Despicable: CBS News Reporter Lara Logan Sexually Assaulted & Beaten by Group of Egyptian Men During Anti-Mubarak, Freedom Protests
PEACE AND FREEDOM???
On the very day that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down, we learn that CBS’ foreign correspondent Lara Logan was covering the story in Tahrir Square for a “60 Minutes,” was separated from her news crew, surrounded by a group of men and savagely sexual assaulted and beaten. She was flown back to the United States and is in a New York hospital recovering. Little more is being said.
In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning. She is currently home recovering.
In a word, sickening! Has their ever been a news event that was supposed to be based on freedom where so many journalist covering the story were put in danger and attacked? Lara Logan had earlier been detained in Egypt. I have to agree with Jammie Wearing Fool regarding … so this is how peace loving Egyptians celebrate their freedom from a dictator, with a good old fashion “gang rape” of an American female infidel.
What might be just as sickening, from NRO comes a report of the reaction to Logan’s assault from a fellow at the NYU Center for Law and Security, Nir Rosen.
But let’s just remember one thing going forward: Nir Rosen believed this was the right moment to let the world know that he “ran out of sympathy for her” and that we should “remember her role as a major war monger” and that we “have to find humor in the small things.”
