Bush’s ‘Muslim outreach’ fails to reach Egyptian students

US Under Secretary of State Karen P. Hughes, tasked with improving a badly bruised US image abroad, was faced with a flurry of angry reasons why Washington was disliked in the Arab and Muslim worlds during her meeting with Egyptian students.

The meeting took place Sunday, September 25, at the American University in Cairo (AUC), where Hughes got a taste of the difficult job ahead when she found herself faced with angry queries over the US war on terror, Iraq, aggressive stance on Syria and Iran, in addition to meddling in the affairs of developing countries.
