White House Quietly Courts Muslims in U.S.

This piece in the NY Times argues that the Obama administration is quietly reaching out to American Muslims. While the article does detail some nice gestures from the administration, the President has yet to visit an American mosque or meet with American Muslim leaders.

That would be fine if he didn't visit any American religious institutions, but he has met with American religious leaders from other groups as well as their respective places of worship.

If the man can go to Cairo and give a nice speech there, how much of a stretch is it to visit a mosque in D.C.?...oh, Barack, I wish you were half the man we all imagined you to be...
