    CBS News' Lara Logan Taking Leave Of Absence Over Discredited '60 Minutes' Benghazi R

    It's unbelievable that CBS's 60 Minutes program which has such a great tradition for it's investigative reports put on a show that has been discredited. Dylan Davies was interviewed on the show and told a completely different story than he told the FBI. This is clearly a stain on the reputation of 60 Minutes and CBS. Read the memos from Jeff Fager Chairman, CBS News Executive Producer, 60 Minutes and Al Ortiz Executive Director of Standards and Practices CBS News at the link below.

    NEW YORK -- Jeff Fager, chairman of CBS News and executive producer of '"60 Minutes," informed staff Tuesday that Lara Logan and her producer, Max McClellan, would be taking a leave of absence following an internal report on the news magazine's discredited Oct. 27 Benghazi report.

    “As Executive Producer, I am responsible for what gets on the air,” Fager wrote in a memo obtained by The Huffington Post. “I pride myself in catching almost everything, but this deception got through and it shouldn’t have.”

    On the Oct. 27 broadcast, Logan interviewed Dylan Davies, a security officer who claimed that he witnessed the terrorist attack on the Benghazi compound that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans on Sept. 11, 2012. Davies, who had trained Libyan security guards for the State Department, claimed he scaled a 12-foot wall that night, knocked out a terrorist with his rifle and later saw Stevens dead in the hospital.

    Considering the story rested on the documents, it -- never mind; totally lost on you, and also the fact the Benghazi report fails in pretty much exactly the same way.

    Not the point, anyway. I don't think it takes much to see that point.

    So how come you didn't get some time in the shade? This would be the Obama example of leadership.
