US Marines have arrested Qais al-Khazali and Hadi al-Ameri, Hadi visited Obama White House in 2011

Hadi al-Ameri, a leader of the Iranian-backed siege of the US Embassy in Baghdad that visited the White House with other Iraqi officials in 2011 during the Obama administration has been arrested by U.S. marines, according to a reports.

Hadi Al-Amiri was spotted at the scene of the embassy attack — where crowds chanted “Down, Down USA!” following U.S. airstrikes that killed fighters of an Iranian-backed militia — underscores how the figure once seen as a potential partner is now viewed by the U.S. government as a dangerous Iran proxy.

Khazali is known as the founder and leader of the Special Groups in Iraq.
