...Tahrir Square when she was sexually assaulted by a mob on the night that Hosni Mubaraks government fell in Cairo.
Ms. Logan, a CBS News correspondent, was in the square preparing a report for 60 Minutes on Feb. 11 when the celebratory mood suddenly turned threatening. She was ripped away from her producer and bodyguard by a group of men who tore at her clothes and groped and beat her body. For an extended period of time, they raped me with their hands, Ms. Logan said in an interview with The New York Times. She estimated that the attack lasted for about 40 minutes and involved 200 to 300 men.
Ms. Logan, who returned to work this month, is expected to speak at length about the assault on 60 Minutes on Sunday night.
As the cameraman, Richard Butler, was swapping out a battery, Egyptian colleagues who were accompanying the camera crew heard men nearby talking about wanting to take Ms. Logans pants off. She said: Our local people with us said, Weve gotta get out of here. That was literally the moment the mob set on me.
She declined to go into more detail about the assault but said: What really struck me was how merciless they were. They really enjoyed my pain and suffering. It incited them to more violence.
After being rescued by a group of civilians and Egyptian soldiers, she was swiftly flown back to the United States. She was quite traumatized, as you can imagine, for a period of time, Mr. Fager said. Ms. Logan said she decided almost immediately that she would speak out about sexual violence both on behalf of other journalists and on behalf of millions of voiceless women who are subjected to attacks like this and worse.

What a surprise, the arab culture is not respectful of women.

You mean 200-300 Mooslum animals...
No sympathy for an arrogant and terminally dumb woman who thought her CBS pass was an important credential.
In addition to the theater medal she also got a shriveled heart medal for the wounds.
If a woman insists on going to the middle east to report on news there, she should be armed with weapons — yeah, guns, but also razor blades under her clothing, etc.
Liberal mindset. If I were her I'd be suing the living daylights out of her handlers and CBS.
how she c ould be oblivious to the mistreatment of women in moslem countries, i don’t understand.
it’s in the news almost everyday.
You are a pretty cold hearted dude.
Just trying to get this all straight: Is she claiming "rape" or is she claiming "rape rape"?
One might expect that the story of Lara Logan would awaken the left to the fact that millions of Muslims are barbarians. But one would be wrong. To a Muslim mutant Lara Logan and every other woman on earth is nothing more than sexual fodder.
If she was dressed like that they would have killed her.
For an extended period of time, they raped me with their hands,..... Sorry. What the hell does that mean? Did they feel her up? Did they “intercourse” her with fists? Did they diddle her with hand grenades? From the FIRST time this was posted, I asked “ What does the MSM consider sexual assault?” Is this a case of “one of ours got roughed up so it’s MUUUUUch more worse than anybody in a so-called Civilized country.” I hope you understand.
I think she meant to say i felt like i was going though the tsa screening
>> No sympathy for...
Except the animals that attacked her were falsely portrayed is an “Inspiring Democrat Movement”.
Surely ignorance was involved, but ignorance does not preclude the concern I have for her welfare, or any other motivated field personnel.
Her attackers should have been lined up and executed.
Hey what happened to my post ?
“Inspiring Democrat Movement”
“Inspiring Democratic Movement”
Ding~! Ding~! Ding~! WE HAVE A WINNER
Thanks for playing.
Sometimes it’s a good idea to not say anything, no matter how correct you may be.
