    You need to calm down. Other people are allowed opinions too. And much like you are posting what you see on the news, other people are posting that what they've seen on the news indicates that your report is incorrect. Threads are typically started and continued for discussion. In order for there to BE a discussion, you need more than just YOUR opinion.

    ETA... here you go. From the website you posted from (Wizbang Pop) and from Lara's own mouth apparently:
    Lara Logan said that “the attack was so sudden” and that she had “no way of escaping” the violence she faced last week. Lara Logan claims that she was separated from her crew by the rowdy crowd of about 200 following news that President Mubarak would step down, and she was kicked and punched and her clothes were ripped off. She also had some hair pulled out as well. She claims that a group of women saved her from actual rape by throwing themselves on top of her, protecting her. The nature of her sexual attack appears to be more that of groping or possible penetration by fingers, since the legal term “sexual assault” stands for some sort of sexual penetration under accepted U.S. law definitions, rather than the claims of a controversial YouTube video and other reports that have surfaced on the Internet in the last few days claiming actual violent rape or claimed details of that rape.
    Kill him.
    Kill her.
    Kill It.
    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    Wherever my kids are


    This just showed up on HuffingtonPost. It sounds really bad:

    CBS correspondent Lara Logan is speaking out for the first time since her brutal sexual assault in Egypt. Logan was attacked by a mob near Cairo's Tahrir Square on Feb. 11, the day that President Hosni Mubarak was finally driven from power. At the time, CBS News issued a statement saying that she "suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers." Her attack reverberated around the world and highlighted the dangers of sexual assault and harassment that women face while reporting.

    In interviews with "60 Minutes" and the New York Times which were released on Thursday, Logan described what happened when the mob surrounded her.

    "Our camera battery went down, and we had to stop for a moment, and suddenly, Bahar [the Egyptian cameraman] looks at me and says, 'we've got to get out of here,'" she told CBS' Scott Pelley. "I thought, not only am I going to die here, but it's going to be just a torturous death that's going to go on forever and ever and ever."
    Logan told the Times that the attack lasted for 40 minutes and involved 200 to 300 men.
    For an extended period of time, they raped me with their hands," she said. "My clothes were torn to pieces...what really struck me was how merciless they were. They really enjoyed my pain and suffering. It incited them to more violence."

    She said she wrote the statement disclosing what happened to her in Februrary because it “didn’t leave me to carry the burden alone, like my dirty little secret, something that I had to be ashamed of.”

    The full interview with Logan will air on Sunday. She told the Times she does not intend to give any more interviews about the attack.

    She must have been in so much pain. Those people are worse than animals. No wonder we were hardly seeing any women in news coverage from Egypt if those types were around.
