And she ought to know. Lara Logan of CBS’s 60 Minutes speaking in Chicago last week at the Better Government Association’s annual luncheon (I’m thinking they need to meet more often), pulled the mask down on the Obama administration’s narrative over the last 2 years that Al Qaeda has been decimated (Osama is dead and GM is alive -stupid on so many fronts) and downplaying the Taliban links to Al Qaeda.
Somehow Obama gained stature as the master of foreign policy among the MSM, the Hollywood crowd, the über left and lib-tards of every stripe. But wonder-boy and his side-kick, Hilldebeast sort of blew it big time over the last month in Benghazi, Pakistan, Egypt, Tunisia, etc., etc. (and don’t call me racist for my use of boy!!).
But finally someone in the mainstream media gets it! Unfortunately, it took a first-person near death, brutal gang-rape for Lara Logan to understand. This is her first interview a few months after that horrible night February 11, 2011 at Tahrir Square in Cairo as Spring was bursting out in the Middle East.
And it’s taken her longer-nearly 2 years to speak out against the lie and the narrative coming from Washington but these things have a way of building. Hopefully (damn, he’s ruined that word!) conservatives, patriots and every one in the military, connected to the military (friends, family, neighbors . . . ) what may be the one thing to ruin Obama’s re-election, are his proposed budget cuts for active-duty military personnel and military retirees – but not civilian defense workers.
Obama has tipped his hand. He’s showing the entire country what he thinks about our military service people – the people who risk their lives for their country are worth less than civilian defense workers who push papers around in Washington.

Your prayers are too late and sad to say, as far as I know no Navy SEALS were involved in a rescue attempt this time. Thirty ships and more than 660 hostages is the score to date, not to mention the $9.5 million or so in ransom.
The four American sailors hijacked off the Somali coast have been killed by the pirates.
This is the first time U.S. citizens have been killed in the several years this piracy has been taking place.
According to Jihad Watch the slain Americans have been identified as Jean and Scott Adam, of Marina del Rey California, and Phyllis Macay and Bob Riggle, of Seattle, Washington.
The question is, will this invite a military response? Doubtful the wimp Obama will react just because American lives have now been taken. These pirates are seen as a band of rogue Muslims who have hijacked the ‘religion of peace’ and strike out only as a desperate reaction to their poverty and lack of education, when in fact they are Islamic jihadists, dedicated to the same goals as Osama bin Laden and other jihadists around the world.
But American liberals (and the media) continue to promote the idea that Western and Islamic values are wholly compatible. Case in point, look how long it took CBS to report the brutal sexual attack on their own television reporter Lara Logan. This delusion not only leads to serious foreign policy mistakes—it has also cost lives right here in the U.S. (the Ft. Hood massacre comes to mind) and continues to embolden our enemy at home and abroad.
If you don’t believe it, start paying attention to the democracy evolving in Egypt and Libya. The world is a tinderbox and it’s anyone guess where it will lead next.
