Why did Jeremiah Wright visit the White House?

I was just perusing through the visitors to the White House, and am curious what business Reverend Wright  had on March 24, 2009 from 9:30 a.m. – 11:59 a.m. The description of his visit is indicated as a group tour. Kind of odd that President Obama’s formal spiritual leader could only visit the White House with a group.

Update: Apparently someone else, also named Jeremiah Wright, visited the White House. It was not the Chicago reverend. False alarm.

    He must have led the group!

    “A lot of people visit the White House, up to 100,000 each month, with many of those folks coming to tour the buildings. Given this large amount of data, the records we are publishing today include a few “false positives” – names that make you think of a well-known person, but are actually someone else. In September, requests were submitted for the names of some famous or controversial figures (for example Michael Jordan, William Ayers, Michael Moore, Jeremiah Wright, Robert Kelly (“R. Kelly”), and Malik Shabazz). The well-known individuals with those names never actually came to the White House. Nevertheless, we were asked for those names and so we have included records for those individuals who were here and share the same names.” — Norm Eisen, WH ethics counsel.

    I wonder who among our media also took the bait.
