You won't believe this story. I can't decide if I should admire this kid for his guts, or make fun of him for his stupidity. But what a story!

Give the kid credit, at least he took his school work seriously.

This one, from his local TV station, says his sister said he was flying back Monday. Probably just scheduling - it's holiday weekend.

Maybe I am just too suspicious but I have to believe there is more going on here than we are led to believe. For instance, don't you need a visa to get into a place like Iraq? Something is fishy here.

He was able to obtain a visa because both of his parents were born in Iraq. Of course, I would have thought that minors would need parental consent before being able to obtain a visa, particularily to a place like Iraq. But maybe not.

Shouldn't the parents or (if it is a boarding school) the school hold some responsibility for a 16 year old disappearing to a foreign country? Wouldn't he technically fall into the category of runaway and be remanded into state custody while an investigation occurred? And, if it is a boarding school, shouldn't someone be investigating what sort of supervision they provide minors?
