A social media greeting by the U.S. Embassy in Saudi Arabia raised a few eyebrows, and a few questions about who was in the video – and who was not.

The video was posted to mark the Islamic holy month of Ramadan and, according to Twitchy, journalist Ezra Levant reported that it featured Mike Hankey, Consul General at the U.S. Consulate in Dhahran.

Though there were certainly many who were grateful for the gesture.
