His code name was “Johnny Walker” when he worked as an interpreter for U.S. Navy Seal and “American Sniper” Chris Kyle during the Iraq War.
He wrote a book in 2014 about risking his life on 1,000 missions to fight with the Navy Seals in the Iraq War:
The Navy Seals helped Al Ahmady get out of Iraq after two attempts on his life.
He became known as an American this week after a long ten year wait to be a legal citizen of the U.S. Yes, he did it the right way and it is well-deserved.
Riyadh Ahmed Khalaf Al Ahmady took part in a naturalization ceremony in his home city of San Diego, Calif., last week.
SURPRISING SUPPORT FOR TRUMP’S TRAVEL BAN:
Even though his visa was approved during the Obama years, he supports President Trump and surprisingly supports his travel ban on Muslim countries.
In an interview with the Washington Examiner Ahmady spoke about America and President Trump:
“Trump, if he is racist that means he wants to protect his race and his religion. How many Muslims live in the United States? He wants to protect those people no matter what they believe, and they call him racist.”
“I support Trump 100 percent … he loves this country.”

HE WENT ON TO DISCUSS THE BORDER WALL:
“We need to build the wall. Some, if they don’t like this idea, they need to go back to [their] country.”
What is he doing now? Al Ahmady is working for Special Operations in Southern California.
He told American Military News of his plans now that he’s an American citizen:
“My next goal is to deserve to be an American citizen every second. It’s a big deal,” he said. “I reached my goal to become an American citizen. Now I have to live up to it.”
That vow, he said, was not made in front of a crowd – “It’s between me and myself,” he added.
His next mission? Walker wants to embark on a cross-country trip and explore the country and America’s history.
“I want to feel what it was like when the American people had nothing – only a wagon and faith, future – when they traveled from the East Coast to the West Coast, facing mother nature and other difficulties. I want to see those peoples’ journey and be a part of it,” he said.
After the long ten year wait, America is lucky to have this grateful man living here.
