Father of 'Clock Kid' Linked to 9/11 Conspiracy Facebook Posts
There's a disturbing new twist in the story of Ahmed Mohamed, the Texas ninth grader whose homemade clock was mistaken for a bomb by teachers.
The boy's father, Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, runs the Arabic-language National Reform Party Facebook page.
That account has shared a 14-minute conspiracy theory video on the 9/11 attacks and a post that shows the smoking Twin Towers, describing it as a U.S.-sponsored hoax to launch a worldwide war against Islam.
President Obama invited Ahmed to the White House for Astronomy Night on Oct. 19.
At a press conference, Ahmed said he planned to take the president up on his offer.
