Spokesman Says That Is Not Among Administrator's Assigned
White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs says President Barack Obama
did not assign the new NASA administrator the task of reaching out
to Muslim governments, contrary to Bolden's remarks in a televised
interview with Al-Jazeera network.

The Associated Press reports that Gibbs said Monday that such
outreach activities are not part of his job description, and that
administration officials have spoken to him about the matter.
Bolden said in a recent interview with the Muslim television
network that Obama had specifically tasked him to reach out to
Muslim nations to encourage their youth to become more involved
with math and science, and to "feel good about their historic
contribution to science and engineering." The remark has been
highly criticized by conservative activists and commentators.
