Lara Logan Sexually Assaulted - Heartless Morons Celebrate

I'm sure anyone reading this has already heard about CBS correspondent Lara Logan's sexual assault in Egypt, but if you haven't, here's the story. On Friday February 11, the day Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak stepped down, she was covering the story in Tahrir Square for a 60 MINUTES story when she, her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous mob of over 200 people within the celebration. In the crush of the frenzied mob, she was separated from her crew. According to numerous reports, she suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. Tragic, right?

Not so fast. Debbie Schlussel, a frequent Fox contributer seems ecstatic about the sexual assault on Lara Logan that occurred in Egypt. Think I'm kidding? Check this out:
As I’ve noted before, it bothers me not a lick when mainstream media reporters who keep telling us Muslims and Islam are peaceful get a taste of just how “peaceful” Muslims and Islam really are. In fact, it kinda warms my heart.
... How fitting that Lara Logan was “liberated” by Muslims in Liberation Square while she was gushing over the other part of the “liberation.”
Hope you’re enjoying the revolution, Lara! Alhamdilllullah [praise allah].
And to be fair, a left leaning journalist also decided to participate in heartless commentary via Twitter. NYU research fellow Nir Rosen tweeted “Lara Logan had to outdo Anderson. Where was her buddy McCrystal” referring to Logan’s defense of Gen. Stanley McCrystal in the wake of a Rolling Stone profile that cost the general his job and the beating that Anderson Cooper sustained in Egypt a couple weeks ago. He followed with: “Yes yes its wrong what happened to her. Of course. I don’t support that. But, it would have been funny if it happened to Anderson too.” Yeah, because he's allegedly gay. Just hilarious, Nir.

I know very little about Lara Logan, but know all I need to know about Schlussel and Rosen. To celebrate and joke about a life-altering, violent attack is the lowest of low. At least Nir Rosen has resigned his position at NYU. If there is a hell, there's a special place for monsters like Schlussel and Rosen.
