Government idiocy at its very best – NASA

Of all the stupid government tricks stories I’ve read this week, this one takes the cake.

NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden said Tuesday that President Barack Obama has asked him to “find ways to reach out to dominantly Muslim countries” as the White House pushes the space agency to become a tool of international diplomacy.

Hold it one friggin second. NASA is supposed to be for space exploration and is too bloody expensive to be a “tool for international diplomacy.” How about reaching out to nations that actually have the means to contribute to space exploration? How about reaching out to nations that don’t feel the righteous need to destroy Western civilization? How about reaching out to those who wouldn’t want to hijack the space shuttle and fly it into the Capitol for cripes sake?

Sometimes I wonder what freaking planet these people come from…
