Pundit & Pundette: Video: Lara Logan on the Obama administration's "major lie" about Afghanistan and terrorism [updated]
This is basically an update to this post, which was the first time I ever introduced a topic which I considered to be not "child-safe". Ironic, when you consider that no one needs to be more aware of this kind of thing in our world than the children.......After all, they are going to grow up with this going on if we don't stop it soon.
I was so glad to see it, and hope that Lara can get the attention of the few who remain ignorant of world events. I mean, this is very serious. American's have been killed and then their bodies have been dragged through the streets. And we have done nothing. We couldn't even manage to get a team to investigate to the scene for 3 weeks. In fact, CNN did, and managed to grab the ambassadors diary, which they then read on air. You might think this would have made the powers that be start to tell the truth. That would make sense and the urge to believe is seductive, but we need to focus on the cold, hard truth. The cold, hard truth is that our government decided to cover it up with a story they thought we were stupid enough to believe. Some us, God help us, WERE stupid enough to believe it.
This woman has learned her lesson, the HARD WAY, and still lives to tell the truth. Basically, her message is "Who are you going to believe? Me or this lying administration?"
And let us not forget what is really going on in the world right now, despite an extremely ludicrous attempt to blame this on some movie trailer, which went on for 3 weeks, by this administration. What was the word the Libyan president used? Ah, yes, "prepostorous". Perfect.
The house of cards is collapsing faster than the Arab Spring, which is saying something! Also, check here to find some comfort. At least the wheels have started to turn. Kudos to Trey Gowdy. Let's hope his attitude catches on and multiplies.
I salute you, Lara, you have my undying admiration for continuing to stand strong and report the truth, and my undying thanks for it. I thank you on behalf of women everywhere, and the girls who will grow up to become the women of tomorrow. You have been in my prayers and will continue to be. I wish I could send you a present. It would be an assault rifle, for the peace I know it would bring you. God bless you, and the rest of us too. Let's hope that we never see this on American soil, but if we do, let us be prepared to defend ourselves.
