Urging Americans to travel Egypt is just a general act of government towards the safety of their fellowmen. But if someone really needs to be there for a very reasonable purpose they have to make sure that they have necessary things needed our there. Also, for those who are really going to Egypt, give yourself a favor. Avail a travel protection.
