Clinton to Host (Another) Dinner for Muslims, in the Ben Franklin Room

How can 1% of the population constitute the largest percentage of special interest pandering by the United States government? A two-word hint that is also the name of this blog.


Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to Host Iftar Dinner

Washington, DC

September 14, 2009

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will host an Iftar dinner to celebrate the Holy Month of Ramadan on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, at 7:15p.m., in the Benjamin Franklin Room at the U.S. Department of State, Washington, D.C.

The Holy Month of Ramadan is a time devoted to worship, contemplation, charity, and fellowship, observed with a daily fast from sun up to sun down. At the end of each day, Muslims traditionally break the fast with a meal known as “Iftar.” Ramadan is the month Muslims believe the Qu’ran was revealed to the Prophet Mohamed; it is a month of reflection, generosity, and compassion for more than a billion Muslims worldwide.

Secretary Clinton will make remarks at approximately 7:45p.m.

The remarks are pool-press-coverage for cameras and stills and open-press for writers.

Pre Set time for Pool Cameras is 6:15 p.m. from the C Street entrance
