President Obama broke his silence on the Ground Zero mosque debate during a speech at tonight’s Ramadan dinner at the White House. Based on that, can you guess on which side of the issue he falls? I know the suspense is probably just too much, so here you go.

Update: Doug Ross takes issue.

Update II: Read carefully the Associated Press caption under a photo of Obama speaking at the White House’s Ramadan dinner:


Can’t the AP pony up some of those fact-checkers they used for Palin’s book and have them instead proof their own articles?

Update III: Statement from 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America

Update IV: Well of course — Obama clarified last night’s remarks to reporters this morning in Florida:

Obama told reporters in Florida that he was speaking strictly on religious freedom, and that “in this country we treat everybody equally and in accordance with the law, regardless of race, regardless of religion.”

“I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there,” Obama said. “I was commenting very specifically on the right people have that dates back to our founding. That’s what our country is about.

Obama has no problem telling Israel they shouldn’t build apartments in East Jerusalem, but he’s withholding his opinion on the wisdom of constructing a mosque next to where Islamofascists murdered thousands in the country of which he’s president?

Update V: I can’t believe Obama hasn’t picked up on this spin yet: It’s not a mosque — it’s basically just a Muslim YMCA.
