Anas Altikriti, who is a British lobbyist for the Muslim Brotherhood, recently met with president Obama and Joe Biden to discuss problems in Iraq. Altikriti, whose father heads Iraq’s Muslim Brotherhood party, has close ties to the terror organization Hamas. Altikriti has publicly backed Hamas andadvocated that Iraqis use “any means and methods” to free themselves from occupation.
He can be seen in the photo above alongside Iraqi Parliament Speaker Usama al-Nujaifiin in the White House Roosevelt Room. The photo was originally published on the official White House Flikr account and the meeting was first highlighted by the blog Harry’s Place.
According to Town Hall, “Nujaifi, Altikriti, and other members of the Iraqi delegation were in town late January to discuss al Qaeda’s growing presence in Iraq. Nujaifi himself was reported to have met twice with President Obama, though it remains unclear if Altikriti accompanied him on both occasions.”
It has been reported that a White House spokesman has confirmed that the purpose of Altikriti’s attendance at the meeting to serve as a translator for al-Nujaifi.
The official photo caption on the photo states: President Barack Obama greets Speaker Osama al-Nujaifi, Iraqi Council of Representatives, after he drops by Vice President Joe Biden’s meeting with the Speaker in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, Jan. 22, 2014.
This administration welcoming known terror-affiliated groups into the White House is not surprising news in the least. President Obama has at least 6 Muslim Brotherhood members in his administration; one even is high up in the Department of Homeland Security. GlobalMBWatch asserts that there are only two possibilities for why Anas Al-Tikriti was allowed into the White House:
“Either the relevant officials had no idea who he really is, not an encouraging notion, or they did know and did not care. The second explanation is particularly disturbing in light of the common belief in Egypt that the Obama administration is supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.”
I think it is likely that the second explanation is true. “I will never negotiate with terrorists.” is beginning to sound a lot like: “I will never monetize the U.S. debt.” Or, “If you like your plan you can keep your plan.”
