Foreign Service Journal;Nov2005, Vol. 82 Issue 11, p4
The article expresses the author's views on the rumors about United States Agency for International Development's (USAID) merger with State. He does not believe that it would be in the best interest of long-term U.S. foreign policy if USAID were merged with State. He states that Merger or no merger, USAID’s retreat behind the walls of fortress-like embassies is not the answer. He concludes that USAID needs desperately to find imaginative ways in which it can breach and eliminate the walls.
