Of course he was…

Here’s a fun fact [insert note of sarcasm]:

One of the terrorist leaders who attacked our embassy in Baghdad was a visitor to the White House in 2011—during Barack Obama’s presidency.

via the Daily Mail:

The leader of an Iran-backed US embassy siege in Baghdad was welcomed to the White House by Barack Obama eight years ago before becoming Tehran’s ‘point man’ in Iraq.

Hadi al-Amiri was Iraq’s minister of transport under then-Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and stood in the Oval Office as part of Maliki’s delegation on a visit to the White House in December 2011.

On Tuesday, al-Amiri was among those leading the charge against the US embassy in Baghdad when it was stormed and set alight by pro-Iran militants. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo shared a photograph of Amiri amid the rioters, condemning him as an ‘Iranian proxy,’ and calling those shoulder-to-shoulder with him ‘terrorists.’ [Emphasis added.]

According to the Daily Mail, al-Amiri “is head of the Badr Corps, an Iranian vassal, which despite fighting alongside the US against ISIS in 2014 and 2015, has received funding and arms form Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard – a designated terror group.”

After eight years of Barack Obama in the White House, is this a surprise to anyone?

It does make you wonder how many other enemies of the United States were guests of Barack Obama’s while he was in the White House, though, doesn’t it?
