Who do you believe, NASA administrator Charles Bolden or Robert Gibbs/Obama? Fox News:
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Monday that NASA Administrator Charles Bolden must have misspoken when he told Al Jazeera last month that one of his top priorities is to reach out to Muslim countries.

"That was not his task and that's not the task of NASA," Gibbs said.

Bolden, though, said last month in the interview that it was President Obama who gave him that task. He made a similar claim in February.

The White House also backed up Bolden last week when his remarks first stirred controversy. A White House spokesman last Tuesday said Obama wants NASA to engage with the world's best scientists and that to meet that challenge, NASA must "partner with countries around the world like Russia and Japan, as well as collaboration with Israel and with many Muslim-majority countries."
Video of Gibbs denying NASA chief Charles Bolden's claim to Al Jazeera that one priority of NASA 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 and math and engineering.




Blatantly obvious, common sense exit question - if NASA chief Charles Boldon's Muslim claim is so absurd and being that he directly said that the Muslim outreach goal came straight from Obama himself, why does Charles Boldon still have a job?

Wouldn't he have been fired for such an absurd claim if it were not true?
