CBS reporter Lara Logan stepped out of the role of journalist, and into the role of American citizen screaming about her government’s lies regarding the enemy her country faces – the Taliban.
From the Chicago Sun-Times:
“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 then goes on to rip what she calls “Taliban apologists” in Washington who have tried to falsely portray the enemy as ‘kinder’ and ‘gentler’.
“It’s such nonsense,” she added.
Logan believes the false narrative is an attempt by the administration to get America out of the longest war, but that it only provides a false sense that the perils of the enemy are in the past.
It’s a rather frightening account from somebody in the know.
Logan concludes, “Our enemies are writing the story, and there’s no happy ending for us.”
