Florida Teenager's Iraq Adventure.

Farris Hasan, a 16-year-old high school student from Florida decided to go to Iraq after 1 week of "immersion journalism".

As luck would have it, the teenager found himself at the Iraq-Kuwait line sometime on December 13, and the border security was extra tight because of Iraq's December 15 parliamentary elections. The timing saved him from a dangerous trip.

"If they'd let me in from Kuwait, I probably would have died," he acknowledged. "That would have been a bad idea."
