Skip to comments.Former NASA chief: Muslim outreach is ‘perversion’ of NASA’s mission

Michael Griffin, who headed NASA during the last four years of the Bush administration, says the space agencys new goal to improve relations with the Islamic world and boost Muslim self-esteem is a perversion of NASAs original mission to explore space. NASA was chartered by the 1958 Space Act to develop the arts and sciences of flight in the atmosphere and in space and to go where those technologies will allow us to go, Griffin says. Thats what NASA does for the country. It is a perversion of NASAs purpose to conduct activities in order to make the Muslim world feel good about its contributions to science and mathematics.
Griffin calls NASAs new mission, outlined by space agency administrator Charles Bolden in an interview with the al-Jazeera news agency, very bad policy for NASA. As for NASAs core mission of space exploration, Griffin points out that it has been reaffirmed many times over the years, most recently in 2005, when a Republican Congress passed authorizing legislation, and in 2008, when a Democratic Congress did the same thing.

The list, ping
sound of crickets listening to the comment from the San Fransisco Examiner readers
Lets break the toilet facilities and turn off the air filters on all future missions, then both Muslims and Illegals will feel right at home.
So said differently: Barry wants to share information between NASA and islamic countries to provide greater targeting and range of long range missles...
I thought it was our state department taking our money all over the globe that was suppose to spread happiness and good will and tidings.

I’ts working. They love us! </sarc>
That's kinda casual to the most obvious observer!!
Hopefully, we will get a conservative majority in both houses of Congress in November and can impeach Obama early enough next year (as well as the majority of his cabinet and his SCOTUS appointees) to correct a lot of this bull.
Muslims in space!!??? I think the Muppets will be there for generations before the 7th Century Muslims ever light off their first bottle rocket!
I want Obama impeached, tried for treason and sent to Gitmo to rot with his goat-humping muslim buddies. He’ll fit right in.
This President is very dangerous.
Like what? The science and mathematics that went into the planning and execution of the Sept 11th attacks on this country?
Touche’. Very good point.
Our government is now officially endorsing a religion?
