A national defense think tank is celebrating another major victory in the "Clock Boy" case.
The Center for Security Policy (CSP) announced that the Texas Court of Appeals for the Fifth District in Dallas, Texas, recently dismissed – in its entirety – the frivolous defamation lawsuit filed against CSP defendants by Mohamed Mohamed on behalf of his son, Ahmed Mohamed … better known as the "Clock Boy."
As OneNewsNew reported in September 2015, Ahmed – then a 15-year-old student – became the center of a nationwide controversy when he brought a device to his Irving, Texas, middle school that closely resembled the timing device for an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).
The ensuing bomb scare led to his arrest and suspension from school.
Center for Security Policy President and CEO Frank Gaffney pointed out – in what appeared to be a well-coordinated public relations stunt – that representatives of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) stepped forward immediately to defend the boy and trumpet the case in the media as another case of Islamophobia.
"From that point on, it's been one big act of political warfare,” Gaffney asserted. “And our organization called them out on it and made the point."
Gaffney is pleased now that the lawsuit has been completely thrown out.
"And I'm hoping this will be not only the end of this terrible matter, but also a strong message to these [Muslim] Brotherhood operatives who use law fare – as it's called – to try to silence those of us who know what they're up to and feel obliged to warn our countrymen and women about it."
Gaffney expressed his gratitude to the American Freedom Law Center for defending CSP in this controversial lawsuit.
