Three days after embracing genocidal Sudanese killer, Clock Kid meets Obama

It was a big night last night for the 14-year-old Texas kid who made a clock that looked like a bomb and brought it to school.  Ahmed Mohamed attended the White House "Astronomy Night" and, at the reception, got to exchange words with the president of the United States.

Fox News:

The 14-year-old Texas boy who caused an uproar when he brought a clock to school that police said looked like a bomb attended a White House event Monday night where he briefly interacted with President Obama.

Ahmed Mohamed was one of some 300 guests attending the White House's Astronomy Night. As the president moved through the throngs of attendees after making brief remarks, Mohamed was one of the many who greeted him.

He appeared to approach Obama and exchange pleasantries as other visitors snapped pictures on their phones, although the pair was mostly obscured from view by the crowd.

The White House first reached out to Mohamed after he gained national attention when he was pulled from class and handcuffed after showing the digital clock to teachers at his Dallas high school.

Obama responded by Tweeting him an invitation to Astronomy Night at the White House.

Mohamed also stirred controversy just days ago when he was pictured with Sudanese president and alleged war criminal Omar al-Bashir.

Al-Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court on charges of genocide and war crimes for atrocities linked to the Darfur fighting.

In his Astronomy Night remarks, Obama said he spoke earlier Monday with the astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

“This is some of the most fun I have on this job,” Obama said.

Does the Secret Service look a little nervous to you in this picture?

Perhaps the president should have asked young Mr. Mohamed how his meeting with Sudan's mass murdering President Omar Bashir went.  The young boy embraced the accused war criminal and gave us a great, big goober-eating grin while doing it.

Bashir is accused of murdering more than 800,000 Sudanese.  But that is apparently not enough to get the president to avoid Ahmed like the plague.  Now, forever etched in internet glory, the juxtaposition of the smiling clock kid who palled around with a genocidal maniac who also smiled in greeting the leader of the free world will be available for anyone interested in understanding why President Obama is considered a putz by so many.  His ringing defense and immediate invite to the White House of a kid who may or may not have had other motives for building a clock that looked like a bomb was just to prove how intolerant the rest of us are.
