After a woman was beheaded at an Oklahoma plant by a convert to Islam, the White House told the DC press corps they had “no comment” on the brutal murder.

As it turns out, the White House did comment. You might not know it though, because the statement from President Obama was targeted to a specific audience…

…and that statement was delivered by an administration official…

…to the congregation at a mosque attended by the man charged with the beheading:

KFOR 4:

Leaders of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City say it’s been a tough month for Muslims here in Oklahoma after being associated with the beheading at Vaughan foods in Moore.

Leaders of the faith here in the state say vicious messages are being left for Oklahoma Muslims, telling them to get out of Oklahoma and threatening to behead them all because the man behind the beheading claimed to be Muslim.
[…]
But the Muslim community received the highest form of praise from the White House for their hard work in helping rebuild the Moore community after a destructive tornado tore through the city in 2013.

Today, an official from Washington D.C. flew in to Oklahoma to present a special thank you to the Muslim congregation.

He read a message from President Barrack Obama, extending warm greetings from the American people during the Muslim holiday.

“Your service is a powerful example of the powerful roots of the Abrahamic faiths and how our communities can come together with shared peace with dignity and a sense of justice,” President Barack Obama said.

So yes, the White House has really sent a message following the beheading.
