Just what they'll [Imam and Mrs. Imam'll] be doing -- their scheduled stops include Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Bahrain and Qatar -- remains a bit of a mystery.
A State Department aide yesterday told The Post that Rauf's mission is "to foster a greater understanding about the region around the world among Muslim majority communities."
Whatever that means.I think it means NASA's top spot was already taken. I think it also means the GZM has the Obama seal of approval.
