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.

She needs to go back and get busy popping out replacements.
Clinton made up for it by importing them by the tens of thousdands into the US so they could elect your Muslim ass.
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.
WTF is going on? Why is she even in our country? And now in congress. Good Lord!
I wish they had.
Would it be traitorous to say that I believe a Somali warlord rather than a US Congresswoman? /sarcasm off
Well that was a start.....
If not for anger and hatred of America the left would have nothing to offer.
That's all? Sounds like we need to go back and finish he job.
I’m not sure why we were there, but thousands of dead Somalis .... eh, that’s a shame.
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
Every time you play with a turd, you get crap on your fingers. If we didn’t go to Somalia, we wouldn’t have khat chewing skinnies in Congress now... and filling up Minnesota
She’s a Congress Critter so she can attack the US from the inside with the protection of Congress
Thousands? Well, it was a good start.
She needs to carry her vile, moslem azz back there...and stay there.
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.
