The Jamaican ambassador in Washington apparently believed that Jamaicans smuggled into the United States as children would benefit when President Obama proclaimed a targeted amnesty last year.
The Obama administration scrambled Sunday to clarify its stance on Egypt after a U.S. envoy appeared to suggest embattled Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak should remain in power.
"I think we should look at [Mr. Mubarak's release] as good news," Mr. Wisner told The Huffington Post. "I would like to think it would be the predecessor to a greater sense of reconciliation."
Mr. Wisner, ambassador to Egypt from 1986 to 1991, added that Egyptians must "come together."
