True American Hero – Lara Logan

Many may remember Lara Logan’s ordeal during Egypt’s Arab Spring.  She was reporting on the uprising (supported by the Obama Administration) when she was attacked and raped multiple times.  I have to admit to knowing very little about her politics or her professional work.  Ms. Logan recently did a piece for CBS and 60 Minutes of all news outlets on terrorism.  Her findings shatter the Obama foreign policy of apology and appeasement [my words not hers].  The following are some quotes from a recent speech on terrorism followed by a video of the speech.  It is worth watching and while scary it is refreshing to see a reporter speaking truth rather than talking points.

No longer relegated to 60 Minutes or Dateline NBC to nab crooks, perverts, and household scammers.  Extra-ordinary citizens have become empowered to expose corruption and lies that the main stream media will not.   Perhaps the worst type of people are those who present a public image, but when the “cameras” are off they expose themselves among friends and like-minded people.  Sometimes the “cameras”, microphones, or even cell phones are still recording and I would like to celebrate those who venture to expose the true feelings of elitists.  The weird thing about Bill Clinton was that I always had this feeling that he was this type of person, but I have been shocked that there had never been a smoking gun tape showing this.  Either he is genuine or is really good…I feel that he is really good.
