WATCH: Biden admin grilled for friendly overtures to Qatar, where Hamas leader lives

Fox News’ Peter Doocy confronted the White House Thursday over its friendly overtures to the nation of Qatar for helping to secure the release of American hostages in Gaza despite it being the home of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh.

“Talking about getting Americans out of Gaza, President Biden said, ‘I want to thank our partners in the region, particularly Qatar.’ The leader of Hamas lives in Qatar, so why is President Biden thanking them for anything?” Doocy asked.

“Oh, geez, Peter. Let’s take a step back here and look at this,” National Security Council Spokesman John Kirby responded, appearing to roll his eyes.

Kirby repeated that the U.S. was working with Qatar to help get American hostages out and humanitarian aid into Gaza, but did not address the Hamas leader being allowed to live in Qatar.
