WikiLeaks Report: Obama Admin Discriminated Against Arab Christians for Top Jobs
At PJMEDIA by Tyler O'Neil --
In a bombshell email from September 2008, advisers to Barack Obama's presidential campaign consciously decided to choose Arab Muslims over Arab Christians in suggesting top staff positions should Obama win the White House. The email was released by WikiLeaks in its latest series, "The Podesta Emails."
Former New York Solicitor General Preeta D. Bansal sent the email to Michael Froman, a classmate of Obama's at Harvard and a member of the 12-person advisory board for the Obama campaign's transition team. The email came with "the compiled lists of Asian American and Muslim American candidates for top Administration jobs, sub-cabinet jobs, and outside boards/agencies/policy committees."
