Teenage Clock Maker Not Likely To Get One-on-one Meeting With Obama: Spokesman

Ahmed Mohamed, the Texas teen arrested after he brought a homemade clock to school, will attend a White House astronomy event but is not likely to get a one-on-one meeting with President Barack Obama, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. At the daily briefing on Monday, Earnest said the House was pleased Mohamed was coming to the White House this evening but a personal meeting might not take place given the size of the event. Mohamed and his father stirred up controversy last week after they met with Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who is the first sitting president accused of war crimes by the International Criminal Court for allegedly leading a campaign of terror in Darfur.
