Ilhan Omar was doing some damage control after some embarrassing statements about 9/11 and Al Queda. Do you believe her?
In a TV interview, Ilhan Omar was asked to reflect upon 9/11.
Here is what she had to say.
DailyMail has a longer clip than the one we have to show you, in which she gave some background on her family’s experience of that day:
I mean, I was 18 years old when that happened. I was in a classroom in college and I remember rushing home after being dismissed and getting home and seeing my father in complete horror as he sat in front of that TV. And I remember just feeling like the world was ending. The events of 9/11 were life-changing, life-altering for all of us. I think one of the most horrific terrorist attacks that we have lived through.
My feeling around it is one of complete horror. None of us are ever going to forget that day and the trauma that we will always have to live with.
Here is her 9/11 tweet:
September 11th was an attack on all of us.
We will never forget the thousands of Americans who lost their lives in the largest terror attack on U.S. soil.
I will continue to fight to make sure we care for the first responders and families who lost loved ones. #NeverForget

That’s her official statement. Do you buy it?
Let’s compare that to things she’s said before. For example, her defense against criticisms like the one she was hammered with at the 9/11 Memorial — EPIC: Patriot Who Lost Mom On 9/11 Fish-Slaps Ilhan Omar At Pentagon Memorial (Video) — comes straight out of the old Clinton Playbook. Deny, deny, deny.
“Omar was critiqued before for the comments referenced by Haros Jr., which she said was related to the New Zealand terror attacks where a white nationalist killed 50 people.” — DailyMail
The infamous quote, taken from a CAIR speaking event where the banner behind her read “4th Annual Banquet Advance Justice Empowering Valley Muslims”, is at the very beginning of this clip.
She said: ‘CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized some people did something and all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
She also fails to explain how a group that was founded in June of 1994, nearly a decade before ‘some people did something’ as she so callously described it. How CAIR could possibly have risen in a response to bad things done by Americans to Muslims remains a mystery.
Or maybe she’s just a stone-cold propagandist willing to do or say whatever she thinks will accomplish her particular goal at the time.
One more thing. She mentioned she was 18 and in college in 9/11, right?
Listen to this clip again and ask yourself a question:

Does the little giggle she makes when she talks about how her professor says ‘Al Quaeda’ and ‘Hezbollah’ square with what she just told us about how ‘horrific’ and ‘life-changing’ the events of 9/11 are?
Sorry, Ilhan, we think your 9/11 condolences are as empty as your wedding vows.
