White House approves mosque atop powered bones of 9-11 victims

Barack Obama delivered a strong defense on Friday night of a proposed Muslim community center and mosque near ground zero in Manhattan, at a White House dinner celebrating Ramadan.

The opposition says this goes beyond a simple question of religious freedom. They equate a mosque at the site of the destruction of the Twin Towers the same as victory dances on the graves of 9-11 victims.

Some political strategists have said Obama's approval of the mosque will have a negative impact on Democrats in the November elections.
