NASA Administrator Charles Bolden revealed his plans to improve relations between America's space exploration agency and the Muslim world to Al Jazeera before Congress, the Washington Examiner reported.
Bolden called a couple of lawmakers with the news on June 28, after his interview with the Middle East news organization but before it aired, the newspaper reported. "He ran down some of the things from the president's new space policy, and mentioned outreach to Muslims," Rep. Pete Olson, the top Republican on the House Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics recalled to the newspaper. "That stunned me. I didn't believe it."
Bolden's interview with Al Jazeera ignited a firestorm of controversy that has gone largely unreported by major news outlets. Michael Griffin, the NASA administrator during the latter half of the Bush administration told FoxNews.com that he believes the Muslim outreach plan is "deeply flawed."
"NASA ... represents the best of America. Its purpose is not to inspire Muslims or any other cultural entity," he said.

Bolden was quoted then saying Obama told him to "find ways to reach out to dominantly Muslim countries."
Reach out to Muslims, bring America down....so what else's new?
Meanwhile the dims in Congress just sit by and watch this commie-in-chief dismantle our country brick by brick. They don’t seem to care it’s their country too.
They should be starting articles of impeachment before it’s too late.
What does any of this have to do with NASA’s mission?
When we heard of Uncle Sam’s intent to sue Arizona, we learned that from a South American TV station.
Now we learn this other bit of US government biz from Al Jazaeera.
What in hell is going on here?
NASA's mission is now Obama's mission:
This country did not establish NASA to cater to any religion, let alone a cult. I would rather see NASA shut down but that would be too easy for the CIC. IMPEACHMENT
Yes, and WHY is it their (NASA's) responsibility????
“I would rather see NASA shut down but that would be too easy for the CIC.”
You mean like killing the shuttle program, reducing funding and buying space on other countries space vehicles to launch our satellites?
You think this whole thing is a charade so someone says, “shut down NASA?”
wiki: In 2009, President Barack Obama appointed Bolden to be administrator of NASA.
In a June 2010 interview with Arab news outlet Al Jazeera, Bolden said that his three major goals as Administrator was to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, to expand NASA's international relationships, and to reach out to and engage the Muslim world.
Liberal women think Islam isn’t really so bad for Muslim women because they get stoned and commit adultery (wait....or was that the other way around????)
It’s rock science. . .
What I was getting at was if we were given the choice of 1) Putting NASA on hold or 2) Using NASA to support muslims, I would pick number 1. The best thing to do is use NASA for its intended purpose, not support some cult in the world.
