enemies in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as a rationale of getting us out of the longest war. We have been lulled into believing that the perils are in the past”- L Washington Chicago Sun times 10/7/12: “You’re not listening to what the people who are fighting you say about this fight. In your arrogance, you think you write the script.” Our enemies “are writing the story”, and “there’s no happy ending for us”. “The Taliban and al-Qaida have not been vanquished, she added. They’re coming back”.-L. Logan
“I knew that we were being lied to, I knew that the American people were being misled”.[referring to the Obama Administration] “If you fail to identify what your enemy is really fighting for--If you lie about who they really are [the Taliban and al Qaida], I don’t see how you could possibly have the right strategy” “Our way of life [in America and the West] is under attack”---Lara Logan
