Talk to Al Jazeera - Charles Bolden

NASA ADMINISTRATOR CHARLES BOLDEN ON OBAMA'S DIRECTION: Before I became the NASA administrator he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math. He wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third and perhaps foremost, he 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, math, and engineering.

I'm very impressed with the Al Jazeera reporter. He's very informed and apparently has a highly-refined bull$h|+ detector. He asks very pointed questions for which Bolden has some very unsatisfying answers. I wish some American reporters would question Obama and Bolden this way.
