Just when you thought Ilhan Omar couldn’t sink any lower in her hatred of America, she outdoes herself yet again.
The far-left Democrat Rep. said on Friday that she was “outraged” at President Donald Trump’s decision to kill Qassem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.
This is the same Soleimani directly responsible for the deaths of over 500 American soliders in Iraq, and the maiming of thousands more.
The New York Times reported on Thursday that Soleimani and top Iraqi paramilitary commander Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, who headed the Iranian-linked Popular Mobilization Forces, were killed in an airstrike on Thursday at Baghdad International Airport when when an American MQ-9 Reaper drone fired missiles on a convoy the two terrorists were riding in.
Omar initially responded to the news by writing on Twitter: “So what if Trump wants war, knows this leads to war and needs the distraction? Real question is, will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will.”
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded to Omar, “According the the Obama Department of Defense, Qasem Soleimani was a terrorist directly responsible for the murder of over 500 US service men & women. Why are congressional Dems outraged that he’s finally dead? See more: [link to news article]”
Omar responded by doubling down on her outrageous position:
Omar responded, “We are outraged the president would assassinate a foreign official, possibly setting off another war without Congressional authorization and has zero plan to deal with the consequences. But of course you know that.”
Not only are her comments in defense of the world’s #1 terror regime disgraceful, but Omar also lied. President Trump has full authority to call strikes in Iraq.
The AUMF was passed in 2002. The declaration allows the president to use the armed forces as “necessary and appropriate” to “defend U.S. national security against the continuing threat posed by Iraq.”
Thanks to President Trump’s boldness and commitment to protecting American citizens, Al Quds Leader Qasim Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis leader are both dead.
The United States killed General Qassim Soleimani, a top commander of Iran’s al-Quds Force, in an airstrike at Baghdad’s International Airport. The strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces. Seven people were reportedly killed in the airstrike.
Ilhan Omar, who fundraises for CAIR, a front group for Hamas, is outraged that her terrorist buddies are dead..
Omar’s treason is just her latest outrage.
She married her own brother to defraud U.S. immigration, and just this week a House Ethics Complaint was opened on Omar, alleging the Muslim Rep. committed the following crimes in violation of both federal law and Minnesota state law: perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, and federal student loan fraud.
She she might want to sit this one out.
