    Lara Logan's keynote speech at the 2012 BGA Annual Luncheon seems to be getting mixed reviews. While some admire her for fighting to enlighten American citizens on events as she saw them, others are outraged by her spiel, calling it an unneeded cry for war. People who subscribe to the latter belief are even saying that she "forgot she was a journalist."

    Was wondering what everyone here though about it..... Did she go too far by trying to entice fear and suggesting military action? As a journalist, should she stick to reporting facts and leave her own personal beliefs out of the public eyes?
