Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Maybe he is a muslim, maybe he isnt. I'll have to agree with Colin Powell when he paid tribute to that American soldier Kareem Rashad Sultan Khan who fought and died for his country. Is he less of a patriot or hero or soldier or American just because he was a muslim? How many of you have made that sacrifice for your country? As a foreigner, it is hard to understand a mentality which can support a christian man who sends your sons and daughters to their death in an unnecessary oil war, yet have hatred for a muslim man who sacrifices his life for your country.
