WASHINGTON – The White House on Thursday condemned "spurious accusations" after recent media publications implictly accused Palestinian-American and Jewish-American staffers of racism and dual loyalty.

"We are appalled by recent spurious accusations against our staff," Emily Horne, a spokesperson for the National Security Council, said. "We welcome oversight and scrutiny, but there is no justification for false and ad hominem attacks based on ethnic, racial, or religious identity," Horne added, emphasizing that "women and men of the NSC are patriotic, dedicated, and serve their country with distinction. Being forced to endure public smear campaigns should not be part of working on behalf of the American people."
