FTN-Logan-Return After a six weeks away, CBS Chief Foreign Correspondent, Lara Logan, returned to Iraq and shared her stark observations with Bob Schieffer this morning on "Face The Nation." Logan spoke about the deteriorating conditions in Bagdad and the underlying theme coming out of Iraq; sectarian killings are down, but U.S. troop deaths are up and the number of attacks on our soldiers are on the rise.

Schieffer: "What's your assessment at this point, is it better, worse, or about the the same as when you left?"

Logan: "Well, I can tell you Bob, I've only been gone for about six weeks and just the drive from the airport into Baghdad itself was really visually disturbing. You could sense there is a dramatic change in the feeling in the city itself. It looks like a wasteland. The drive really reminded me of something out of Armageddon."
