60 Minutes Reporter Raped

Being a war correspondent is fraught with danger as sadly 60 minutes reporter Lara Logan found out during the Egyptian celebrations in Tahrir Square last week. It is reported that at some stage the reporter and her team were surrounded by a frenzied mob of about 200 Egyptians. In the ensuing crush she was separated from her crew then assaulted  before  suffering a “brutal and sustained sexual assault” (in other words, gang raped). She was eventually rescued by a group of women and 20 Egyptian soldiers.Logan flew back to US the following day  where she is still currently recovering in hospital.

    It appears Lara Logan got what she wanted. She is not a victim. Some people might even call her a tramp.

    AND what would you call her?

  3. She is lucky to be alive, a Christian woman on the street daring a riot. What was she thinking? Or was she thinking.

    Awful.
    Sometimes I fear humanity is just doomed.

    I will fine out more on Lara Logan but I have these questions:
    1. Was she raped by the protestors or government bullies?
    2. Was being a Christian a cause for this?
    If this was caused by being a Christian, what is the meaing of Democracy?

    • The fact that she was separated and they had time to bash and rape her suggests it was pre-planned.
      Until women are treated as equal in Egypt there will never be democracy as we know it. I think the word is being used to appease the West.

    Lesson here is…don’t send a blond bimbo Yankee 60 minutes journo to a war zone in the Middle East…Stupid journos wanting the top price in journalism….However wrong it all is ….what did she realy expect? Law and order amongst several million lawless Egyptian men? Get real on this one…

    I don’t think it was the smartest thing for her being their. She is a journalist, and being a woman got raped. If there were hundreds of gay protesters, male reporters would be in the same position. I don’t think I would want to be a reporter in any war, or political violent situation. She did not deserve to be raped unless you conside the population who attacked her to be wild animals. .

      Sorry to say smiley..I don’t believe that hundreds of gay protesters would potentially rape a fellow male reporter….This is a straight thingy dude…She simply should not have been there…She has made a selfish stupid decission to go there. Bhoooo to her stupid bosses who should have known better also.

    its a shame but she was crazy to even be there.a job is not worth that bull shit thats for sure. should have worn a chasity bent with a master lock.

    I am a dark hair, dark eyed person, so i can say anything i want. This woman was blonde therefore desirable to these uncivilized people. Also these people of the middle east are more into man\boy relations than any where else in the world: is it any wonder that they result to mass rape also?
