CHICAGO â€” In a bid to get more Muslim Americans working in the Obama administration, a book with resumes of 45 of the nation’s most qualified â€” Ivy League grads, Fortune 500 executives and public servants, all carefully vetted â€” has been submitted to the White House.
The effort, driven by community leaders and others, including U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., was bumped up two weeks because White House officials heard about the venture, said J. Saleh Williams, program coordinator for the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association, who sifted through more than 300 names.
“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.”
* KeithÂ Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress: Â Â “He’s done a lot, and I believe he will do more,” Ellison said, adding that “I identify with the impatience. I want to see things happen faster.”
Hmm, what kind of thing is he talking about? The Islamization of America?
Why not chose from among the Gitmo apes?
