As Twitchy reported, both Jordanian state TV and the country’s information ministry claim that failed suicide bomber Sajida Al Rishawi and al Qaeda operative Ziyad al-Karbouli have been executed in Jordan in direct retaliation for the video showing the killing of Jordanian pilot Maaz al-Kassasbeh.
Not messing around, indeed. Jordan’s King Abdullah was in Washington, D.C., Tuesday as a guest of Vice President Biden and met very briefly with President Obama after news of the killing of Kassasbeh broke.
The press pool was allowed in for a photo op with the two leaders that lasted around 30 seconds.
The Washington Examiner notes that an angry Abdullah also met with members of the House Armed Services Committee. Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr., a veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan, “said there was no mention of President Obama during the bipartisan meeting, either by King Abdullah or by any of the lawmakers in the room.”
In the meantime, be assured that no one is angrier about the brutal immolation of Kassasbeh than Obama.
