White House Ramadan Dinner

Reader comment on item: [The Need to Name and] Know Thy Terrorists

Dear Mr. Pipes,

Do you have a list of all that attended the Ramadan dinner at the White House? I'm curious which Islamic leaders attended and what their background is. I'm sickened that our tax dollars are spent serving our very enemies. Also, do you know what the menu was?

Our President goes out of his way to criticize Christian leaders, yet panders to the very people who are hell bent on destroying America and the world! What is going on? I'm really beginning to wonder who our President really is, or what he is.
