President Obama’s envoy to the Islamic bloc, Rashad Hussain, acknowledged Friday that he was accurately quoted in 2004 as calling the treatment of activist Sami al-Arian, then facing trial for supporting a Palestinian terrorist group. He had lied about the comment earlier in the week. The White House announced after the fact that they continue to have confidence in the Muslim radical.
FOX News reported on the controversial envoy.
Rashad Hussain admitted he made the controversial statements only after Politico posted the video.
