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.
“Again, I am not blaming her but her bosses who put her in this predicament”
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.
I am sorry as well. I pray that God hold her in the palm of His hand and protect her.
I hope she sues CBS for a gazillion dollars.
Is this why Christian Omanpour (sp) worked so successfully in the Arab world for so long?
