Ignoring History, Omar Goes All in to Defend Iran
Pledge to Vote for Our Great President
Omar took to Twitter yesterday to parrot Iran's version of events leading up to and preceding the attack on a U.S. Navy RQ-4A Global Hawk drone.
Instead of listening to U.S. Central Command, leaders in both parties, or foreign dignitaries in the region like Saudi Arabia's defense minister, Omar appears to believe what Iranian state television is reporting.
The Daily Wire reports:
“To carry out such wars, American leaders have contrived pretexts to justify American aggression. That’s what Donald Trump’s administration—and especially its national security adviser, John Bolton—is doing now with Iran.”— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) June 20, 2019

Omar then falsely suggested that the U.S. was the "aggressor" in the situation with Iran, completely ignoring Iran's multiple attacks on oil tankers in the region in recent weeks and Iran's decision to shoot down a military drone this week.
Just as in Iraq, aggressors are using illegitimate pretexts to beat the drums of war.— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) June 20, 2019
Just as in Iraq, our media is taking these claims at face value.
Just as in Iraq, children will die, American lives will be lost, and the world will be less safe. #NoWarWithIran
Mr. President,— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) June 21, 2019
As a survivor of war, I want to tell you: going to war does not make you strong. It makes you weak.
So I urge you: be strong. Do not listen to the warmongers and war profiteers whispering in your ear.— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) June 21, 2019
Do not send our men and women into harm's way.
And I urge the American people to make your voice heard. Organize. Call your member of Congress.— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) June 21, 2019
Let all our leaders know that a war with Iran would be a catastrophe. #NoWarOnIran
Omar has a documented history of being sympathetic to Islamic terrorists. Here are just a few examples:
