US delivers first four gifts to Egypt

The United States has delivered the first four of 20 F-16 fighter planes it is giving as a gift to Egypt. This is from the first link.
The United States has delivered four F-16 fighter jets to Egypt, Egypt's military and a US military delegation said on Sunday, highlighting military links between the two countries despite Egypt's political upheaval.

A statement from the American embassy in Cairo said a US delegation and Egypt held a joint ceremony on Sunday to mark the arrival of the jets, the latest of 224 F-16s delivered to Egypt.

US aid, which has brought criticism in the US Congress, has given the United States leverage over Egypt for decades and given its warships preferential access to the Suez Canal.
What could go wrong?
