Iraq Lie Wins Hannah Montana Tickets

AN IRAQ lie: “GARLAND, Texas (AP) — An essay that won a 6-year-old girl four tickets to a Hannah Montana concert began with the powerful line: “My daddy died this year in Iraq.”

While gripping, it was not true — and now the girl may lose her tickets after her mom acknowledged to contest organizers it was all a lie…

“We did the essay and that’s what we did to win,” Priscilla Ceballos, the mother, said in an interview with Dallas TV station KDFW. “We did whatever we could do to win.”

She had identified the soldier as Sgt. Jonathon Menjivar, but the Department of Defense has no record of anyone with that name dying in Iraq. Caulfield said the mother has admitted to the deception.

At least she got ticket. What did Tony Blair get for his porkies?
