NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in a recent interview that his "foremost" mission as the head of America's space exploration agency is to improve relations with the Muslim world.

Though international diplomacy would seem well outside NASA's orbit, Bolden said in an interview with Al Jazeera that strengthening those ties was among the top tasks President Obama assigned him. He said better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel.

This, if nothing else, should show you all how incompetent, immature, out of touch with reality President Obama is. It's time to put aside the Partisan, seriously, and consider this mans sanity.

Conservatives literally hate diplomacy.

I mean, what would NASA know about contributions to science and engineering? :roll:

Well, the Messiah just destroyed NASA's reason for existence. The Messiah destoryed the US Manned Space Program, so there's no real reason for NASA to exist. That means the cronies the Messiah appointed to head NASA has to roam the world searching for something else to do, and what better thing could a good crony do but kiss up to the man who was educated in a Madrassa before moving to the White House and bowing to terrorist... er muslim leaders everywhere?


How's that Dope and Change working out for the Democrat's anyway?

Edit
====

Or, look at it another way.

Iran is developing new ICBM technology, the Messiah killed the Ares Program. Clearly NASA is trying to suck up to more forward looking nations like Iran.

Seeing as how he was being interviewed by Al-Jazeera, what's the big deal?

Or are you against improving relations with the 'Muslim world'?

You should take up a career in satire. You are excellent at it.

I'm not against improving relations, I am against making "Muslim Outreach" a priority for NASA.

It's one of those things that costs next to no effort and can have positive results.

It probably isn't a priority for NASA. He just said that because he was talking to Al Jazeera.

Yes I am adamantly opposed to anything but confrontation with the Muslim world, just as the U.S. confronted or contained Communism wherever it broke out the same thing should apply to the Islam which is a far more insidious ideology than Communism. Islam is incompatible with human liberty and should be treated as such.

Oh and for those that say we need better relations with the Muslim world because it is the fastest growing religion, well that may be technically true, in actuality atheism is growing faster, we should not be appeasing, offering a helping hand, or in any way encouraging an inherently oppressive ideology we should be encouraging secularism.

It depends entirely on what, precisely, that "improving" means.

And this.

I mean.

I am entirely supportive of improving relations with the world.

But not at the expense of that which defines us.

And a change of that fundamental sort would be required to improve relations with some parts of the "Muslim world"

Oh my what an ignoramus.
Without Arabic Mathematics we would still likely be at the bronze age.
Why not look up the History of mathematics, might give you a better respect for Arabs and Muslims.

The pre-Islam Arab world made some leaps and bounds in both arenas, but ever since, the goat-****ers put the desert on full fail retard, they haven't done squat

Then why don't we add Russian outreach, North Korea outreach and China outreach to NASA's repertoire?

I also submit the EPA should reach out more to Elbonia and the ATF should try improving relations with the Wicker people of Seti Alpha 6.

Hell it's one of those things that costs next to no effort and can have positive results.

NASA already works with Russia and China. North Korea doesn't work with anybody, but that's hardly NASA's fault.
EPA already works with international organizations also.
Do you not understand how a space agency might want to work on an international level?

So what point were you trying to make again?

Outreach is probably part of the job for NASA and other government agencies across the board. Ask yourself who he was tailoring his message for...

If you had actually read the exchange you would have known this wasn't about working with other countries.

Do you understand what NASA does?

Hint: Its not religious global outreach.

I give up. Who? Iran? Because of all the amazing success he's had with his new approach since he took office?

Are people actually capable of holding meaningful conversation with you on this forum? Do you know what you say? (edit:I dont mean to qualify this as a personal attack)

Yes I do know what I say and what I am saying is that the U.S. should not condone or extend a hand of outreach to an ideology in which the mainstream views held by all major sects of the ideology is that homosexuality and apostasy are crimes to be punished by death. If the mainstream Christian view held by all major christian sects still maintained that homosexuality and apostasy are not only sins but crimes and more than crimes but capital offenses I would have that same view towards Christianity.

Any other ideology on the planet which has those as mainstream policies is ostracized, labeled as a hate group, and you sure as hell would not have the POTUS on national t.v. extending a hand of friendship to its adherents, but for some reason Islam gets a free pass. I mean you have Obama's Supreme Court nominee banning the military from the Harvard Campus for its don't ask don't tell policy, but then you have Obama going to Cairo reciting a love letter to an ideology in which the view held by all 5 major sects is that gays should be put to death. The hypocrisy is staggering.
