Mosque controversy could hurt U.S. war effort

August 20, 2010

The controversy over the building of the mosque/community center a few blocks from the site of the World Trade Towers has risen to the level where it has caught the attention of the world and in particular the Muslim Community.

One has to ask if the demagoguery by certain politicians against the building site is undermining the mission of our troops in Afghanistan who are so desperately fighting to win the hearts and minds of the Afghan people who are predominantly Muslim.
