Where No Muslim Has Gone Before
President Obama killed the Space Shuttle program. I thought the Prez might be looking to make some actual spending cuts. But no, he’s putting all those space industry employees out of a job for an even better reason — to fix our relationships with Muslims.
Don’t take my word for it. Fox News reports that NASA Administrator Charles Bolden told al Jazeera Television — yes, you read that correctly — that one of his three primary missions at NASA is:
…he (Obama) 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.
You aren’t alone. I don’t get the connection either. Perhaps, if they are busy studying math and engineering to get jobs at NASA they won’t have time to build IEDs. Of course, if we teach them about rocketry, couldn’t they use them against us?
Isn’t it strange that in all those video rants Osama bin Laden never once mentioned that he wanted to be an astronaut. Then again, what American wouldn’t love sending OBL to the Moon… or maybe even Pluto.
No doubt al Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah will soon issue press releases announcing they have given up targeting Americans. Aw c’mon, all that “Great Satan” stuff was just a silly misunderstanding. They just wanted a redistribution of space technology.
