Omar claimed US killed 'thousands of Somalis' in 1993 'Black Hawk Down' battle

A Muslim congresswoman repeatedly condemned for anti-Semitic comments is drawing new criticism for attacking the U.S. military over its actions a quarter-century ago in her home country of Somalia.

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar wrote in a 2017 tweet that American soldiers killed 'thousands' of Somalis in the first Battle of Mogadishu, the 1993 event chronicled in the book and movie 'Black Hawk Down.'

The highest published Somali death toll is the UN's estimate of 500. Many were civilians engaged in a militia battle to kill or capture a handful of U.S. soldiers after two attack helicopters were shot down in Somalia's capital city.

Mohammed Farah Aidid, the Somali warlord who was America's target in 1993, claimed 315 were killed and another 812 wounded. The International Committee of the Red Cross later called that estimate 'plausible.'

Omar's spokesman did not respond on Tuesday to requests for any information she had about higher death-toll estimates.

We did kill a lot but they were bad guys. They were also probably terrorists.

In this case maybe the right people did something.

This nefarious muslim clown is not here to uphold the constitution. This is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, the first of many more to come to lay the groundwork for jihad in America.

Would it be traitorous to say that I believe a Somali warlord rather than a US Congresswoman? /sarcasm off

If not for anger and hatred of America the left would have nothing to offer.

The highest published Somali death toll is the UN's estimate of 500.

That's all? Sounds like we need to go back and finish he job.

We should have never gone to that place. It was a Soviet client State before the wall fell. We have no critical American interest there. We should have let them starve, it wasn’t worth a single American dollar or life

Had Les Aspin and Bill Clinton not disapproved the deployment of armored vehicles, the body count would have been much higher. Time to send Omar back to her skinny relatives.

Ask her how many of her family participated in dragging our Rangers through the streets of Mogadishu. She was born there.
