Six Americans working for publicly funded U.S. organizations promoting democracy in Egypt have been barred from leaving the country. The U.S. demands that that Cairo’s new military rulers stop “endangering American lives”.
Among those hit by travel bans – one of those targeted called it “de facto detention” – include a son of the U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. Other foreign staffers are also detained. How come he was detained?
Ah, springtime in Egypt — whether you like it or not!
