Obama names envoy to Muslim communities By Silla Brush Posted: 06/27/09 01:18 PM [ET]
The Obama administration on Friday named America's first ever special representative to Muslim communities.
President Obama has made reaching out to the Muslim world a key part of his foreign policy and he traveled to Cairo earlier in June year to give a major speech in which he cited the Koran and emphasized commonalities between America and Islam.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday named Farah Pandith as the United States Special Representative to Muslim Communiites. Pandit is expected to engage with Muslims around the world on a grassroots and organizational level.
I am pleased to announce the appointment of Farah Pandith to serve as Special Representative to Muslim Communities," Clinton said. "Farah brings years of experience to the job, and she will play a leading role in our efforts to engage Muslims around the world."
Pandith, a State Department veteran and former official at the U.S. Agency for International Development, was an immigrant to the United States from India.

IMHO the job should be given to Jimmy Dean.
