Have you ever heard of Lara Logan? She was born in South Africa, and is a reporter for CBS “60 Minute.” She was also, while reporting about the so-called “Arab Spring” at Tarhir Square, Cairo, Egypt, gang raped by the “peaceful” demonstaters there. So she has credenials, has been there, and knows about what she speaks.
On October 2, 2012, Lara Logan spoke at the Better Government Association annual luncheon in Chicago, IL. She had her piece, “The Longest War,” run on September 30, 2012, on CBS 60 Minutes, that examined the Afghanistan war and llustrated the hazards that, 11 years after 9/11, still confront America. At the luncheon, she said, “I chose this subject because, one, I can’t stand, that there is a major lie being propagated …” She emphasized that “Eleven years later, ‘they’ still hate us, now more than ever. The Taliban and al-Qaida have not been vanquished. They’re coming back. The lie is that America’s military might has tamed the Taliban.”
For contrast, during his weekly radio address on May 5, President Barack Hussein Hubris “kill list” Obama said, “After more than a decade at war, it is time to focus on nation building here at home.” Obama also emphasized that “… the tide of the war has turned it’s time for the country to focus on domestic issues such as creating jobs.”
For further contrast, Obama, in November 2007, said, “The day I’m inaugurated the Muslim world will look at America differently.”
For even more contrast, while Obama has been president, the US favorability rating in the Middle East (Lebanon, Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, and Pakistan) is lower now than it was at the end of President Bush’s tenure as president.
And for even more contrast, the “spontaneous” attacks (read carefully planned by Islam Salafi with al-Qeida connections) in Egypt and Lybia were terrorist attacks on sovereign US territory.
So, does Obama really believe that his personality will prevail, that he can make Muslims like us, that (magically) terrorist attacks will not come here? The memory of 9/11, with over 3000 Americans killed, suggests otherwise. The memory of attacks in Egypt and Lybia, with four Americans killed, suggests otherwise. And the words of Laura Logan suggest otherwise.
But that’s just my opinion.
