Lara Logan spoke of risks four days before attack

Four days before she was brutally attacked, CBS chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan gave this interview to Charlie Rose in which she discussed how aware she was of the risks of reporting in Egypt but how compelled she was to return (link via L.A. Observed).

“It’s very hard for me to be away from this story,” she said at one point. “I feel in one sense like a failure, professionally. I feel like I failed, because I didn’t deliver, and I take that responsibility very seriously. And you know, we’re still working on the story, but fundamentally it’s in my blood to be there and to be on the street and be listening to people and to do the best reporting that I can. At the same time, I’m also aware of the fact I put my family through a very difficult situation.

“You know, one of the most dangerous accusations you can have leveled at you is that you’re a spy or an agent for a foreign government, and that’s the kind of accusation against which you have no defense and which can very easily get you killed, and you’d better take it seriously.”
