After a decent interval of silence after a public outcry, President Barry Obama has sent NASA head Charles Bolton on a Muslim Outer Space Outreach Program encompassing Saudi Arabia, Libya, UAE, Nepal, and culminating in Somalia.
Obama who stated it was important to recognize Muslim contributions to the US's Outer Space program, continued his humanitarian mission last week after naming Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich as his Alien Outreach Czar for expected visitors from Outer Space.
Kucinich's appointment, as the only congressman to have admitted that he was abducted by aliens while sleeping on the couch at actress Shirley MacClaine's house, has been charged with being the official White House Maitre D for all Aliens, illegal, or legal, and whether or not they come from Tijuana , Scottsdale, or Mars.
Ignoring the nation's economic, social, and financial problems, Obama in his 2,347th address to the nation since taking office 19 months ago, hammered home his commitment to helping Muslims blast off into outer space.
"For too long the United States has ignored the startling advancements the Muslim Community has made to exploring outer space," he said sternly.
"If is for that reason I have directed the head of NASA, Charles Bolton to stop by Somalia and meet with their head of Inter Continental Ballistics, Muhammad al-Ba-Boom and share with him some of our latest technology to help them finally get off the ground with their outer space exploratory program.
A spokesman for the President, speaking on background only, said the President was impressed with Somali ballistic progress, even though most Somali's have only managed to launch themselves about 2 feet off the ground, but over 75 yards laterally.
Attempts to reach a person, any person, in charge of Somalia was unsuccessful as there has been no telephone communication in the country for the past 7 years, and any government, if one does exist, is deeply in hiding due to the threat of Pirate attacks and Fatwas issued by Somali Rocket Scientists.
One dissident in the country, who did not wish to be named, was indignant over Obama's offer to help.
"Glory be to God...but we don't need any fake Mullah's help here. We have over 2500 Somalian's in Lewiston Maine on US benefits....how do you think they got there....they didn't swim....they got there on our space shuttle."
"Ignorant Christian BASTARDS.....you're not the only ones that can put a bunch of monkeys into space....only ours didn't come back...Praise be to God!"
