CWN Editor's Note: Hussain, a former US Special Envoy for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications, “has enormous credibility across a broad range of faith groups, built on years of leadership in efforts for religious freedom,” Robert George (a Catholic professor at Princeton University) and Rabbi David Saperstein wrote recently.

“His nomination has brought enthusiastic praise from groups ranging from the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission and the Baptist World Alliance to the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League and the Union for Reform Judaism, as well as widespread commendations from the Muslim community,” they added.
