The notion of ''success" is further complicated by the heterogeneous nature of American goals. Cancellation of Aswan aid may have saved the assistance program in Yugoslavia, and thus been successful in light of domestic and broader international aims, but it had a decidedly adverse effect on relations with the Nasser regime. No single aid policy can be assessed in isolation from its myriad side effects, both long-run and short-run. President Johnson's suspension of assistance to Nasser in 1965 may have staved off a Congressional revolt and contributed to a temporary modification of Egyptian policies, but in the long-run it probably reinforced Nasser's suspicions about the United States and deepened his hostility toward the Johnson Administration.
S. allies also had a voice in aid policy toward Egypt. Their complaints that Nasser was being rewarded for behavior that ran against the interests of loyal American allies were often a key factor in the calculations of American policymakers. One further distinction to be drawn when considering objectives is that between publicized and unpublicized goals. 7 At various times in the 1950s and 1960s, the American governmentwhether because of its own determination to clarify the issues for Nasser, domestic political concerns, perceived Cold War imperatives, or pressure from alliesmade the aims of its aid policy public.
