On Friday February 11, the day Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS correspondent Lara Logan was covering the jubilation in Tahrir Square for a 60 MINUTES story when she and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy.
In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning. She is currently in the hospital recovering.
There will be no further comment from CBS News and Correspondent Logan and her family respectfully request privacy at this time.
[begin op comment]
Knew something was going on when she was not on air from here in US after returning to CONUS.
This rumor has been working for a few days, and was all but confirmed by the lack of comment or denials from anyone at Black Rock or West 57th.
Some may say Logan has a checkered past, but nothing deserves this!
When 3 CBS engineers were killed by a perp years ago, Rather went into a (well deserved) on-air outrage. This time, there will probably be nothing, because, Lord knows, we don’t want to upset the Â“Arab Street.Â” Source with many years in SWA says many Muslims will approve of this, because, it was an infidel getting what she deserved.
When will the rest of America wake up?
Funny, check how many articles on the net refer to this unfortunate young lady as a “sex pot” (and “so-called journalist” to boot.)
Oh, yes, sympathy we all have, but also brains and an ability to reason.
How horrible! Thank goodness for the women and soldiers who saved her. Unbelievable.
I wouldn’t be surprised on any of it.
Likely taking her life as hideously as possible was their intent.
I really don’t know if I believe here story about being sexually assaulted. She has a very dubious background.
1) Report: CBS Correspondent Lara Logan And Crew Detained In Cairo
2) CBS REPORTER LARA LOGAN COURTED TWO LOVERS IN IRAQ
The “60 Minutes” reporter and former swimsuit model apparently courted two beaus while she was in Baghdad, and has been labeled a homewrecker for allegedly destroying the marriage of a civilian contractor there, sources said.
3) CBS News Correspondent: “I’d blow my brains out”
Lara Logan: “Tell me the last time you saw the body of dead American soldier”
4) Some CBS executives have grown concerned for her safety, believing that she takes too many risks.
5) Lara Logan, CBS Reporter Admits Pregnancy
Lara Logan, the chief foreign affairs correspondent for CBS News, tells The Washington Post she is pregnant, and the father is a married federal contractor whom she met while stationed in Iraq.
[ ALL CULTURES ARE EQUAL! ALL CULTURES ARE EQUAL! ALL CULTURES ARE EQUAL! ]
Yeah, the libs are dumb for this lie, Cultures are different, if they were the same we would only have one culture.
I won’t begrudge anyone for the DNA they house or the colour of thier skin. I tend to judge someone on their character and their character is STRONGLY influenced by the culture they grew up in. So if you are only judging someone based off their character, you HAVE to take in account their CULTURE.
Libs are blind to this simple logic aren’t they.....
You know, I'll bet she was pulled away from themm, that they cut her off from them with that purpose in mind. I'd lay money on it that it was not an unintentional being separated from her crew.
Ummm, I think her story was corroborated by several others, and is probably on film.
Just because she has a “past” to you does not mean this is not true. She deserves sympathy here, not judgement.
You’re like me, then, a proud “culturist”.
Of course, leftists insists that culturism is racism in order to silence any criticism of non-Western cultures.
If this is the same Lara Logan stationed in Iraq who was involved with Joe Burkett, a U.S. State Dept. contractor back in 2008 then I'm calling this story complete BS.
Just google Lara Logan and see what a media whore she is ............
But back to the article, anyone viewing the coverage of the protests will see that there were very, very few women in attendance and those that were were sporadically scattered throughout the masses of men. There is now way in hell that "a group of women" would have been on site to save her from her alleged attack.........
This story is complete bullship and Lara Logan is looking for either a promotion or a pulitzer...........
Guess that’s what some Muzzie Extremists want to do to blond Christians. And not just women!
Well in the age of equality of the sexes you HAVE to send the women dont cha know. If CBS doesn’t send them they are considered sexist. Thank you, feminist movement!
Also I’d just like to add that based on what I’ve seen since 9/11, Islamists cannot live within a democracy but must be ruled with an iron fist because quite frankly, they are vile, sub-human creatures.
Her background is irrelevant and is no reason to imply that she is responsible for it or that it didn't happen..
We should be pissed off that any woman is treated this way!
What does the dummy in the White House have to say now?
Gotta love the new CBS headline:
CBS News’ Lara Logan Assaulted During Egypt Protests
Sexual assault is not even mentioned.....sounds like a general assault.
Several remarks on why the media is keeping it quiet. Perhaps she didn’t want the world to know. If it happened to me, I wouldn’t want everyone to know how badly I had been violated.
Prayers up for Ms. Logan.
American women are insane to thrust themselves in the midst of a male Muslim mob. She owes it to her child to keep herself alive. It doesn’t matter what SHOULD be true; a woman must accept reality! Bob
P.S. Nothing amusing about this horrific story.
