Weeks ago when male reporters were being beaten I said there is no reason for them to be there.

It's INEXCUSABLE for a blonde female to be there in the midst of these savages! Maybe now she knows the true face of Mooselimbs.

Under Sharia, any unveiled woman is presumed to be a prostitute.

That’s where Egypt is headed now

This story has none of the good times feel that came with Anderson Cooper being slapped about like a house servant.

CBS is already trying to spin this as an aberration -— “wild element” -— instead of the true face of islam turned lose on the world.

This is horrible and sad and I am very sorry she went through this. Thank G-d she is alive.

I do NOT want to blame her but I blame her bosses: I was told before landing in Egypt (or any middle east country) to dress covered and modest, not hijab, but just modest from collarbone to lower legs. She was not dressed this way, and as a fellow blonde, you get a LOT of unwanted attention anyway even if you are dressed appropriately. I am not sure she was the right reporter for the job. Political correctness ruled over her safety. It’s like not wading through the shark tank with a bleeding wound.

Again, I am not blaming her but her bosses who put her in this predicament.

I thought these were freedom fighters, just looking for jobs and to create a Democracy?

Savages. Of course, we were called racists for that description. At least we can count one convert back to reality. Unfortunately, she had to be gang-sodomized to figure it out.

Thanks Obama

If your boss told you to wade through a shark tank while bleeding would you do it?

She made a poor decision as did all of those around her. She did it for the story though.

I’m glad she made it out alive and hopefully she recovers. I’m sure it had to be terrifying.

No, not only under Sharia. This is true in ANY Islamic country. As was explained to us students by an expert (and Muslim woman), especially us girls, before we landed in Egypt, a woman on the street is either PUBLIC or PRIVATE, in the eyes of Muslim men.

To be a PRIVATE woman, you need to be in a group, or accompanied by a man. You need to be appropriately modestly dressed. And even then, when they can SEE you are a foreigner, it still might not pass muster unless you have a man with you.

To be considered a PUBLIC woman is, as we were told, like being considered a prostitute. Men feel they have EVERY RIGHT to touch or molest you on the street. This is what happened to us in Egypt - we were young and American looking, even though we were dressed modestly, and men did try to grab us all the time. We fared better in the company of male students. Although one male buddy of mine was offered many camels for me and I am just glad he didn't take the offer.

This lady is not know for her common sense.

If you recall, the NY Post credited Freepers for breaking the “NEWS BABE’S ‘IRAQI TRYST’ IN-BEDDED REPORTER ‘TOOK MY HUBBY’” story

Where Lara Logan was having two lovers in Bagdad and broke up someone’s marriage.

Lawyers should be DROOLING at the chance.

To the person who said it's still her fault for taking the assignment: I don't know how bright she is. They would have had to explain the risks to her. If she did agree to be an Amanpour, then she does take the blame. But if she was merely sent into the shark's mouth, they must take the fault.

Well, according to Whoppi, rape of young girls by movie producers, etc... is kind of like a known inconvenience and not really “rape, rape!”

So, I figure she thinks that a news reporter being raped during a riot for democracy would not be “rape, rape” as you have to figure this could happen as a part of your job.

I feel sorry for this woman, but she decided to put her career above her own safety. Again, I am sorry it happened, and I hope her attackers have a very painful memory of this as they ROT in HELL!

Given that she was attacked by muslims, it can be assumed that she was SODOMIZED as well. It is their modus operandi to send a message to the infidel.

Laura wasn’t the only one. I believe CNN had people assaulted. Plus, FOX’s Greg Palcot and Oleg Wiig barely escaped with their lives. There were 300 killed. But according to the news the protests were spontaneous and peaceful.

No, that’s because she was an agent for Islamist governments, and they provided her protection.

Especially with the young boys that their prophet was so fond of.
