Obama Speaks Out on Behalf of Muslim Americans

Hosted by

At today's news conference, President Obama was asked about the furor over the mosque near Ground Zero, the threat to burn copies of the Koran and the growth of anti-Muslim sentiment in America. He said what he most admired about President Bush -- after September 11 -- was that he made "crystal clear" that America was not at war with Islam. Mariam Memarsadeghi is an Iranian-American human rights activist and founder of Tavaana E-learning Institute for Iranian Civil Society.
