White House Denies NASA Remark on Muslim Outreach

This is the comment they were talking about by head of NASA Charles Bolden; "foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering". A few things; took them a long time to walk that comment back, and what exactly was Bolden told that was apparently taken so wrong?

"The White House is contradicting the NASA administrator's claim that President Barack Obama assigned him to reach out to Muslims on science matters.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Monday that such activities are not among Bolden's assigned tasks. He said administration officials have spoken with NASA about the matter.
