On June 26, 2004 Muslim Wake Up Inc. reported, "AMT [American Muslim Taskforce] has been set up to guide Muslim voters about the 2004 elections. It is the new incarnation of the notorious American Muslim Political Coordination Council (AMPCC) that was set up in 2000 to rally the Muslim vote behind Bush-Cheney. But as we reported in February, the 2000 Bush endorsement debacle was apparently enough of a liability to make AMPCC defunct and require a new name. However, new name or not, traditional US Muslim leaders still seem to be asleep at the wheel, denying any change in direction and ignoring trends among their rank and file."
