White House Denies NASA Outreach to Muslims

The White House has gone into denial mode over NASA Administrator Charles Bolden's unequivocal statement to Al Jazeera that President Obama told him to use the space agency to make Muslims feel better about their culture and history.

Today, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said "That was not his task, and that's not the task of NASA."

Oh really? The White House backed up Bolden last week when his remarks first generated different levels of shocked disbelief.  And as I wrote, this does indeed sound like something President Obama would tell the head of NASA to do. And yes, Islam really has impoverished Arab culture and achievement.

# RE: White House Denies NASA Outreach to Muslims

From the “you can’t make this up” file, President Obama is turning NASA into his Muslim-outreach agency. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden says that NASA’s foremost mission in 2010 is to improve relations with the Muslim world. Pause. Re-read. Pause. Huh? Yes. Re-read again. So, at least Obama is keeping the dreams of our youth alive, you know? Instead of following the Kennedy mold of inspiring a nation by putting a man on the moon within a decade, perhaps President Obama can ask Americans to figure out how to avoid “slipping the surly bonds of earth” via the next suicide bomber? Many in Washington are asking: This mandate from Obama is so stunningly lacking in sensibility it borders on impeachability for being stupid? “Surely something must be terribly wrong with a man who seems to be far more concerned with Jews building houses in Israel than with Muslims building a nuclear bomb in Iran.”
No wonder everyone at work is walking around mumbling: Oh my God, He is a muslim!
