CBS news hottie Lara Logan could be in hot water for swiping souvenirs from the wreckage of bombed-out Baghdad.
In a video profile of the “60 Minutes” star called “Lara Logan’s Spoils of War,” mementos from Iraq and Afghanistan are shown in her Washington office.
“The prize pieces are . . . pre-Iraq invasion portraits of Saddam Hussein. In one [he’s] shown in military fatigues. Logan told us she found it in pieces, in the ruins of the Olympic committee building after it was bombed,” reports Marisa Guthrie of Broadcasting & Cable, the media industry publication that produced the online piece.
“A second portrait recovered from the ruins of a shelled palace in Baghdad shows a paternal Saddam surrounded by a group of adoring children, Hovering above the scene is the disembodied head of a stern-looking elderly woman . . . which Logan says is Saddam’s mother.”
Taking such items out of the country is considered theft under a federal provision designed to protect Iraqi heritage. One former Fox News engineer has already been prosecuted and placed on probation for smuggling paintings from Iraqi palaces. Other journos have been warned.
