A recently surfaced video shows Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) in late March downplaying the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) is calling her out for her “unbelievable” remark.
At the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on March 23, Omar explained how the group was founded after the 9/11 attacks “because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
Ilhan Omar mentions 9/11 and does not consider it a terrorist attack on the USA by terrorists, instead she refers to it as “Some people did something”, then she goes on to justify the establishment of a terrorist organization (CAIR) on US soil. pic.twitter.com/ixP3BJfqxS— Imam Mohamad Tawhidi (@Imamofpeace) April 9, 2019
“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something,’” Crenshaw tweeted in response on Tuesday.
He concluded by calling it “unbelievable.”
