A Quick Thought on the Lara Logan Assault: Feb 15, 2011

In case you have not yet heard it:

CBS reporter Lara Logan assaulted in Egypt

Feb 15 (Reuters) – CBS correspondent Lara Logan was beaten and sexually assaulted by a mob while covering the jubilation in Cairo’s Tahrir Square on the day Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down, the U.S. broadcasting network said on Tuesday. Logan, a 39-year-old South Africa native and longtime war correspondent, has since flown back to the United States and is recovering in hospital. She was one of dozens of journalists attacked during the three weeks of protests throughout Egypt.

Here is a picture of her from 2008.

So here is my tasteless question:

Did she seriously expect to be not manhandled in an environment with tens of thousands of young non-pussy whipped men and no law enforcement?

In Iraq, she was ’embedded’ with US soldiers and things were under control. Did she really think that being around whipped soldiers is the same as standing in a crowd of young aggressive men?


PS: Google about her “relationships” with Michael Ware and a few other people when covering the Middle-East. There is a bit more than the link suggests..


Update: FB has written an article on the same subject- Lara Logan is either an idiot or a liar
