Video: Howard Dean Defends His Stance Against The Proposed Mosque At Ground Zero in Interview With Salon

Greenwald: "Are you proposing a that there be a Muslim free zone in the vicinity of Ground Zero? Dean: "No, that's very silly"

Dean: "The possibility of moving has to be on the table, lets have that discussion"
Howard Dean spoke to me this afternoon for roughly 20 minutes regarding his remarks on a New York City radio station yesterday concerning the proposed Islamic community center in Lower Manhattan, as well as the response he wrote, published today on Salon, to my criticisms. During our conversation, we had a brief dispute about whether, during his radio interview, he advocated for Park 51 to be moved (as I claimed), or whether he merely called for a "dialogue" about that prospect (as he repeatedly claimed today). Here's the part of his WABC interview I had in mind:
DEAN: I got to believe there has to be a compromise here. . . .

Q: You’re calling for a compromise - so are you calling for the mosque to be moved?

DEAN: I think another site would be a better idea, but I would look to do that with the cooperation of the people trying to build the mosque . . . . We ought to work out a compromise so everyone is accommodated by this.
**Update** Part 2, The interviewer from Salon wants so bad for Dean to change his stance, he actually compares opposition to the mosque to asking blacks to sit at the middle of the bus. (at 1:15)
