NOT THE ONION: Meet ’17-Year-Old’ Afghan Child Refugee Ahmad Shah Hosaini

Say hello to “17-year-old” Ahmad Shah Hosaini, an Afghan “refugee” whose story was covered last month in a German newspaper.

According to Vlad Tepes Blog, the article “explains 3 times that this man is a ’17 year old young asylum seeker.'”

The paper at the top says “Welcome to Rendsburg,” which is a city in Northern Germany with a population of around 28,000.

The headline translates to: “The phone as the only connection,” presumably meaning his phone is his only connection to his great-grandchildren in Afghanistan.
