Well, now we know why NASA is not on the Obama Administration's budget cutting list. The reason: NASA isn't apparently about space exploration anymore, it's about dhimmitude. There is no way that I could have made this up - it's just not possible. Fox News: 
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.

The mind boggles.

I don't see this as a bad thing either. Strengthening ties, broadening education. This is a very good thing, in fact.
