And she is pulling no punches in regards to Islamists, Nice Deb has the story
Via Dan Riehl, who thinks “the suits” at CBS will be none too thrilled with correspondent, Lara Logan’s Keynote speech at the Better Government Association annual luncheon in Chicago, last week, after the call they’ll likely get from the Obama White House….
Laura Washington of the Chicago Sun-Times described her speech to the roughly 1,100 influentials from government, politics, media, and the legal and corporate arenas as “provocative”, “ominous and frightening”:
She arrived in Chicago on the heels of her Sept. 30 report, “The Longest War.” It examined the Afghanistan conflict and exposed the perils that still confront America, 11 years after 9/11.
Eleven years later, “they” still hate us, now more than ever, Logan told the crowd. The Taliban and al-Qaida have not been vanquished, she added. They’re coming back.
“I chose this subject because, one, I can’t stand, that there is a major lie being propagated . . .” Logan declared in her native South African accent.
The lie is that America’s military might has tamed the Taliban.
“There is this narrative coming out of Washington for the last two years,” Logan said. It is driven in part by “Taliban apologists,” who claim “they are just the poor moderate, gentler, kinder Taliban,” she added sarcastically. “It’s such nonsense!”
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.
Lots more at the link. This is an enemy that must be exterminated, you cannot eliminate them by waging a PC war. You must be brutal, and take every opportunity to strike them. And yes, you must be willing to use every weapon at your disposal.
