CBS USED her, and then FAILED to report the story.

CBS = DNC Agenda as faux News.

"She’s lucky she wasn’t beheaded for infidelity afterwards by the islamic savages."

That, or like in Iran, she would get raped again by an uncle because she dishonored the family by being raped, then she would get stoned to death.

Nukes come to my mind....

SOOOOO, the Egyptian SOLDIERS saved her!! I thought all of the media condemned the soldiers for being so mean to the democratic protestors!!! BLAH!

Greg Palkot also got saved by soldiers by getting into their TANK!!

These soldiers are paid for by US, we've trained them and it sounds like they saved two lives.

They've been there for well over a thousand years, so it's not a case of getting there.

This business of having women go into the middle of all male mobs of primitive Moslems is one of the stupider things our network moguls have gotten into.

She was apparently born in Durban South Africa. She has seen what happens to a country I guess.

If she is still a leftist, then she is a true believer.

The feminist rewrote the law up here in Canada. From a glancing touch all the way up to rape and everything in between are consider sexual assaults. So the rapist and butt pincher are both treated exactly the same in a court of law.

So after all the brainwashing up here, I'm not sure if the CBS reporter was raped or fondled or what?

She has been embedded with U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq for years, and criticized the Rolling Stone "expose" of Gen. McChrystal.

She met her husband in Iraq, he is a U.S. defense contractor from Texas. She is South African.

This was a horrible assault and the perps should be “sewn into the carcass of a rotting pig and then buried alive”. (From one of those 1940’s movies about the English Army on the Indian subcontinent - Gunga Din, perhaps?)

That being said, I’ll bet these female reporters will look at Tea Party gatherings in a whole new, and better, light.

Unbridled democracy in action.

There are good reasons why our Founding Fathers crafted a Constitutional Republic and gave us a nation of laws as opposed to mob rule.

That’s true they usually do brutal and sustained sexual assaults and beatings on animals (donkeys, goats, dogs etc) or little boys.

Guess they’re coming out of the dark ages..

A horrible turn of events. . .truly, outrageous. OTOH. . .have to say; in looking at pic before her attack, she is wearing a bit of neckline here which is noticeable even with jacket. And of couse, these animals were celebrating their freedom, right?

All to sickening. Do hope Libs see the bigger pic here; but doubt they will.

The management of CBS news should be fired en masse for this.

The Koran openly, and without question, states that Muslims are allowed to rape non-believers, even in front of their husbands.

Yet CBS news sent in a woman to a fundamentalist Muslim country that had weeks ago broken out into lawlessness. Reporters had already been attacked and savagely beaten.

I hope CBS News management can continue to find comfort in political correctness. The Muslims are clearly responsible for the gang rape, but the CBS News management knowingly put her in danger.

The fact the rebellion in Egypt consists of islamic rapists did not fit the media template.

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

And I pointed out at the same time that they were operating on their little ideological myth about "freedom fighters" instead of realizing this was the real deal, and their "celebrity" meant nothing to these people. You'd think that any rational management, having seen what happened to Katie when she ventured into a crowd, would have confined their reporters to the hotel balcony.

Ignorant people, thinking their little elitist bubble would protect them, and blundering into a situation they had no business being anywhere near. Sadly, Lara paid the price for their stupidity.

I think the problem is that even most of the news media bought into the “democratic rebellion” nonsense. This was actually a bizarre Islamist/leftist attack engineered by the nutzo US left (Bill Ayers/Code Pink) and US-supported radical Muslims (MB and Obama).

Bill Ayers and Jodie Whatever from Code Pink were actually there in Egypt, and Obama and his minions were frantically telegraphing support for the MB.

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

Stupid is as stupid does. She was, and is so ignorant she put herself in peril and paid the price.

The question of the day is will she learn from this or is she just another leftist who has no real education and thus try to blame everyone else for her error?

Not only should the entire management of CBS be fired en masse, but CBS should be sued right out of business.
CBS knew the risks. They, like all of the msm, have fully capable research departments who find out everything -the weather, waterborne diseases, accommodations, languages ...... and the “code of the hills” of any given location they send news crews to. And they know exactly what the risks are. They know what it says in the Koran.

They, along with the rest of the msm, have skewed, covered up, and lied to the public about these animals and what they do in the name of Islam for a long time now. If you want proof, just read the various Israeli online media, and take a good, long, hard look at the photographs in those articles, and you begin to understand exactly what our media has been covering up. The question is “WHY”. and it is time to demand answers.

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.

She's almost 40, and has been a reporter her whole adult life. She should know the risks by now.

Yes. . .but not her and CBS crew first encounter w/trouble as they covered the events in Cairo. You probably remember:

Lara Logan Detained By Egyptian Police Feb 03, 2011 · CBS News chief foreign affairs correspondent Lara Logan has been detained, along with her crew, by Egyptian police. . .

The media can protect; and it does; when it is their own. That said; think she needed protection of time and do not begrudge her getting it.

While the 'celebrating' was going on; did wonder, how it was that any news media would be in the thick of it - reporting. No way, could that mob be construed as 'safe'; and no 'reason' to imagine otherwise.

No woman is EVER at fault for being raped. No woman ever “asks for it”, regardless of the way they dress or behave. ANYONE who thinks that way has a very twisted sense of right and wrong.

This woman was brutalized in the most disgusting, painful and humiliating way a woman can be. She may have survived physically, but the mental terror will be there for the rest of her life.

As for the Egyptians? SUUUURE, they were trying to protest their third world country lives, oust Mubarek and get themselves some freedom and democracy. Uh huh. These are the same people who told Christiane Amanpour that they hated her because she was American. They hate all Americans. But they’re too stupid to get that Amanpour is not American. But I’m splitting hairs here.

What they want is for Islam to take over the world and be able to rape women, commit honor killings, brutalize and subjugate all that they see as their “property” and murder Jews and Christians without pesky things like laws, human rights or the outcry of civilized people getting in their way.

Now if they wanted TRUE freedom and democracy, I might could support them. However, when you let whatever religious sect who is more brutal come to power and tell you how to think, act, when to pray, etc., you get the same dictatorship with a new face.

I read an article a couple decades ago written by a pragmatic feminist. She lamented that while in College summer break some of her male friends went to Egypt and could spend the night In some secluded areas around the Pyramids and that, as a woman, she could never safely do that.

And occasionally a reporter learns the job does involve risk when reporting stories in areas where human life is cheaper than what they are used to. And as a woman there lie even greater risks then await men. Add that this is a heavily muslim culture and only a fool would send an American female reporter into that hell-hole.

Even in the US, there are some neighborhoods you best avoid.

Kinda like the white male that walks through the south side projects in Chicago is not asking to be robbed and beaten. But I’m gonna avoid it myself. Just seems prudent.

Apparently NOT TRUE in any backwards mooslims world. This reporter should have known better and told CBS to shove it.

I did not say she asked for it. I believe it is her bosses’ fault. I am devasted for her.

While it is never a womans fault for sexual attack, there is a chance for adult healthy women to be prudent. For example, not to walk into a sleazy bar alone wearing a see through top and tight skirt with sly high heels at 1:00 am.

But any child, or elderly, or handicapped woman (or man) cannot use prudence and really has no responsibility herself. A reporter and especially her boss should not have put a publicly dressed blonde American in that mess, especially after the male reporters were viciously attacked.
