Newsmax Misrepresents Obama's Statement on 'Ground Zero Mosque'
Topic: Newsmax

In a Sept. 10 Newsmax article, David Patten suggested that President Obama "specifically addressed the wisdom of placing a 15-story, $100 million community center and mosque two blocks from ground zero."

But he didn't. As the Washington Post's Greg Sargent points out, Obama merely once again reiterated the legal right for the project to proceed. While Obama was asked about the wisdom of locating it there, Obama did not specifically answer that question.

Patten's article was little more than a way to attack Obama by invoking Debra Burlingame, "he sister of an American Airlines pilot who died in the 9/11 attacks," who smeared Obama as, in Patten's words, "more sensitive to Muslim sensibilities than to those of people in the United States." Patten made no apparent attempt to contact any other source to react to Obama's statement.
