Lara Logan tells riveting untold story: My Benghazi report was buried to protect the Obama admin and Hillary

Lara Logan tells riveting untold story: My Benghazi report was buried to protect the Obama admin and Hillary


In 2013, then-CBS reporter Lara Logan had an investigative report on the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that was buried and “discredited,” reportedly due to the network’s mistaken vetting of one eyewitness’s account of the incident.

However, according to Logan, the report was disparaged because it was critical of the Obama administration’s failure to come to the defense of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and his compound when it was attacked by Islamist terrorists.

Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attack on September 11, 2012.

In a recent interview with Mark Levin of Fox News Channel’s “Life, Liberty and Levin,” Levin asked Logan about the Benghazi investigative report that ultimately resulted in her leaving CBS.

“Well, I will say this, there’s a lot more to that story than anybody knows,” Logan said. “But one of my favorite things to hear is all these media reporters and propagandists standing up and saying, ‘That wasn’t being politically targeted. That was a failure of journalism.'”

“Okay, so that’s the biggest joke of all,” she continued, “because there was not a failure of journalism in that story. It’s not good journalism that these propaganda groups weren’t out there. They’re not targeting you because they’re worried about the standard of your reporting. They’re targeting you — their stated objective — is that they’re going to eliminate anything that they view as a threat to their political ideology.”

“What they were trying to do was bury the substance of that story,” she added.

Logan went on to describe the horrific moment when Stevens and others realized that “the cavalry” wasn’t coming to help them.

“Greg Hicks, Chris Stevens’ deputy, looked at us on ’60 Minutes’ and he said what he had said on ‘the Hill’ but it was much more powerful in our cameras when he said that he asked the defense attache, just a few minutes into that attack, if the cavalry was coming. The defense attache looked at him … [Hicks was] the last person to speak to Chris Stevens. When Chris Stevens was under attack, a terrorist attack in his compound, he called Greg Hicks. Greg Hicks looked at the defense attache and he said, ‘well?’ [The defense attache responded] ‘I’m sorry, Greg, the cavalry ain’t coming.'”

She continued, “Greg Hicks said, ‘I felt sick in the pit of my stomach because those of us who go out on the end of the line for our country, we believe our country has our back,’ and in that minute, in that moment, I knew they didn’t.”

She said Hicks looked at the defense attache and said, “We better tell the boys at the annex.”

“Two of those boys died that night,” she said.

“That was an Al Qaeda terrorist attack that was extremely well-planned, timed for the 10th Anniversary of 9/11,” concluded Logan. “Those things, the substance of our reporting, is what the Obama administration and the progressive political movement, and Hillary Clinton’s propaganda force … that’s what they wanted buried, because it didn’t suit them politically to have the truth out about that.” (Note: it was actually the 11th anniversary.)

Talking about the way in which the Benghazi reporting she and her crew did was discredited, Logan said, “They picked the least important person in the story. They took two things he said and they cast it into doubt. It was called into question and then they made the story disappear.”

Logan said there had to be some serious digging to discredit her story.


“There was a lot of other significant reporting in there. Think of all those people trying to tear that piece to shreds and they were only able to cast doubt over two things one guy of the three characters had to say,” she said.

Logan believes she was silenced over something that didn’t ultimately matter that much to the overall story.

“The lesson I learned is that they’re not going to come after you for the things that matter. They’re going to come after you and use the things that don’t matter and they’re going to use that to bury the whole thing and silence you,” she said.
I've followed Lara Logan ever since she was attacked in Cairo during their horrendous take down of Mubarek. She was almost torn to pieces and was gang raped.

For those who don't remember read this, see below link. It's hard to read.
And Obama was all for those savages that did this.

I have a feeling the Obama legacy will wind up in a cesspool, along with Hillary.

The terrorist attack at Benghazi hasn't just been investigated it's been over-investigated by Republican lead Congressional committees and there's one thing we've learned.

There was nothing improper or inadequate in the response to the terrorist attack in Benghazi by the US government and our military.

Good grief Shiva there WAS NO "response" - no one came to the aid of those poor guys.
Nice of you to omit this part of the OP

Perhaps you are unaware but during the time of Benghazi, Lara was in Egypt suffering a gang rape by similar members of Islam.

They pulled her hair out by the roots, beat her with flag poles and gang raped her. Meanwhile in Benghazi, members of the same aligned group of the religion of peace killed four Americans who found out at the very last minute, their President did not have their backs.

Our media, and our government of the time, LIED to the American people about the entire incident. And that my dear liberal Obama sycophant, is what has been tearing the USA apart.

And so NO, we will not give it a rest.

By 'we' I hope you're not including the troll who posted this.
That whole Benghazi-Benghazi thing was/is a political hacking tool. It certainly did its job on you.
Your masters preach that the 'other' is evil. stirring up violence and mistrust.
Dang! What a key hole you are. I wish you'd wake the heck up.

Pretty much....

Benghazi was all about CIA black ops that went bad....

Of course none of that is official and what we were actually doing there will never be revealed...

But, it makes perfect political fodder for Trumplicans as per usual...
