Here's When The Clinton White House Wanted To 'Send A Muslim!'
A handwritten note from the Clinton White House suggested the State Department "find a prominent Muslim associate" to help the U.S. government with a classified terrorism "effort."
"Send a Muslim!" the note declared.The note was included in the latest document dump from the Clinton White House. A second batch of newly declassified documents was released by the William J. Clinton Presidential Library Friday.

"Recommend - tasking State to find a prominent Muslim associate directly or indirectly with the U.S. Gov."The note was included in a larger group of files labeled "terrorism." It's not clear if the note is in response to a memorandum included in the same group of documents that was sent by former Transportation Secretary Federico Peña on Aug. 8, 1995. In the memorandum Peña advised the White House to hold a press conference the next day to advise the public of increased security at U.S. airports.
