Lara Logan, CBS "60 Minutes," October 12, 2007

Lara Logan traveled to Blackwater headquarters in North Carolina for this revealing interview aired on October 12, 2007. Her "60 Minutes" program is the first to reveal photos of Blackwater vehicles struck by bullets from shooters at Nisoor Square in Baghdad on September 16, 2007.

She asked a lot of tough questions and expressed healthy journalistic skepticism. She also showed a lot of material that reflected positively on the company. That balance is intolerable for critics, who heaped her website with vicious emails. She probably could use some support from the public. To post on her website, click here.
