"It was mostly under the radar," Williams said. "We thought it would put (the president) in a precarious position. We didn't know how closely he wanted to appear to be working with the Muslim American community."
The move began with Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn, who took his oath of office with a hand on the Quran, to solicit the resume of what he considered to be the nation's most qualified adherents of Islam.
Yes, I suppose he would want the fact that he was trying to get more Muslims into the White House to be kept 'under the radar.' After all, an awful lot of people read that statement in his book, "Audacity of Hope."
“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
Perhaps, they will be wondering why he feels it is so important to get more Muslims into the White House.
Why not more adherents to Baptist, Methodist, Episcopalian, Pentecostal faiths? How about more Mormons? Sounds silly, I know...but I know you get the point.
