Well, he is a preacher (director of the New Century Evangelicals Project) who has had meetings "with the Obama administration’s liaison to Arab Americans, as well as with two of the president’s most trusted foreign policy advisers, according to White House visitor logs."
He also has ties to J-Street and talked to them last year about "the erroneous belief that the modern state of Israel and modern Israelis are the extension of the Children of Israel of the Old Testament.”
Yep, that's right. The Obama admin is getting advice from one of those types. Anybody shocked at this? Not me.
