Skip to comments.Ilhan Omar 'Outraged' Over Soleimani Killing, About 9/11 Not So Much
Posted on 01/04/2020 3:57:29 PM PST by jazusamo
The traitor class has been particularly vocal ever since Qasem Soleimani was killed. The ever-winsome Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) tweeted Friday: 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. Wait, what? Soleimani was a foreign official? Isnt Ilhan Omar aware that Soleimani was no staid and stolid Iranian official sitting bored behind a desk somewhere in Tehran, but was responsible for the deaths of over 600 U.S. soldiers in Iraq? Yes, she does know, and clearly she doesnt care.
We know that she knows because she adds in the tweet quoted above: But of course you know that. She was addressing Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), responding to his tweet that said: According the the [sic] 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 hes finally dead?
As it turns out, Cruz was lowballing the actual figure of the U.S. personnel Soleimani had killed, but since Omar was responding to his tweet, she clearly knows that Soleimani wasnt some milquetoast bureaucrat caught up in the presidents rabid and unrestrained Islamophobia.
Nor does Omars insistence that she is only outraged because Trump acted without congressional authorization stand scrutiny. As Matt Margolis noted here at PJ Media, Alan Dershowitz, who knows a bit about constitutional law, explained that theres no doubt that Soleimani fit the description of combatant. He [was] a uniformed member of an enemy military who was actively planning to kill Americans; American soldiers and probably, as well, American civilians. The attack was consequently legally justified.

Why all the fuss just because some people did something?
Merry Christmas Ilhan!
Some president did something - nothing to get your burka in a twist over, Ilhan.
Some bombs blowup some stuff. See, easy peasy.
Throw this Incestuous Sister of Islam out The country
I also read that by being in Iraq, Qasim was in violation of a UN sanction.
Omar’s claim that Trump has no plan for the consequences was destroyed today when Trump tweeted that 52 targets have been identified should Iran not stand down.
Amen! The sooner the better.
Please, Minnesotans, can you do US all a favor and vote out this beotch, traitor!
Shouldn’t Omar be all about getting herself a beer - like Fauxcahontas?
The “congressional scrutiny” would have gone on for months, been used as extortion over impeachment witnesses, and then resulted in the Dems tipping off Iran with secret classified military information, followed by voting “No” on the plan in Congress.
What if Patton,Eisenhower and the others would have waited for Omar and Pelosi to vote on everything? “Tell Patton his route will have unfavorable ecological consequences. And tank smoke pollution sets up a large carbon footprint. He stays where he is.”
Plus ask Schiff and Nadler to keep a secret called the Normandy Invasion.
Sucks when somebody does something to you buds don’t it?
She needs to come down and eat her Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sandwich.

No American really gives a sh!t what you are “outraged” about Omar...
A foreign ‘official’. He was an Iranian terrorist, targeting Americans.
Why don’t we just start actively recruiting for new members of Congress from all enemy states?
Who is this we she is talking about?!
Our response - Some missiles did something.
