Does visiting Iraq or Iran invalidate an existing B1/B2 visa?

Visiting one of the VWP invalidating countries does not invalidate a visa. That’s the whole point, since the VWP invalidation compels the VWP national to obtain a visa, and if it also invalidated the visa there would be no way for such a VWP national to visit the US.

You may get a little more questioning if the border guard knows about the visit, and you certainly shouldn’t hide your visit if asked, but the visa is still perfectly valid.

You’ll be fine. They might ask you questions if you get taken to secondary, but that usually only happens if the computer flags a passenger. Source: personal experience.
