Obama quietly hands out names of Muslim leaders he met with privately

The White House has finally divulged the names of American Muslim leaders who met with President Obama this week, including Imam Mohamed Magid, who has advised the administration on formulating responses to incidents that Islamists consider offensive.

After stonewalling journalists for two days about the names of the participants at the meeting Wednesday, the White House quietly attached the list of attendees to the end of its daily press briefing transcript Thursday evening.

The guest list identified Imam Magid as a representative of the Adams Center, a large mosque in Sterling, Virginia. He has also served as president of the Islamic Society of North America, according to the group’s website.

Imam Magid, a native of Sudan, has served on the Department of Homeland Security’s Countering Violent Extremism Working Group and has worked as an adviser to the White House National Security Council to formulate U.S. responses to appeal to moderate Muslims in the battle against Islamist extremists.

It was Mr. Obama’s first meeting with American Muslim leaders at the White House, coming at a time of renewed discussion about the threat of radicalization of Muslims in the West. The hourlong talk focused on civil rights, anti-Muslim bias, and extremism, according to participants.

I can just imagine the Oval Office: Butts in the air pointed west, and noses on the carpet pointed east.

I wonder if the meeting was to plot the overthrow of the Egyptian president and the Jordan King. Did they make a conjunct declaration supporting King Abdullah strong response to the atrocious burning alive of the Jordan pilot by the Islamic extremists?

The Oval Office must have been very crowded. Consider all those Muslim Leaders from this country and the Muslim members of the administration in one room!

Interesting that a leftwing hate group such as the SPLC is now writing the rules.
