A New York University fellow and journalist has resigned after making "cruel and insensitive" remarks about Lara Logan's sexual attack in Egypt.

Shortly after CBS announced Logan's attack Tuesday, Nir Rosen — who has written about foreign policy for The New Yorker and The New York Times, and filmed footage to the Oscar-nominated documentary No End In Sight — tweeted "Lara Logan had to outdo Anderson [Cooper] ... 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." 

He added that Logan, CBS News' chief foreign affairs correspondent, is a "major war monger" and that she was "probably groped like thousands of other women."
