NEW YORK. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said it would be un-American to investigate a Muslim group that seeks to build a mosque two blocks from Ground Zero.
“I’ve said that the government should never — never — be in the business of telling people how they should pray or where they can pray,” said Bloomberg. “That just is out of character for what this nation stands for.”
