Question: What is the U.S. policy on contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria?
Answer: We strongly advocate, in all countries, the right of all citizens to participate fully in political life and choose their leaders. We have met with several Syrian civil society organizations and representatives that promote much-needed peaceful democratic reform in their country. We have not met with members of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Comment: The meeting between White House staff and Memebrs of the National Salvation Front did not include members of the Muslim Brotherhood and only followers of Khaddam's wing, one must presume.
