Khizr Khan Changes Story Again

He originally claimed that he didn't attend a speaking event in Canada because his "travel privileges were being reviewed."

A US citizen for more than 30 years, Mr Khan, a lawyer, was notified on Sunday evening that his "travel privileges had been reviewed," according to Ramsay Talks, the company behind the talks, based in Toronto and hosted by Bob Ramsay.

That claim came from the company announcing he had withdrawn from the speaking engagement hustle, but Khizr Khan backed it up with an attached statement:

"This turn of events is not just of deep concern to me but to all my fellow Americans who cherish our freedom to travel abroad. I have not been given any reason as to why."

When questioned about this hard-to-believe story -- as a US citizen, he can't have his "travel privileges" (which isn't even a concept in American law) cancelled -- he refused to comment further or explain his curious claim.

Khan himself is doing little to clear up the confusion. An email sent to the KM Khan law office, which lists Khizr Khan as an attorney, on Monday was returned with a brief response: I have no comments." It's unclear whether it was Khan himself who replied. Multiple media outlets, including The Washington Post, Reuters, McClatchy, and Politico, reported that Khan declined or did not respond to additional requests for comment.

Khan himself is doing little to clear up the confusion.
William Stock, an immigration lawyer based in Philadelphia, professed his puzzlement about Khans account. Mr. Khan has not provided any details that would allow me to figure out what the heck hes talking about, said Stock.

Well, now Khizr Khan has decided to make "comments," and the comments are, apparently, that he was not telling the truth the first go-round.

He now says the people reviewing his "travel privileges" were not the US government, but... just he himself.

Khan changed his story of what happened last week.

In a March 17 email to a Richmond, Va. radio station, Khan said that it was his own decision not to travel abroad.

"I did not want to go through the hassle of uncertain rules and capricious implementation," Khan told WCVE's Hawes Spencer.

Agitators of all stripes are given to creating hoaxing to advance their political agendas. The leftwing media is always suspicious that any right-leaning actor is just making stuff up, but tends to believe every damn claim coming from a lefty.

That didn't happen here, though -- Khan's claim was too silly for even our corrupt and incompetent media to believe it. They repeated Khan's claims, but were by and large skeptical.

But now he's confessed this was all bullshit from the start -- and I don't see anyone in the leftist media reporting this.
