The video below is a terrific illustration of the absolute silliness of the Obama administration's out-of-touch with reality approach to the Muslim world. In this clip, the top NASA administrator, Charles Bolden, says that Obama's top three priorities for NASA now include the charge to help the Muslim world "feel good" about its historic contributions to math and science.
You can catch the whole, crazy exchange in the full Al Jazeera interview. There are other alarming concepts suggested by Charles Bolden including massive praise for the multicultural aspects of the Space Station, a hostility to outsourcing to the commerical sector, and his fear of the idea that NASA is only looking out for NASA. I've felt, for a long time now, that NASA is a big, dangerous, technologically out-of-date, waste of money. Objectively, the last thing we need is Muslim terrorists in space.
It seems like we would be better off having Charles Bolden focusing on things that help America's space program and spending less time as a pretend diplomat seeking to raise Muslim self-esteem.
