Shady Imam: Ground Zero Mosque Meant to Prevent Another 9/11 or Something

How many times is this deadbeat slumlord going to change his story? Now we're supposed to take at face value the building of a mega-mosque at Ground Zero is meant to prevent another attack? Who is this clown kidding?
The imam behind the controversial plan to build a Muslim culture center near the site of New York's Sept. 11 attack said Sunday the project is meant to prevent a similar attack.

In an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes" program, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf said he feels duty bound to help protect non-Muslim Americans from such violence.

Rauf said building the center, which will include a prayer room, two blocks from the destroyed World Trade Center is "the right thing to do."

"…America needs it and the Muslim world needs it," he said.

"We have to wage peace."

Critics say the center's proximity to Ground Zero is insensitive, while supporters say politicians have wrongly commandeered the emotionally charged debate before U.S. congressional elections on Nov. 2.

Asked if it was insensitive to build the center so close to Ground Zero, Rauf said: "We wanted to prevent another 9/11 … We wanted a platform … to strengthen the voice of the moderates."
Since 9/11 there have been thousands of attacks by Muslims extremists worldwide. What has he done to "prevent" any of those? If this "man of peace" is here to prevent attacks, why is the terror threat against us supposedly the highest since 9/11?
