He got exactly what he and his father were after.The kid was arrested as the device did resemble an explosive device. Ahmed continued to maintain that he had invented the Radio Shack Micronta clock and pencil box:
Ahmed the Fake Clock Maker was widely praised, including one bonehead President of the United States:
Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It's what makes America great.
— President Obama (@POTUS) September 16, 2015
Ahmed the Fake Clock Maker did get to visit the White House and meet with the too quick to jump on phony racism President, but only as part of a group as the dopey President attempted to extricate himself from the pile of manure he leaped head first into.
In case you were wondering the what the point of all this effort was, wonder no more. Shortly after Ahmed the Fake Clock Maker was identified as Ahmed the Fake Clock Maker it was announced that the family was moving to Qatar. They did move to Qatar but returned to Irving Texas in June for “summer vacation.”
In case you’re not familiar with the language, “summer vacation” is Arabic for “I’m going to sue your ass off for the stupid thing I did.”
Citing a pattern of disproportionate disciplinary actions for black students in the Irving Independent School District (ISD) and a history of anti-Muslim sentiment in Irving, the lawsuit alleges that Ahmed was discriminated against based on his race and religion. It also claims his Fourth Amendment rights were violated when he was interrogated by police and principal Daniel Cummings for over an hour without the presence of his parents before he was arrested.
Ahmed’s family no longer lives in Texas. They moved to Qatar in October. But in June, they returned to Irving for summer vacation. That’s when they hired Hutchinson & Stoy, the Texas firm also representing a Baylor University student who claims the school ignored reports that she was raped by a football player.
Ahmed the Fake Clock Maker was widely hailed as a celebrity among the ignorati. Josh Welch is still waiting for his 15 minutes.
Josh Welch, a white Maryland kid with ADHD who was 7 years old when he was kicked out of school for chewing a Pop-Tart into the shape of a pistol and pretending to shoot other students with it, must be puzzled.
Where’s his White House invitation? Where’s his chance to start networking at Facebook? His parents were forced to hire a lawyer and spent a year and a half just trying to get the suspension erased from the kid’s record. They were repeatedly refused.
Ahmed the Fake Clock Maker is a publicity hound, but he comes by it honestly. He is cut from the same cloth as his father, who twice has run for President of the Sudan. Dad also asserted that the Curious Clock Caper will help spread Islam in America:
Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, father of ‘Clock Boy’ Ahmed, shared another 9/11 ‘Truther’ Facebook post, only this time in Arabic, claiming that the clock incident will lead to spreading Islam in America.
The kid is a fake and a phony who built nothing, yet read just about any account of him (including the WaPo account above) and you won’t see one word of that. This was a setup right from the beginning and it was and is all about the money.
