**Bumped Up: Here’s audio of her complete address. She starts out immediately with the indictment of Obama’s foreign policy “”I knew that we were being lied to, I knew the American people were being misled…”

Logan slams Washington, but we all know the policies she indicts in this speech are Obama’s policies. This woman has been through a lot, thank goodness she chose to go back to work and be honest about the trajectory we’re on. Going on the record about this nation being lied to about the status of our enemy and our position in the world is nothing short of heroic. Here’s a snippet, but please do click through and read the whole thing.

Chicago Sun Times: Reporter Lara Logan brings ominous news from Middle East

This was no ordinary rubber chicken affair. That was my reaction to the extraordinary keynoter at Tuesday’s Better Government Association annual luncheon.

Lara Logan, a correspondent for CBS’ “60 Minutes,” delivered a provocative speech to about 1,100 influentials from government, politics, media, and the legal and corporate arenas. Such downtown gatherings are a regular on Chicago’s networking circuit…

Her ominous and frightening message was gleaned from years of covering our wars in the Middle East. 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!”

She made a passionate case that our government is downplaying the strength of our enemies in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as a rationale of getting us out of the longest war. We have been lulled into believing that the perils are in the past: “You’re not listening to what the people who are fighting you say about this fight. In your arrogance, you think you write the script.”

Our enemies are writing the story, she suggests, and there’s no happy ending for us.

    Hi nana, are you signed in twice? you also need to sign in to the WordPress site.

    I usually do this:

    1. go to http://www.tammybruce.com/wp-login.php
    sign in with the wordpress user name and password you and Gina worked out.
    2. from the wordpress site in the upper left hand corner is a pull down that gets you back to the tammy site.
    3. sign in on the tammy site.

    first couple of times it seems strange, but it becomes 2nd nature after awhile.

    once you get that down, you can also join in on the Chat Room during the broadcast :)

    Why do I have the feeling that missing “W” key caps will be the least of our problems in January? This crowd of Chicago thugs is capable of anything. We will have to hope there isn’t a house fire to hide missing stuff.

    Laura Logan is a brave woman for being willing to state the truth.Many Americans blinded by celebrity and apathetic about world events may not heed her warnings, but at least a member of the left has seen the scary light and is trying to set things right.

    Do n9zf instructions above not work?

    I have found at times that both logins are needed and sometimes not. I don’t know why. I know that Tammy is trying to get to a one login site, but that day isn’t here.

  6. [...] Logan of CBS News stepped before a packed Chicago ballroom last week and attacked the American policy in Afghanistan and Libya, called for a ramped-up military campaign against [...]

    Most those CBS “reporters” in that room didn’t look happy hearing the truth. They are an arrogant crowd

    Has the United States done anything to send a message to the world that our Ambassidors will not be assassinated and dragged though the street? Ah, NO!

    Lara’s speech took my breath away, she had a message for our times and we cannot afford to ignore it. O’Bummer wants to ignore it, and crawl across the finish. He is so pathetic, and such a loser, freak. We need to get this socialist out of office ASAP…
