Since the story of Ahmed “Alarm Clock” Mohammed broke, half of America has become demolitions experts. Charles C. W. Cooke – one of my two favorite political writers in America today – notes that Ahmed Mohammed’s clock looks a lot more like a bomb than a chewed-up pop tart looks like a gun. He’s half-right; the poptart wasn’t a gun; the clock looked like a prop from a community-theater production of “24”.
The other half? They seem to think they’re clairvoyant; the loathsome Richard Dawkins, for starters.
