Lara Logan and her producer have been suspended for interviewing a witness whose testimony during the 60 Minutes expose on Benghazi differed from the FBI intake report. Ms. Logan said she made a mistake by airing this interview and she apologized publicly more than once.
The 60 Minutes report was a hard hitting piece with an anti-Obama message. Is it possible that an undoubtedly angry president looked for a way to debunk this story which damaged his credibility? He has been seen as vindictive towards opponents on many occasions.
The CBS news chair suspended Logan and her producer for an unspecified length of time. The Chair is the one who okayed the report in the first place. He should have suspended himself.
After the 60 Minutes report aired, the FBI intake report with Mr. Davies mysteriously showed up at CBS. It indicated that there were conflicting stories told by Dylan Davies aka Morgan Jones. He was the key witness for the 60 Minutes report because he claimed to have new information.
How do we know this FBI report is truthful? Why do we believe them over Davies? Holder runs the DOJ and he is not known for his veracity.
Davies lied to his superiors about being at the mission that night. He said he was not supposed to be there and that is why he lied. CBS says that should have been a warning sign for Logan.
CBS said Davies had given “varying and conflicting accounts of his story.” Davies was also hawking a book about Benghazi which was not revealed during the interview.
CBS also said Logan should not have done the report in the first place because it was a conflict of interests. She accused the U.S. government of lying about the attack prior to the airing of the Benghazi report.
The government obviously did lie. We all know they lied.

Lara Logan is an outstanding reporter with tremendous integrity. She is also very courageous. She almost died in Egypt when she was assaulted by a couple hundred men while she was covering the revolution for CBS.

What if the FBI lied? Why did CBS have an FBI report? The Congress can’t even get that information but CBS can? Why do we believe the FBI over Mr. Davies? I think this needs to be met with some measure of skepticism.
