Obama rebuts anti-Muslim rhetoric in first U.S. mosque visit
BALTIMORE -- Seeking to rebut what he views as perilous election-year bombast about Muslims, President Barack Obama is at a mosque in Baltimore on Wednesday, his first visit to such a site in the United States. "Muslim Americans keep us safe," Obama told the audience, crediting the contributions Muslims have made to communities. "They are our police. They are our fire fighters. They're in (the Department of) Homeland Security."
