Question: Did the director of USAID leave his post in Egypt due to rising anti-American sentiment in the country?
Answer: Reports that Cairo USAID Director James Bever has departed Egypt due to anti-American sentiment are inaccurate. Mr. Bever is a widely respected senior development professional who will be preparing for other duties. His departure from Cairo was purely for internal reasons.
