Whenever I hear from American correspondents in the Middle East (and I frequently hear from them in response to my critiques), they invariable request that I don't mention on my blog that they have communicated with me.  I respect their wishes of course but makes me wonder as to why communication with the mildly-named, Angry Arab, may prove to be troublesome for their editors.  The only exception has been, ironically, Ethan Bronner.
