Is the US paying to set up Mosques around the world?

They are if you believe Fareed Zakaria at Newsweek:

To that end, early in its tenure the Bush administration began a serious effort to seek out and support moderate Islam. Since then, Washington has funded mosques, schools, institutes, and community centers that are trying to modernize Islam around the world.

We should be encouraging groups like the one behind this project, not demonizing them. Were this mosque being built in a foreign city, chances are that the U.S. government would be funding it. . . .

Is this really true? Would the US help set up Christian churches around the world?
