Just a reliable Western ally

As I discuss in my book The Blogging Revolution, Egypt, one of the highest recipients of US aid annually, represses bloggers like few other nations on Earth. Now this:

Abdel Kareem Nabil Suleiman, an imprisoned blogger better known by the pen-name of Kareem Amer, is forbidden to leave his cell, his books have been confiscated and his health is deteriorating as a result of physical mistreatment, Reporters Without Borders said today, calling for his “immediate release.”

Suleiman has been held in a prison near Borg El Arab (40 km southwest of Alexandria) since 6 November 2006.
