Fox News: Obama Might Catch Backfire for Ahmad-the-Gentle-Clockmaker Story

I figured this was a blogosphere only story, and that we were all just talking to each other.

I was wrong.

Andrew Napolitano is now openly saying he believes the current evidence points to this being a deliberate hoax -- and that the police's theory was right. He says this having himself been one of the early critics of police (as I was -- though, I always insisted that it was proper to ask this kid questions and confiscate the clock; I only questioned the arrest angle).

The rest of the media continues pretending these questions have not been raised, because that's their job -- advancing Social Justice Warrior Narratives for purposes of political advocacy, not investigating or reporting the truth.

The series of disclosures -- that Ahmad did not "invent" a clock, but merely took a Radio Shack clock out of its casing and stuck it in a pencil box; that his sister had been previously suspended for allegedly threatening to blow up the school; that his sister was feeding him his lines when he spoke to Mark Cuban; that the family is collecting money to sue; that Ahmad's dad is a committed activist: that Irving's mayor has been targeted by Muslim activists for rejecting Sharia -- all of these disclosures are, taken together, suggesting this was a deliberate stunt, a provocation intended to trick the very gullible and leftwing and America-hating into adding their support to The Cause.

And of course it worked:
