Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) described the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, in a benign-sounding, uncharacteristically vague way during a recent speech to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

The Daily Caller's Amber Athey reports:

Omar delivered the keynote speech at a fundraiser for CAIR in late March and urged Muslim Americans to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable.” In one part of her speech that surfaced on Twitter this week, Omar described the 9/11 attacks in a peculiar way.

“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said. 

CAIR has notable ties to Islamic terrorist groups and was listed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) as an unindicted co-conspirator in funneling millions of dollars to Hamas.

Omar’s speech to CAIR in March sparked a pro-Israel protest, wherein hundreds of protesters descended upon the venue and attacked Omar for her comments that many have perceived to be anti-Semitic.

On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, four coordinated attacks by 19 al-Qaeda hijackers violently ended the lives of 2,977 people in the deadliest terrorist act in world history.
