    The kid is in a good place, obv its the kids families decision to move to Qatar. Im not really much interested in this topic but it must be reminded that Qatar and the USA are allies, according to the Qatar gov and the US gov. Its a conspiracy theory that Bush was behind 9/11, or that the US fiances Al Qaeda or that Qatar fiances Al Qaeda.

    Not fraud...threatening American citizens and a willingness to build things that can set off explosives. We'll see his name again...on the terrorist watch list...after his Muslim teachers get through explaining the evils of America to him and how a nice boy like him should be allowed to build and set off all of the bombs he wants to.

    I'll bet his "Uncle BoBo" in Washington is very is very proud of him.

    No Jeff, it was a case about 10 years ago, you can google it, unless you were being sarcastic.

    Never doubt that the Middle East has produced an ancient tradition of con-artistry.

    Looks like he's moving overseas. He'd better be carefull since if he's still making or repurposeing 'clocks', Obama may soon send him a little AGM-114 present by drone.

    I doubt that claim very much. The most likely explanation is that suspensions were overturned because he was black and the school faced lawsuits for "discriminating".

    Isn't that wonderful....He has been visiting "international dignitaries" since the uproar. Why the frack did he meet with Omar al-Bashir?

    Kick that family to the curb and don't let them ever return to America.

    Those flying Imams anything like the flying monkeys of another fable ???

    The "Trust, but Verify" of Reaganism from 25-30 years ago doesn't quite work with Today's 'Evil Empire', running a 1400 year old heritage ...
    ... especially with dogma and practices such as this;
    [/SIZE]Islam's doctrines of deception

    A piece that some might find helps to read more than once and consider ...

    Do you even read your own links?
    1) Those are the titles used in the articles/links, take the beef to those editors.
    2) Yes, which is why I posted them for others to read and access, avoiding comment of my own that might bias them.

    Seems to work since you read them.

    Main point here is that the "episode" wasn't an only one or first of it's kind. HOWEVER, the full school records aren't open to be released (reported blocked by his parents), so we have some personal claims/opinions of one or two loosely associated with the situation, a.k.a. second-hand or hearsay.

    AND, as is often the case, there's more to the story than what is first reported when sensationalized by the LameStreamMedia (and some posters here).

    BTW, seems that teacher might have taught more than be just critical of authority. Also, this needs to be taken in context of earlier actions by his sister and local political activism of his father (and local branch of CAIR) to show this isn't as "isolated" as some try to present.
