The worst part of this is that it surprises no one. And not just the secretiveness of it either.

“Obama quietly hands out names of Muslim leaders he met with privately,” by Dave Boyer, The Washington Times, February 6, 2015:
The White House has finally divulged the names of American Muslim leaders who met with President Obama this week, including Imam Mohamed Magid, who has advised the administration on formulating responses to incidents that Islamists consider offensive.
After stonewalling journalists for two days about the names of the participants at the meeting Wednesday, the White House quietly attached the list of attendees to the end of its daily press briefing transcript Thursday evening.
The guest list identified Imam Magid as a representative of the Adams Center, a large mosque in Sterling, Virginia. He has also served as president of the Islamic Society of North America, according to the group’s website.
Discover the Networks: “In response to pressure from Magid and his fellow lobbyists, DHS carefully erased from its ‘Countering Violent Extremism‘ curriculum any suggestion that Muslim terrorism drew its inspiration from the laws and doctrines of Islam. In 2012, the FBI purged some 700 documents and 300 presentations from its training materials and lesson plans.
Imam Magid, a native of Sudan, has served on the Department of Homeland Security’s Countering Violent Extremism Working Group and has worked as an adviser to the White House National Security Council to formulate U.S. responses to appeal to moderate Muslims in the battle against Islamist extremists.”
It was Mr. Obama’s first meeting with American Muslim leaders at the White House, coming at a time of renewed discussion about the threat of radicalization of Muslims in the West. The hourlong talk focused on civil rights, anti-Muslim bias, and extremism, according to participants.
The other attendees were Bilqis “Qisi” Abdul-Qaadir, director of women’s basketball operations at Indiana State University; Arshia Wajid, founder of American Muslim Health Professionals; comedian Dean Obeidallah;Islamic supremacist hate propagandist Dean Obeidallah champions the fiction of “islamophobia,” a word used to intimidate people into thinking there is something wrong with resisting jihad terror, and has appeared at events hosted by the Hamas-tied terror org CAIR.
Kameelah Rashad, founder of Muslim Wellness Foundation and Muslim chaplain at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia;
Kameelah Rashad has demonstrated against the entirely legal surveillance of Muslim groups in New York City.
Diego Arancibia, board member and associate director of the Ta’leef Collective; Farhan Latif, chief operating officer and director of policy impact at the Institute of Policy and Understanding; Sherman Jackson, professor of religion and American Studies and Ethnicity at the University of Southern California; Azhar Azeez, president of the Islamic Society of North America;
The Islamic Society of North America was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Hamas terror funding case.
