Lara Logan’s nightmare in Egypt resulted in an outpouring of sympathy from millions…except for Nir Rosen. Rosen resigned today over the backlash over his remarks about Logan.
Nir Rosen, a fellow at the NYU Center for Law and Security was not sympathetic and Rosen let everyone know that he “ran out of sympathy” for her and that everyone should “remember her role as a major war monger”.
Also stating, we have to “find the humor in small things”. Today, after the huge uproar of Rosen’s comments, he has resigned and NYU has accepted his resignation.
When he realized that what he said was outrageous he deleted his worst comments. But some of his comments were captured via screen grab, via Eyeblast, see below.
Lara Logan was sexually assaulted after returning to Egypt for an interview. CBS News disclosed that Logan was surrounded in Tahrir Square and “suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers.” She was hospitalized upon her return to the United States.
Roger Roeper of the Chicago Sun Times sums it up perfectly:
“Rosen has since resigned from his post at NYU and offered apologies to Logan and her family.Gee, I don’t know why Rosen quit. After all, he went on the record as not supporting a sickening mass attack on a woman. What a guy.”
