Student's tall tale revealed - The Boston Globe

Well looks like that student who claimed to be visited by the department of homeland security was just joshing us all along.
But yesterday, the student confessed that he had made it up after being confronted by the professor who had repeated the story to a Standard-Times reporter.
The professor, Brian Glyn Williams, said he went to his former student's house and asked about inconsistencies in his story. The 22-year-old student admitted it was a hoax, Williams said.

No reason was given for the hoax, but we here at Last Word think it might have been a version of "my dog ate my homework" for the war on terrorism era.
