Ilhan Omar Attacked U.S. Soldiers Involved in ‘Black Hawk Down’ In Somalia

1

Ilhan Omar said that living in America is like an “everyday assault” and that she feels demonized, threatened and vilified.

And those are some hard words from a woman that comes from Somalia!

Yeap the same Somalia where brave American soldiers suffered 26 years ago!

And for what?

So that an immigrant from Somalia can humiliate them while serving in Congress!

The United States Army was the villain in the “Black Hawk Down” incident in Somalia, U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., wrote in a 2017 Twitter post.

She was responding to a tweet that falsely described the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu as the worst terrorist attack in Somali history. The original tweet noted that 19 American soldiers were killed and 73 American soldiers were wounded.

“In his selective memory, [the writer] forgets to also mention the thousands of Somalis killed by the American forces that day! #NotTodaySatan,” Omar wrote before she was elected for Congress!

Sara Carter reports:

Omar’s attack on U.S. soldiers involved in the “Black Hawk Down” incident appears to have gone unnoticed until now.

Her tweet saying that “thousands of Somalis [were] killed by the American forces” exaggerated the Somali death toll and omitted important context.

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 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.

Somali casualty counts vary dramatically, in part due to the nature of the battle. But few credible estimates place the figure anywhere near the “thousands” Omar claimed were killed.

Only 133 Somali militiamen died in the fighting with U.S. Rangers and Delta Force soldiers, Capt. Haad, a representative of the Somali National Alliance (SNA) said in a 2001 interview with Author Mark Bowden. He estimated 500 Somali deaths in his book Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War, considered the definitive account of the Battle of Mogadishu. Others put the Somali death toll closer to 1,000. A 2000 Rand Corporation report estimated 300 noncombatants were killed.

Omar’s family fled the Somali civil war, initially taking refuge in Kenya before making it to the United States in 1995.

This is just one of the many cases where she attacked our country!

Her comments for 9/11 are still fresh!

Ilhan Omar refused to call 9/11 a terrorist attack!

She said:

“…some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

We have a woman that hates our country and is part of the Congress!
