    Shocking Details About The Lara Logan Attack

    Simply saying it was a “prolonged sexual assault” hides the depravity of this heinous and barbaric attack./ Ted Belman

    CBS international reporter Lara Logan is a well known public figure. And CBS and other media have accepted that she was brutally assaulted. However, Youtube and some Arab Websites are offering some further claimed shocking details not reported by the U.S. media and even some video about the extreme brutality of the attack on CBS reporter Lara Logan . Reportedly, some videos did show a crowd of about 200 or more men surround and separate Lara Logan from her security, and the crowd shouted “Jew, Jew!”, and “American bitch!”. Lara Logan is not Jewish or American, she’s a South African native.


    Reportedly some of physical and sexual assault activity was caught on camera phones as well. One video purportedly involved some boy fondling the breasts of the reporter. However, another purported video that was described by a controversial YouTube video claims that a bearded man ripped the top off the reporter and began slapping her face and breasts. He then pinned her to the ground, and by this time she stopped resisting, apparently accepting the fact that she was overpowered. The bearded man then removed her pants and masturbated in front of her before raping her. He also reportedly clawed at her breasts with his hands. The YouTube video claims that at least six men raped her vaginally, and a number of men also raped her anally as well. She was reportedly masturbated on and urinated on by some men as well according to the YouTube video claims which was supposed to be pieced together from information and videos posted on Arab Websites and other sources.

    It was claimed by various reports that the sexual assault and beatings might have lasted anywhere from 20-30 minutes on the short side, and as long as about 3 hours on the other hand. It was also claimed that her left breast might have been bitten or might even had the left nipple bitten off as well. One report claims that somewhere from 6 to about 50 men might have sexually assaulted or beat the attractive reporter.

    One one hand, Lara Logan deserves her privacy. On the other hand being a major public figure, this international crime story is a very important one. It is also important to understand how anti-Americanism seemed to play a major role in the extreme level of brutality here. Reportedly, the reporter was left bloody, with semen and urine on her as the crowd shouted anti-American slogans. This reporter deserves far better respect than these claims of the brutality suggest. This mob violence against an attractive reporter who risks her life by reporting from the world’s hot spots only illustrates the type of danger that reporters potentially face when they report the news.

    The assault on Lara Logan illustrates just how much order has recently broken down in the MidEast region which is now far more dangerous for Westerners. Further, some dangerous heads of Al Qaeda have been released from prison in places like Libya as rioting crowds demanded that political prisoners are released. When reporter Lara Logan heals from her injuries, she will no doubt bravely go right back to reporting on all the perils of this region.

    Update: Some of the videos such as a controversial YouTube video have been recently pulled down by YouTube about this brutal attack. And reportedly, a number of camera phone videos of the attack may exist as well. But, what is known is that a crowd of perhaps 200 men were witnesses, while some participated in this crime in addition to the Egyptian women and police that were witnesses to this crime. Yet, CBS has had a peculiar double standard as to openly reporting this news story. At first CBS ignored this major news story, first allowing other news sources to report the story before finally admitting that international reporter Lara Logan “suffered a brutal and prolonged sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers”. This has only led to a series of stories such as the YouTube video and postings on foreign Websites that claim to have viewed camera phone videos, photos or witness accounts of this story.

    Only weeks ago when Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was seriously wounded by a gunman at a constituent meeting at an Arizona Safeway store, CBS had no problem reporting in detail the injuries to the congresswoman and other victims of the attack. However, in the case of this attack and violence against one of their own reporters, CBS has been unusually silent, only allowing other accounts, or even possible speculation to fill the void. Further, CBS hasn’t been helpful in answering the question about whether rape was involved. However, legally the term “sexual assault” under U.S. law does usually stand for some form of sexual penetration.

    We feel very sorry for reporter Lara Logan here. She’s an extraordinary journalist. However, CBS should be as open and honest about this story as Logan has been about her honest reports at hotspots around the globe. CBS could also be as honest and open about her injuries as they were in reporting the injuries to Rep. Giffords recently. The public wants to know how badly injured Lara Logan was. They identify with her because she’s such a popular public figure, seen in their living rooms several times a week on the CBS news.

    CBS has a real opportunity to clear the air here, and honestly report the facts of this story, and not to whitewash the facts here. It appears that even the Obama Administration has pushed officials in Egypt to bring those that attacked Lara Logan to justice, strongly suggesting that real documentation of the crime, such as cell phone videos do exist which could identify those who beat or sexually assaulted the popular reporter. Meanwhile, Lara Logan continues to have our best wishes and prayers for her full and complete recovery.

    16 Comments to Shocking Details About The Lara Logan Attack

    1. BlandOatmeal says:

      The mainstream media (Google News) isn’t covering this. Apparently it’s old news, or perhaps politically incorrect: white woman raped by Moslem “pro-democracy” mob. Where are all those liberated lesbian ______ women of NOW? Why aren’t they sounding off? Away, frying bigger fish, I suppose… How about the media reporters? Don’t they care for their own? Aren’t they afraid for their own lives? Lemmings.

    2. Honestly,
      There is a big difference between Giffords and Logan. While both women were victims of violent crime, it is known that people react very differently to crimes of a sexual nature. I have never heard of an innocent shooting victim being embarrassed to testify about her attacker – scared, in some instances, but not embarrassed. On the other hand there is a psychological aspect involved with rape that women often have trouble reporting rape.

    3. Shy Guy says:

      Not everything has to be reported. Not everything has to be published. Enough.

    4. Rich says:

      This makes me want to cry and every other emotion I can imagine. Everything must be known. There are those in this sick world who would defend the rapists as the real victims.

    5. Reportedly, some videos did show a crowd of about 200 or more men surround and separate Lara Logan from her security, and the crowd shouted “Jew, Jew!”, and “American bitch!”. Lara Logan is not Jewish or American, she’s a South African native.

      “When Obadiah’s up, he’s up like an animal.” The jihad ape will use any excuse to rape an attractive woman, just like Obadiah Hakeswill in the Sharpe series.

      One one hand, Lara Logan deserves her privacy. On the other hand being a major public figure, this international crime story is a very important one.

      Lara Logan is not the one who should be ashamed of what happened to her. The details should be reported as frequently as possible to reinforce the image of militant “Muslims” as primitive savages that cannot control their bestial sexual urges and are probably worthy of extermination like cockroaches. YOU CAN TAKE THE APE OUT OF THE JUNGLE BUT YOU CAN’T TAKE THE JUNGLE OUT OF THE APE.

      “Reportedly, some videos did show a crowd of about 200 or more men surround and separate Lara Logan from her security, and the crowd shouted “Jew, Jew!”, and “American bitch!”. Lara Logan is not Jewish or American, she’s a South African native.”

      What a depraved demonstration of hatred, violence and ignorance!! OOOPS> Not a Jew and Not an American, simply a women doing her job. Any thoughts of sympathy of an oppresed people become tainted with suspisions of alterior motives when such actions occur. Instead of utilizing the presence of the Press to advance their cause, they simply hurt any sympathy that may be created and showed that in this case at least the oppression of certain types of people may actually be a good thing! These types of people who behave with such disdain for women deserve no place at the table of reasonable thinkers. To think that there are people that think what is going on here might be a good thing amazes me.

      Sadly I do not see how this woman will ever receive justice for this crime. May God bless her and give her peace and the inner strenth to overcome this hatefilled act.

      How are you going to do that without pandering to the salacious appetites of the American public?

      I agree with ShtGuy #3

      “All that is thought should not be said, all that is said should not be written, all that is written should not be published, all that is published should not be read.”

      “All that is thought should not be said, all that is said should not be written, all that is written should not be published, all that is published should not be read.”

      Whatever happened was traumatic enough for Lara Logan to be airlifted out of Egypt to a hospital. I sincerely hope her privacy is respected, that she was not subjected to the account above, and will be able to return to her work and her life.

      That said, I do wonder whether being called “Jew, Jew” (widely reported) will change how she reports and analyzes since I had to turn off the tv rather than listen to her biassed chat with Charlie Rose maybe two weeks ago. (If I pause for a minute of Charlie Rose, it means NOTHING else is available)

    9. Teshuvah says:

      I wonder if this attack will cause Lara Logan to switch sides and become a conservative. I posted on another board supporting Israel, the perennial canary in the mines, and countering the liberal pro-Arab supporters, many of whom were women. When I put up links showing the nature of the Muslims, historically and in the present, they attacked me calling me hateful, racist and unloving and one of their male members called me the four-letter C word. I posted to one woman they would cut off her female genitalia and gang rape her to death. I even posted a dream showing such things happening in the U.S. See, The Capturing of Many Women. Then she complained she had couldn’t sleep and had bad dreams and it was my fault. For what? Telling her the truth! What happened to Lara Logan is close to what I said would happen. I’ve left that forum for good. None of the wicked shall understand especially Jew Haters who runs to welcome the Trojan Horse of Islam.

      Dan 12:10 10 Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but they that are wise shall understand.

    10. Teshuvah says:

      This link and others says she said she was not raped. What do you suppose the truth is?

      “… In the crush, she was separated from her crew. During the attack that followed, her clothes were ripped off, she was kicked and punched, her hair pulled out and she was sexually attacked.
      She said she had escaped being raped because of the intervention of a group of women who threw themselves on top of her, protecting her from further harm.
      Egyptian soldiers, she said, also came to her aid and escorted her back to her hotel. …” Logan tells of Tahrir Square assault – South Africa News | IOL.co.za

      Google “Lara Logan was not raped” for more.

    11. Peter Waldo says:

      Obama and Hillary encouraged the mob in Egypt through their statements. Members of the Obama campaign trained many leaders of the mob in personal media “community organizing”. Thanks for voting demoncrat (you know who you are).

    12. ellen goldin says:

      Allthis is on Obama’s hands. He is responsible, he started this. Who asked him to bring democracy to savages?
      This what he does. See Kenya revolution with Odinga. Obama was involved. Enough is more than enough

      The next one to be pushed out should obama. He is not legitimate president. Everyone knows that. Throw him out together with Soros

    13. Allessio says:

      These scum thugs better run. The special forces of the USA are looking for you now.

    14. John M says:

      Obama did not create this …..A Mob Mentality Did

      I remember scenes from LA after the Rodney King verdict….one scene in particular shows a white truck driver dragged from his truck and severly beaten….his head is then crushed with a concrete clock and his attacker dances around the truck driver in glee

      Man’s ability to be cruel to his fellow man has always existed and it sure does not take much for it to bre revealed

    15. Teshuvah says:

      The globalists and the Muslims, this case, the Muslim Brotherhood, stay in the background and send in their agents to stir up a mob. The intention is totalitarianism.

      BTW, check out this: FBI: Muslim Brotherhood deeply rooted inside U.S.

    16. John M says:

      Just like Bloggers like Jim Holt and such hire Agents / Trolls to stir up “The Mob” on their websites or Blogsite or whatever they are called

      It’s a “Sad and Beautiful World”….sure is….thanks Charlie!!!
