When's the Last Time You Saw a Dead American Soldier
In an Interview by The Daily Show's Jon Stewart CBS News chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan told Stewart she'd "blow her brains out" if forced to watch what passes for TV news coverage in America. She goes on to tell him that she was once asked by a reporter, "Do you feel responsible for the American public having a bad view, a negative view of the War in Iraq?"
She asked the reporter, " Tell me the last time you saw the body of a dead American Soldier? What does the look like? Who in America knows what that looks like? I know what that looks like and I feel responsible for the fact that no one else does....and the soldiers do feel forgotten."
This video has only a 100,000 views this morning but it moves a range of emotions and is funny, sexy, sad and disturbing.
I'm not sure if it will go past a million views but it does provoke a thought process about how desensitize Americans are to the War.
