In a special Tell Me More broadcast from New York, host Michel Martin revisits one of the most intense debates the city has seen in years. The proposed building of an Islamic cultural center near the site of the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan sparked a national firestorm, last summer. Critics of center said it was planned too close to the site of the September eleventh attacks. Martin speaks with the cleric behind the project, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, about the controversy and the latest on the center.
