  Federal agents' visit was a hoax: 12/ 24/ 2005
Federal agents' visit was a hoax: 12/ 24/ 2005: "The UMass Dartmouth student who claimed to have been visited by Homeland Security agents over his request for 'The Little Red Book' by Mao Zedong has admitted to making up the entire story.

The 22-year-old student tearfully admitted he made the story up to his history professor, Dr. Brian Glyn Williams, and his parents, after being confronted with the inconsistencies in his account."

Although there was suspicion from the start that this was a hoax, the original reporter stuck by his story, until this latest addendum by the student.

Thanks to Bruce Shneier for this blog post on this.
