White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest announced in a written statement today that President Obama will host a “Summit on Countering Violent Extremism”–not radical Muslim terrorrism–on Feb. 18 and that the event will be held “in light of recent, tragic attacks in Ottawa, Sydney and Paris.”
The statement said one “theme” of the summit would be “religious leader engagement,” but made no mention of radical Islamic terrorism. It also made reference to “foreign terrorist fighter recruitment” generically, but made no specific mention of radical Islamic terrorist groups recruting fighters in Western nations.
