"If those American 'workers' were over there committing crimes; if they are truly criminals, why won’t our government allow them to go to trial and take their punishment? If you or I, or the average Joe Six-pack American slob committed crimes in Egypt, do you think the U.S. would fork over $300,000 of your taxpayer dollars to take care of it? Again -- not a chance. But if the son of a cabinet level secretary is involved, the sky is apparently the limit, and no questions are asked. If they were not committing crimes, then this was nothing more than a deplorable Third World style shakedown and the corrupt Egyptian officials perpetrating it should not escape the diplomatic consequences."
