Former Commander Of Terrorist Quds Force Meets President Obama In White House
Hadi Ameri promises obedience.
By Kambiz Assai
OfficialWire, 13 Dec 2011 - Iranians and the world watched anxiously as President Obama started his meeting with Prime Minister Maliki . The event drew particular attention as Maliki has been condemned by many in Iraq as being directly commanding the massacre of civilians in Camp Ashraf in northern Iraq.
To make the matter sterner, it was found that a tribunal in Spain has been investigating Maliki’s acts as crimes against humanity and war crimes. The court this month, summoned the commander of the Iraqi army and two other officers to appear in court and answer the accusations made against them. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki will also have to come to court to discuss the crimes after he leaves office and his immunity is over.
But of still more revelation was when it became known that a notorious terrorist Farhan Abdollah Al-Ameri, was also to be in the delegation to enter the White House as part of the Iraqi team meeting with President Obama.
Hadi Farhan al-Amiri, Iraq’s current transportation minister, accompanied Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and several other top Baghdad advisers on the high-profile visit to Washington timed with the official wind-down of U.S. military involvement in Iraq.
Farhan Abdollah Al-Ameri, who is known by Tehran rulers by the name of Hadi Ameri, was born in 1954 in Iraq. His wife is Iranian and his children lived (at least until a few years ago) in Iran as well.
He has always lived in his own house in Tehran in the area dedicated to the commanders of the Quds Battalions. In fact he was always in Tehran during the years of war with Iraq and was among the commanders of the Guards Ground Battalions. While maintaining his role as commander of the Badr 9 Battalion, he also took command of all military operations in Iraq in 1991. Ameri was then made the commander in chief of the Badr 9 Headquarters.

He later went on to study commanding tactics in the Imam Hossein University of the Iranian Guards Corps. Farhan al-Amiri, and he received regular payments from Iran in his account number 3014.
Following the fall of Sadam Hossein, Hadi Farhan al-Amiri, continued to have close relations with the Iranian hierarchy, especially with General Ghassem Soleimani, who controls all operations in Iraq.
During the rule of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein , Amiri served as a commander of the Badr Corps -- a group backed at the time by the IRGC, which has been linked to several attacks on western targets.
The presence in the White House of someone with so close connections to the most notorious part of the Iranian hierarchy and the IRGC does not fit in with the Obama administrations attempts to control any terrorist activities threatening the U.S.
Obama, as a U.S. senator, co-sponsored a bill calling for the designation of the Guard Corps as a terror organization .Members of the IRGC have also been linked to the alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the U.S. One of the defendants charged is a member of the Quds Force. Other Quds members were subsequently sanctioned by the Treasury Department. The IRGC was also believed to be involved in the bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia in 1996. That attack killed 19 members of the U.S. military.
It is therefore a great question mark in front of the President Obama’s recent meeting with such figures whose hands are no doubt connected to so many terrorist activities, many of which have caused American casualties.
