To the editor:

A recent editorial (Sept. 21) which said in part, andquot;U.S. Agency for International Development, for example, has trained more than 8,000 national, regional and local officials in concepts that were meaningless under Saddam Hussein: government transparency and accountability, fiscal responsibility, and human dignity.andquot;

My question is this: What country finds meaningful the concepts being taught to those officials?
