Lara Logan’s Gift

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - May• 02•11

News of Osama Bin Laden’s death obscured an extraordinary interview given by 60 Minutes’s Lara Logan last night.  Logan was brutally assaulted by a mob of men in Tahrir Square on February 11, the night Hosni Mubarek stepped down.  She only survived the ordeal because Egyptian women, in traditional head-to-toe-dress, stepped in to save her.

The South African war correspondent said she would give just one interview about the attack, and then get back to work, like the professional she is.  It is an extraordinarily brave interview that deserves more attention than it will receive today.
