So it looks like this clock that he claims to have "invented" was not constructed or designed by him. He basically took a production clock that he purchased, took it out of the plastic enclosure, and then put it in a case to make it look like a project of his.

So what's the deal with a muslim kid bringing a clock to school that "resembles a bomb"? I don't know, but it also turns out that his dad is a Sharia activist. Hmmm...

It's not an 'invention'. It is a triggering device.

Any idiot can see this.

If you can't, try nibbling a pop tart into the shape of a 'gun' and see how fast you get arrested and expelled from school.

And his uncle owns a business called "Twin Towers Transportation Corp." This family is into pushing peoples buttons and Ahmed's clock was almost certainy intended to provoke a reaction that could be labeled "Islamophobia".

Anyone who has ever worked in electronics, experimented with electronics, or built anything (and I have, since I was a kid) knows that is all he did. It is a commercial clock. He "invented" nothing. The kid is a fraud, and Obama fell for it (no surprise).

I will make a bet that CNN or BSNBC will NOT be covering that. They won't do anything that will impact their agenda or their creation in the White House. Like telling the truth.

This is one more embarrassment for an administration that has a long history of them. Or to be more accurate, an administration that is one long embarrassment.

Well ofcourse, thats what science leaning teens do. Take things apart, put them together. Many articles already dissected his clock, including the best tech engineers at Facebook etc before the slow Tea Party crowd got to it:

If he pulled a fast one I'm not sure how this would be any different than what James O'keefe does. Exposing ignorance.

Did O'Keefe get invited to the White House?

Oh, yeah, he's not a muslim.

Id like to see him try and bring his "clock" onto an airplane or into the White House. If he brought that "clock" into any Federal building I can guarantee you that guns would be pulled by FPS officers and their contracted guards.
