WTF?

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.
"When I became the NASA administrator -- or before I became the NASA administrator -- he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering," Bolden said in the interview.

Are you fucking kidding me? Now we're going to share rocket science with our enemies? The first thought that entered my mind when I read this was "Death from above......."

I've been reading/hearing about this happy crappy since I got up this afternoon. I keep hoping that this is actually a trap - i.e. we lure in the terrorists with our offer of peace, understanding, tolerance, self esteem, blah, blah, bull crap...then drop the big one on 'em.

Hopefully somebody will record that for YouTube so that we can all watch.

"Are you fucking kidding me? Now we're going to share rocket science with our enemies?" Might as well...we've got one for a president.
