A week into Ahmed Mohamed’s 15 minutes of fame and the cracks in this liberal poster child continue to widen. As more details surface, it becomes increasingly apparent that the teen lied about his “creation,” then refused to cooperate with police, and is now getting rewarded with fame and all sorts of free goodies. Which, given the relish Ahmed’s displaying in soaking it all up, almost makes you wonder if was all part of the plan to begin with.
And now, throwing fuel on the building fire controversy surrounding Ahmed’s possible hoax is the revelation from Ahmed’s older sister, Eyman, that she previously was suspended from the same school for three days. The reason? Apparently, over fears — claimed by a fellow student — that Eyman “wanted to blow up the school.”
