Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is facing yet another controversy after a 2017 tweet about U.S. military forces surfaced on Monday.
In a tweet posted on October 15, 2017, Omar seemingly sided against the U.S. military involved in the famous “Black Hawk Down” battle in Somalia, also known as the Battle of Mogadishu. In total, 19 U.S. armed forces were killed and 73 were wounded.
Omar responded to a tweet that claimed the worst terrorist attack in Somalian history was the Battle of Mogadishu.
“In his selective memory, he forgets to also mention the thousands of Somalis killed by the American forces that day!” Omar tweeted.
She even added the hashtag #NotTodaySatan.
Omar was brutalized on Twitter for siding with America’s enemies.
"She watches Black Hawk Down and roots for the other side," Arthur Schwartz tweeted.
Omar’s tweet was first uncovered by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which reported the Democrat left out important context in her claim that U.S. forces killed “thousands” of Somalis.
“It completely missed the point of the U.S. involvement in Somalia, retired Chief Warrant Officer Mike Durant, who was shot down in Mogadishu on Oct. 3, 1993 and held captive by the militia loyal to Somali warlord Gen. Mohammed Farah Aidid, told the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT),” the report stated.
The report added: “The U.S. military was in Somalia as part of a humanitarian mission to save starving Somalis and protect food and aid from being stolen by warring factions.”
Once again, Omar has some explaining to do. But if history is any indicator, she will not be apologizing. This is exactly who she is.
