Question of the Day
Daley tweaks Republican envoy
Not much news there.
Except the diplomat - former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. - is a potential GOP opponent for Mr. Obama in 2012. And his ties to a Democratic president might not go over too well with Republican activists who play a large role in selecting the party’s nominee.
Mr. Huntsman is set to resign as ambassador to China in April.
Mr. Obama’s chief of staff, William Daley, tells NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Mr. Huntsman has done an excellent job as ambassador. Mr. Daley says Mr. Huntsman’s closeness in working with Mr. Obama is appreciated.
Mr. Daley got in a little jab by adding, in his words, “I’m sure he’ll talk about that in the primaries.”
Hearings planned on Muslim threat
The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee says affiliates of al Qaeda are radicalizing some American Muslims and that he plans to hold hearings on the threat they pose to the U.S.
Rep. Peter T. King, New York Republican, tells CNN’s “State of the Union” that he sees an international movement with elements in the United States of Muslims becoming more radical and identifying with terrorists.
A Minnesota Democrat, Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to the House, says that while it’s proper to investigate radicalization, he thinks it is wrong to single out a religious minority.
On Sunday, groups opposed to Mr. King’s hearings plan to rally in New York. President Obama’s deputy national security adviser will speak on the administration’s approach to countering domestic radicalization.
