Stripped, punched and whipped with flag poles: Full horror of Lara Logan's attack emerges
Daily Mail ^ | 02/20/11

Posted on 02/20/2011 7:23:33 PM PST by BunnySlippers

According to one source, reported in The Sunday Times newspaper, sensitive parts of her body were covered in red marks that were originally thought to have been bite marks.

After further examination they were revealed to be from aggressive pinching.

And medical sources have revealed  that marks on her body were consistent with being whipped and beaten with the makeshift poles that were used to fly flags during the demonstration.

The US media will never report the horror that Logan went through in Cairo.

I have little sympathy. She was running around over there in their culture with her head uncovered. That means she is a prostitute in the moslem world. Come home and do the weather channel. She should sue somebody for letting her go into the Tahrir square with 100% men,over heated by Sahria state possibilities. Who let her do that?

I imagine that she will soon be moving - now that the idiots at the paper saw fit to sprint a photo of her house.

Absolutely no need of it for the story but puts here at further risk.

She will have enough nightmares and fears for the rest of her life without worrying about anyone being able to hunt here down in her home.

Idiots.

I will never understand the msm’s infatuation with mudslimes.

What happened to Ms. Logan is a prelude of what would happen to all of them should sharia become widespread.

Do they have a death wish or what?

Most of the people of the ME and afghanistan are barbarians whose mindset is 8th or 9th century living with the tech of the 21st century.

The only cure for islam is a full dose of U-235 at critical mass.

They have a death wish for our culture. A fantasy of the Westerner being under boot of Third World “victims” of Imperialism. But they imagine that, somehow, they and their ilk will remain untouched by it all.

Egyptian state media had been publishing negative stories about foreign journalists, with many reports alleging that many Israeli spies were masquerading as news crews.

Days before her attack, Miss Logan had been held in Alexandria on suspicion of being [w/ ?] foreign spies.

The mooselimb animlas who did this have been raised to behave this way. It is the typical mindset for the demonically inspired religioon of mo ham head. And these vermin are destroying their own children by raising them to be even more demonic in their behavior, especially if they perceive they deal with a Jew. Think of the evil these vermin are perpetrating into the next generation! To train little children to hate and lust for the blood of Jews and Americans! It is beginning to come clear why God direct Joshua to totally annihilate certain cultures. We are reaping world-wide the fruit of not doing as told in ancient times.

The animals inspired by the satanic religion of islam did this to her.
Islam is a cut and paste cult from the pre-existing religion (truth) of Christianity to gain some type of political control in the region at that time. These useful idiots of Satan are pushing hard right now to create the Devil's caliphate.

Jesus said: Go and sin no more.
The Islamists say: Stone her(the rape victim) to death.

I think the MSM is not infatuated with muslims, but deathly afraid of them. They have always come down on side of the lawless minority, and the lawless minority are always the most violent.

They're a den of cowards.

Here's the problem. Your post seems to imply that she should have had her head covered, and because she didn't she got what she deserved.

I suggest that you clearly explain what you meant to say here.

Timmy, when I was young, I traveled in Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. We were traveling by bus. Especially in Tehran, we walked the streets in a group, girls in the center, totally surrounded by the young men we were traveling with. They could not keep us safe. They could not protect us from all the groping hands.
In many of those places, the idea of walking alone was terrifying, because the air wreaked of danger. We knew that kids that wandered off the beaten path, disappeared.
We were foolish to be there at all. And those were peaceful times.
From my experience, I can't imagine any Western woman being in Egypt during a riot and not knowing she was in extreme danger. Lara had spent a lot of time in the Middle East.
She shouldn't have been outside at all. Look again, at the news photos...no women, not even in burkas.
I guess Lara thought she was invincible. Very foolish, indeed.

A. No one “let” her do that. In the journalism that she and Anderson Cooper, et. al., practice - it’s in her personal (i.e. career) interest, and in ratings, do go to a location like that and explicitly take risks. I think it’s pretty awful, but I also think she knew what was possible where she was going to kick her sensationalist career in sensational journalism up a notch. So, there are limits to the shock one can experience over this.

Ummm, are you saying our male reporters shouldn't be able to have a Bible in their luggage? You know that 'offends' Muslims.

Muslims also don't like men drinking alcohol - should male reporters 'respect' that Muslim crap too?

Westerners MUST STAND UP TO MUSLIMS. We have the right to draw cartoons - we have the right to worship as we please - we have the right to create and follow sane laws. Our women are not slaves.

If women reporters have to have two American men with them, so be it. Our press can't afford to be bullied by Muslims - not our men - not our women...

You're wrong because you don't give in to idiot rapists. The MSM can afford to protect their women reporters. They need to do that - they don't need to 'give in' to "muslim sensibilities'. We need to stand up to Muslims MORE, not less.

Your statement is perfectly clear and true. In the Moslem’s mind, a woman uncovered is a prostitute, especially if she is Western. Lara had to know that.
A good, close up view of those men, and the cold, inhuman look in their eyes is the scariest sight I have ever seen.

Of couse, Logan is “the media,” as well. Would you have considered her part of “the enemy” last week, bfore this was actually reported in the media?

Let’s see how “the media” treats this. Already today there are reports that Logan wants to go back to work and discuss what happened to her. If it’s her story, then we will hear it coming from CBS News first.

Certainly, after all Logan has suffered, she deserves the exclusive to it.

Witnesses say the mainly peaceful protests to end Mubarak's rule had taken a more violent turn after the Egyptian president announced his resignation. The military presence controlling the amount of people entering Tahrir Square seemed to evaporate, and an angrier element had flowed in.

Oh, I see now, it was not the peace loving people that protested that did this, but new people coming out from under some rug.

There was a discussion a prior thread about the sexual assault and if it was rape. I posted this possibility:

"I haven’t read a time line yet, so it could well be that what happened was that the men beat her while forcefully grabbing her breasts, buttocks and vagina."

I’m reminded of a saying “when in Rome ...”

I think most reporters by and large think a reporter ID card grants them immunity, and in a western civilized nation they would be right. I think most reporters also assume that all Muslims like them because the press in general gives Muslims favorable coverage, certainly the US press does. Of course, the reporters are wrong on both counts.

So, it’s possible to sympathize with Logan, which I do, but also ask what was she thinking when she went there? It isn’t Main Street USA or a street in Baghdad patroled by US troops. From the Muslim point of view, she got what she derserved, and to make that observation doesn’t make anyone callous. If you agree with the Muslim point of view, that’s another matter.

If you make a trip to Rome, it’s best to understand Roman culture and “ ... do as the Romans do” or at the least not offend them. Hopefully, she will recover and others won’t make the same mistake.

I’m a grandmother. If you want to call me a jerk, that’s fine with me.
Women in this country do not appreciate how safe, protected, and respected they are compared to the rest of the world.
Most people in this country have never seen Moslem men in their natural setting. Calling them animals is an insult to animals. Look how they treat the women in their own families!
In the Middle East it is natural for men to rape women. It is not safe for any woman to be out and about and not protected!
Why do you not climb into a snake pit and take a nap? Because it’s dangerous, and you know that before you climb into the pit.
In the Middle East it is a man’s world, and any woman who does not want to be abused or killed soon understands that.
It’s a whole different world, with a totally different set of rules.

Ah, a multicultural troll! You respect them and their definition of a prostitute, do you? You wouldn't be from Cambridge, would you? Or, more likely, P-town? Or perhaps Northampton (if you work that side of the street)?

You need to learn that not all cultures are created equal. That not all cultures are worthy of respect. That some cultures are more equal than others.

There is absolutely no reason we should respect the culture of the sand nazis!

I don’t even want to follow the whole thread here....
It’s just so OBVIOUS that she was courting trouble. Now, for those who need clarification: It was a bad thing.

ONE really bad thing is her employer didn’t protect her, and if they couldn’t guarantee her safety, she should not have been there.
And yes, I lived in the Middle East.

What bothered me the most is the total naivety of the western media. What SANE person would allow a blond American into such a frenzy. And yes, I said it: A blond.

I just sent my daughter over to Europe, and I told her that she should be very careful where she speaks English. I am not joking. We travel a lot, and the good old days when a US passport was a plus are long over.

Of course, any sign of Jewishness: a star-of-David necklace, Yamulka, or whatnot must be hidden, but almost to the same level do we hide our ‘American’ identity.

I just moved back from Europe around a year ago, and for those who have not been there since 9/11... it’s a different world..

Hi!
please read my above post.

There was this beautiful article that I read about two girls visiting the Middle East who ended up hitch-hiking and got picked up by an Arab who decided to take them back to his village.

He gets home and goes to his front door. His father opens the door, sees these two American girls and totally FREAKS OUT on them!! HOW COULD YOU GET INTO A CAR WITH A STRANGE MAN!
Don’t you care about your souls! Where are your parents! Have you no values?!

He then took them back to their tour leader and they both made major changes in their life-views.

I have the article.

The problem with your average Western journalist — male or female — is they have is unassailable “bubble of invincibility” that wards of all manner if evil because (wait for it) they are JOURNALISTS and are immune to the real world. Consider this incident from the civil wars raging in the Balkans.

A news crew was driving very fast past some high rise buildings that had been badly shot-up by small arms and light artillery fire. They were on a four lane road and were taking some occasional sniper rounds. The news crew, local driver, reporter, and camera/sound man pulled off the highway for some footage. They stopped under the overhanging facade of a shot-up hotel and started filming.

A French news crew arrived and started doing the same thing. The French female reporter thought that the lighting wasn't right for her or some other stupid reason. She backed out from under the overhang and into the open — completely exposed to anyone in the surrounding high rises.

The news crews told her her to come back, but she knew what was better for her. There was a shot and a 198-grain 7.92x57 bullet hit her in the head killing her instantly. So much for your bubble of invincibility Ms. Journalist. You are now positively, completely, and irrevocably DEAD.
