Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar attacked U.S. soldiers who died fighting in the ‘black hawk down’ operation.
“In his selective memory, he forgets to also mention the thousands of Somalis killed by the American forces that day! #NotTodaySatan,” Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar wrote in a tweet on October 16, 2017.

“In his selective memory, he forgets to also mention the thousands of Somalis killed by the American forces that day! #NotTodaySatan,” Omar wrote in a tweet in October 2017, uncovered Monday by John Rossomando of the Investigative Project on Terrorism.
Omar was responding to another tweet about the Battle of Mogadishu, a 1993 humanitarian operation by the U.S. military that sought to save starving Somalis by preventing food and aid from being captured by enemy combatants. The battle ultimately took the lives of 19 American soldiers and wounded 73 others, and it became the subject of the famous Hollywood movie “Black Hawk Down.”
Omar’s claim that “thousands of Somalis” were killed by American forces during that battle is wildly false by most expert’s estimations. More
Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar also forgets that by conservative estimates, about 100,000 lives were saved from death by starvation as a result of international assistance that were protected by U.S. troops.
Needless to say, Ilan Omar is not only profoundly ignorant beyond belief but she could care less about facts, reality, or truth, she lives in her own deranged fantasy world, spreading propaganda lies, incendiary dogma as a political gaslighter.
The MSM literally does not vet anyone on the left, they don’t look at their tweets, nor their yearbooks, nor look into any of their past histories.
That is why you end up regretting a previous action by some candidate on the left after they are already in office because the MSM does not care to even take a peek at their past.
