Margaret Scobey, the new American Ambassador is playing it well , she made something no one expected especially that we thought that both governments closed that file from about 6 months ago. Scobey personally met the widow of Afifi and expressed her sorrow for what happened beside paying a compensation of L.E 750,000.
Yes Afifi’s family is suing the American administration for the murder of the poor man but let’s be frank this case will be adjourned till the grandchildren of the grandchildren of Afifi die !!!
It is a smart move of Scobey who is trying to come closer to the people with all that attack on her even before coming to Cairo , Scobey can’t go to the Sufi carnivals like the old Ambassador Done.
Smart move but with no actual result because people still look to the American administration with hate.
Of course it would have been smarter if the American Ambassador from 6 months ago had apologized and compensated the family !!
