Obama did the right thing and spoke in favor of the project at the White House Iftar tonight. Kudos to Mayor Bloomberg for taking the lead on this. A true profile in courage. As for the president, better late than never.
Interesting factoid in his speech about President Jefferson hosting the first Iftar at the White House – fir the Turkish and Tunisian Ambassadors.
Yet another reason to appreciate Thomas “I cannot live without books” Jefferson.
