WH Keeps Lid on American Muslim Leaders' Talk With Obama

By    |   Thursday, 05 Feb 2015 09:31 AM

The White House is not revealing the names of the people who attended a meeting of American Muslim leaders with President Barack Obama, Breitbart reported.

The president's office said the Wednesday meeting covered "a range of domestic and foreign policy issues," including Obamacare, police fairness, anti-Muslim discrimination, and the upcoming Summit on Countering Violent Extremism.

"The President discussed the need to continue countering ISIL and other groups that commit horrific acts of violence, purportedly in the name of Islam," said a statement issued by the White House, according to Breitbart.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said there was nothing "unusual" about the meeting, and the president routinely meets with "a wide variety of communities from across the country."

"Sometimes that includes religious leaders; sometimes that includes leaders that are involved in academia or other specific issue areas," Earnest said, according to Breitbart.

But a request to the White House for a list of names of those who attended the meeting was not returned, Breitbart said.
