White House Denies NASA Administrator’s Claim

When NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said (possible) directive number one from the President was 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, math and engineering” he probably had little feel for the space-storm his comments would cause.

As Dan Rather observed, the camera, even if its al-Jazeera, never blinks.

Now the White House has, er, sought to clarify Bolden’s statement though a disavowal.

The disavowal/distancing still doesn’t explain the Bolden’s original comment.
