This comment was taken from another blog by one "itayemi4ever". I have to agree, there's more to this assault then what we are told to believe. On the surface it may seem that this was nothing more than a terrible assault, but with the amount of media censorship that should be obvious by now, it would appear that CBS and even our own gov. has more to loose than Ms. Logan if any images of the attack are seen. I will be commenting more on this in the days ahead, but for now please read on:
"Its very sad what happened to miss logan. but i must agree the whole truth is not being revealed. i do not blame her for not trying to reveal all that happened to her that night, it was a very horrif assault that she surely wishes to forget.
but heres some hints for those of you that a curious. the vidoes of her assault that was taken with cellphones are said to be circulating on arab websites. heres my question if the video is fake, how come so many accounts in youtube and other video viewing sites are being blocked and deleted because of it. i have been searching for it for the past week. but the rate at which the sites hosting them are being taking down in america is amazing. i never would have thought it possible but your internet censor system successfully supressed the video from being released. even the torrent version was succesfully stopped!
unless you have access to some arab sites we won't be seeing it anytime soon. but those who have seen it said it was a real brutal rape scene and not just "hand attack" like she said in the interview. like i said i understand if she doesn't want to discuss the true events of that night, shes suffered enough as it is. thank God she's recovering.
Now doesnít that surprise you? With the crowd and the length of time she claimed she was held hostage, with length and amount of photos and video that would have been taken. Donít you find it very odd, That none of it has surfaced? Knowing the propensity of her assailants to gloat over their victims, donít you find it strange, that ďnobodyĒ here seems to have any detail on what happened?(and iím sure lots of people have been to your page but canít post because of the rules!!) If she was only hand assaulted as she claimed, how come the blanket of secrecy over this one is so high?
I tell you, Iíve never seen so many youtube accounts blocked on account of a single video in my life as much as this one! The video must have been truly horrific!! Nobody practically knows anything in Europe and america (the word going round in arab websites seem to paint a different picture) the assault on this poor woman was so brutal even the president of the united states had to personally call!
Secondly how many people here truly believe that a gang of criminal men, kidnapped a very beautiful woman, into an alley and held here for 40minutes (some claim its much longer), tied her spread eagle on the ground naked, and only ďtouched her privatesĒ. Keep in mind that the criminals who abducted her were different from the people busy celebrating their victory in the square, most were immigrants/touts that purposely targeted her.
I live in Nigeria and have seen what men from specific areas who are not used to seeing a womans face(because women in such areas are covered in full hijab) can become when confronted with a normally dressed woman, Let alone a white naked woman tied spread eagle on the floor in a dark alley controlled by gangs at night!!! Unless there was a armed commander in charge of the crowd giving orders on exactly what they should do, they could not have used their hands alone.
i have a little background in psychology and psychiatry. The sequence of events that has played out around the case when psychoanalysed, shows that the events that occurred that night is obviously worse than the general public is led to know. I believe that is why people have been unable to answer your seemingly simple questions.
Based on accounts from those who have seen the assault video, its so barbaric it believed it will give rise to unrivalled anti-islamic and anti-Arab drives that the American government is actively destroying the videos as they emerge. even the arabs themselves seem to find it so appalling most are embarrassingly silent about it (notice aljazeera )
An equally powerful pointer is aljazeeras conspicuous silence on the matter. Strange? With their purported track record of claiming to always telling the truth they obviously decided to keep deathly silent on the matter rather than lie by playing down the event. Because when the video finally emerges it will tarnish their reputation if they lied about it! Seriously, they havenít uttered a word! How odd is that!!

If video of the attack exists, there is nothing in the rules of YouTube, LiveLeak or any major file sharing forum against someone posting censored still-shots from the video. If it exists, why are there no screen-captures with blurred our genitals? Maybe I'm wrong. All I know is, if these videos do exist, nobody on any of the forums I've checked out (and I've checked out a dozen or more) has seen them.

Do you seriously think the government has full-time employees monitoring the Internet for the "rape tape" or that the government is "shutting down all these YouTube videos" or whatever else? Man, that isn't even slightly true. Instead, YouTube videos are getting shut down because they are either spam or porn, same as always, and the torrents aren't being seeded because they're either fakes or viruses, and the government is too busy trying to kill the next Osama to give a shit about any sort of "rape tape" coming out of Egypt. No footage has surfaced at all in any way and the reason we haven't seen any pictures or video is because nobody who was there wants to get identified and arrested and executed or get others identified and arrested and executed and face retribution. It's that simple.

A solid point noted by the previous poster. Certain websites want to avoid any appearance of a cover up but are trying to minimize any liability to Ms. Logan or CBS. Such is the case for Michael:
My YouTube account is no longer disabled and Google/YouTube even apologized to me. The Title, "Lara Logan - The Full Report - Fact, Fiction, or Sexual Fantasy" says it all about the incident, if it is True, Fiction, or someones Sexual Fantasy.
I believe what she said. If she left out things, she may be in denial or doesn't remember them due to their horrific nature. I believe CBS is leaving things out to cover their butts because they let her get into this situation.
I am sorry for her.
One thing I have learned is how frequent and open sexual harassment is in Egypt against their woman. I never new that before. If anything good can come of Lara Logan's rape, it is the exposure of this Egyptian problem to the world.
Maybe this will help the Egyptian people correct it.

When people use such broken English to try t sound "foreign" (like a taxi driver from an Adam Sandler film) it's always fake. Any Egyptian who understands English well enough to read the original post would also understand it well enough to write back in clear English. This dude is full on fake-zilla. His claims are pure fantasy and he's not Egyptian. Tell me you figured that out already.
