Direct from The Blaze:
An excerpt from the interview now appears on Breitbart: http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2015/09/23/glenn-beck-ahmeds-clock-dog-whistle-islamists/ 9/23/2015.
Slice or dice as any observer may: the “clock in a box” appears to have been manufactured and only the works taken out and moved to the Vaultz box.
“Ahmed Mohamed” has become an international celebrity for “building” a clock, a project that involved no science project, no canned hobby plans, and no discernible reason involving intellectual bravado or curiosity (and none was offered in detention). That publicity cannot be undone — nor may President Obama’s famous tweet: “Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.”
In some parts of the world, a loyal lie trumps an inconvenient truth; however, the United States of America, among other nations, is not one of those geopolitical spaces. It will pick up the tools of good old British Empiricism — reverse engineering everything; recapitulating the building of the clock — and apply them, and I believe it will take that tool kit into the social realm and the realm of language and language behavior.
There may be more to this story than has surfaced, but where there is additional data to be found, it probably will be found — and where permitted by long-standing custom and law, it will be reported.
