Letter to the editor,

Bill Rugh’s article, “The Egyptian NGO Case,” is very helpful in understanding the reasons behind Egypt’s treatment of the 17 Americans working for NGOs in Egypt.

However, it would be appropriate to ask how much experience the 17 Americans had in working in foreign countries, and especially in Middle East countries where history, culture, and attitudes toward the West, often play a determining role in the success or failure of US public diplomacy efforts.
