Terrorist attack survivors outraged by White House guest
The Washington Times ^ | 12/14/11 | Ashish Kumar Sen

Survivors of a 1996 terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 U.S. servicemen are offendedthat 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.

Will no one rid me of this troublesome Priest? Makes you wonder why the cowardly Republicans haven’t impeached this worthless POS yet.

OK, so the POTUS welcomes some terrorist who blew up some our troopers...and yet, yesterday, he (and his wife) were hailed as our soldiers’ biggest cheerleaders before, during and in “finishing” this war????
Is there no shame with this couple, do they think we are all really THAT stupid, do the troops paraded out for these photo ops really buy this crap?????
Even on FR, there has been little comment on the stunning chutzpah displayed by the POS POTUS/FLOTUS yesterday at Ft. Bragg...
are we just getting used to this?

" ... are we just getting used to this? "

No .. we've been terrorized.

The war on terror has never been.

What HAS happened is; We, the American people, have been cowered into a corner of ineffectualness by the thought that .. the answer to a lot of problems and dangerous people is a bullet.

No one wants to say that, but we couch in words that sinple thought.

Right behind that thought is our God given sense of morality and respect of life.

The enemy uses that against us to rape us.

We are victims of rape and of terror.

If we bring evidence before a magistrate, including the rape kit, we're pretty much told .. "Ya should'a kept your legs cl;osed"


Men and warriors are frustrated by our own inaction and it is taking its toll on the overall condition of the American fabric ... one thread at a time.

He and the Wookie will be on vacations for at least 1/2 of the 402 days. Take comfort in that.

Ex-Iran Guard commander visits White House with Iraq leader

"Louis J. Freeh, who served as FBI director in the Clinton administration and the early months of the George W. Bush administration, said it was shocking that Mr. al-Maliki would include Mr. al-Amiri in his visit to Washington. "
