During brief remarks at the end of the hour correspondent Lara Logan said “60 Minutes” was misled and made a mistake in its reporting. Logan is the correspondent responsible for the Oct. 27 story. She had interviewed former security contractor Dylan Davies, who claimed he took part in fighting at the mission.
