Obama hosts commander linked to terror attack that killed 19 US servicemen

via Terrorist attack survivors outraged by White House guest – Washington Times.

Survivors of a 1996 terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 U.S. servicemen are offended that an Iraqi official with ties to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps was welcomed to the White House this week.

“Outrage at the visit to the White House really doesn’t describe what I feel,” said William M. Schooley, who survived the June 25, 1996, bombing of the Khobar Towers.

“I watched outstanding airmen die that night and witnessed horrific carnage. The survivors of Khobar Towers have been swept under the rug and now have received the greatest insult,” he added.

The Washington Times first reported Tuesday that Hadi Farhan al-Amiri, who serves as Iraq’s transportation minister, was part of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s delegation to the White House on Monday.

The FBI linked Iran’s Revolutionary Guard to the terrorist attack on the Khobar Towers. No Iranians were named in the indictment, and the Saudi Hezbollah was blamed for the blast.

The Revolutionary Guard also has supported Shiite militant groups that have attacked U.S. troops in Iraq, Western officials say.

As a commander of the Badr Corps, Mr. al-Amiri would have known Brig. Gen. Ahmad Sherifi, the Revolutionary Guard general who is suspected of conducting the attack, he added.

Mr. al-Amiri was commander of the Badr Corps, which was the armed wing of the Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq.

The Badr Corps was made up of thousands of defectors from the Iraqi army and refugees who fled Saddam Hussein’s regime. It received military and financial support from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

In 2003, the Badr Corps changed its name to the Badr Organization of Reconstruction and Development and pledged to disarm. Western officials and analysts are skeptical about whether the group kept its promise.

Mr. al-Amiri remained active in the Badr Corps during the late 1980s and 1990s, when he was working on resistance efforts against Saddam’s regime.

  1. “Iraqi official with ties to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.”

    Translation: The peace in Iraq is already lost.

    But, on the plus side, maybe he can put in a good word for Barry’s “pretty please” request to have the drone returned.

  2. Does it really surprise us at this visit? Do we really believe that these people come carrying the peace pipe.No words at this time.

  3. Incredible. If you made this up, no one would believe it. Obama has to go. The Democrats refuse to connect the dots, and it’s making the US unsafe.

  4. No doubt this THUG is a COUSIN TO OBUUUMMAA THE GREAT and as the WIGGER has stated, HE STANDS WITH ISLAM OVER THE REPUBLIC OF THE U S A. What should happen here is to AREST THIS THUG and send him to GUANTANAMO HOTEL with the rest of his CAMEL DRIVERS. LOCK AND LOAD. PS: SEND CLINTON THERE ALSO FOR INVITING THIS CRUD HERE. LOCK AND LOAD.

  5. One can expect no more from the terrorists in the White House and their associates!

  6. Friends of Nobama the Muslim. The Liar-In-Chief who stole his way into our white house. His friends are all people who need to kill Christian Americans and destroy the USA as a final part of their Caliph so they can bring home some kind of king pervert.

  7. As I said before,OBAMA is a TRAITOR and a Islamic supremacist.

    Of Course ALL Muslims are Radicals. ALL of them.

    • Robert, I saw this BBC documentary about Obama/Odinga before his election to the US Presidency and I thought then I hope the American people are doing their homework…
      But no, they bought the media hype, the dishonest media who were complicit in hiding the truth, and not reporting the facts.
      No INVESTIGATIVE reporting, no vetting of Obama, in fact they are still his lapdogs, which makes me suspect that the media is bought and paid for by Marxists, Saudi interests, and far Left Greenie Climate Change shysters with a world wide agenda..

  8. He is on the other side
