SEEMS SALAHIS WERE NOT UNKNOWN TO THE PRESIDENT. SEE PICTURE HERE.
POLITICO: A reader forwards on this photograph from the website PoloContacts.com, dated last November 26.
According to the caption, it pictures president-elect Obama, Randy Jackson of American Idol, members of the Black Eyed Peas ... and Tareq and Michaele Salahi.
Which, if the photo is authentic, might explain the vague look of recognition on Obama's face as he shook their hands.
The photographer, David Mortz, an aide to Salahi at America's Polo Cup, didn't immediately respond to a message seeking more details of the event at which the photo was taken. (SOURCE POLITICO)
