Egypt's secret police, long accused of torturing suspects and intimidating political opponents of President Hosni Mubarak, received training at the FBI's facility in Quantico, Virginia, even as US diplomats compiled allegations of brutality against them, according to US State Department cables released by WikiLeaks.

Nice try though.

Training someone in the art of torture isn't meant to be used in too many ways, or am I missing something?
Do you mean to say that the intension of training them was in some way misinterpeted by the Egyptians?
Also, how many Guantanamo residents have made a stop-over in Egypt or Syria for a bit of light entertainment in those secret US operated prisons?
