Beautiful 60-Minutes journalist Lara Logan was reporting on the so-called Arab Spring on the day Hosni Mubarak left his palace forever. The week before, Logan survived a “harrowing night” in a Cairo jail, “blindfolded” and put in a “stress position.” According to the NY Daily News, Logan was “kicked out” of Egypt but “spent the next week struggling” to go back to Cairo. Which she did. The same day she arrived back in Cairo a brutal rape of some sort happened. More on that below, but for now, Lara Logan who has spent long periods of time in Islamic countries spoke to the Better Government Association, in CHICAGO, a week ago and told them the Obama rhetoric (Taliban apologists) about the Taliban for the past two years is a “lie.”
She explained that the Taliban, al Qaeda and its proxies haven’t gone away and are in fact re-energized and coming back in force. Logan also informed the crowd that a “lie” is being propagated by the American government.
“I chose this subject because, one, I can’t stand, that there is a major lie being propagated…” Logan announced. The lie is that the U.S. military has tamed the Taliban.
“There is this narrative coming out of Washington for the last two years,” Logan began. It is driven in part by “Taliban apologists,“ who claim ”they are just the poor moderate, gentler, kinder Taliban.”

Logan stepped way out of the “objective,” journalistic role. The audience was riveted as she told of plowing through reams of documents, and interviewing John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan; Afghan President Hamid Karzai, and a Taliban commander trained by al-Qaida. The Taliban and al-Qaida are teaming up and recruiting new terrorists to do us deadly harm, she reports.
She made a passionate case that our government is 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: “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, she suggests, and there’s no happy ending for us.
How unfortunate is it that Juanita Broadderick, whose compelling story of being raped by Bill Clinton, didn’t interest the press. In fact, the Liberal press didn’t know how to report what happened to Lara Logan. Should they use the ‘rape’ word, which might be embarrassing to her more importantly, Islam and dirty the beautiful Arab Spring? No, they would say she was “sexually abused.” That’s about all we knew. What we think we know today is that was was stripped and hand-raped over and over on the streets of Cairo, out in the open – brutally, for a long, sustained period of time. She spent several days in the hospital and was badly injured internally.
When Logan, a native of South Africa, was rescued in Cairo, it was only because Egyptian women brought about 20 Egyptian members of the military to save her from the Muslim men who believe humiliation of an infidel, and particularly a female infidel, is the highest order of following the Koran next to killing that infidel. During the Time of Obama, We.Do.Not.Offend.Islam.
Okay. Watch your language. This isn’t about Lara, it’s about the press, and specifically CBS. There is a new story in the Daily Mail, and once again, the “rape” word isn’t used. Apparently “bite marks” on “sensitive parts of her body,” were not bite marks, they were “pinches.” She was stripped according to the story. No other details. Logan was “whipped and beaten.” Her guards were also badly beaten. One has a broken hand.
Today Lara Logan is telling us that we will not change the hearts and minds of Afghan men, particularly those in the Taliban – those we are paying to supposedly lay down their guns and become part of the ‘legitimate’ Karzai government. These men are “coming for us” she says. She knows a thing or two about this, just as you and I do, and we haven’t come close to being in her terrifying circumstances.
The Liberal press will suffer for what they have done to this country one day. I don’t know when that day will come, but it will come. In the meantime, the 1,100 Government “influentials,” the movers and shakers listening to Logan, knew before the walked in the door that what she told them is true. They are coming for us. They hate us. They hate us more today than they did the day before the Arab Spring broke out. Everyday the hate from the Islamic world for the West increases. Every single day we do suspect and assume the hate increases, is a day we are dumber than the day before.
