So No Outreach to the Moslem World?

Great. This part of the Islamic world didn't get an outreach from our adminsitration.

We wouldn't meet with the leader of Crimea's Moslems who oppose Russia's conquest of the region:

Mustafa Dzhemilev was seeking to meet with visiting U.S. Vice President Joe Biden in Kiev, the Tatar assembly said late Monday. However, a senior U.S. administration official said they didn't meet and no meeting had been planned. Mr. Dzhemilev couldn't be reached on Tuesday for comment.

You'd think that we might want to leverage opposition to Russia's occupation of Crimea rather than act like talking to opponents of Russia's aggression is inconvenient for our smart diplomacy.
