CBS correspondent Lara Logan recently spoke at the Better Government Association luncheon.

Money quote #1 comes at 12:39:

Our way of life is under attack, and if you think that’s government propaganda, if you think that’s nonsense, if you think that’s warmongering; you’re not listening to what the people who are fighting you say about this fight. In your arrogance, you think that you write the script, but you don’t.

Money quote #2 comes at 17:52:

If you fail to identify the the ideological component to this fight; if you fail to identify what your enemy is really fighting for; if you lie about who they really are; I don’t see how you can possibly have the right strategy.

It’s twenty minutes, and worth every bit of your time to watch it.  Make sure that this is seen by everyone you know.  It’s that important.
