Omar defends her controversial 9/11 comments
Ilhan Omar defended previous comments she made about the September 11
terror attacks in her first Sunday show sit-down on “Face the
Nation.” Host Margaret Brennan talked about how the son of a victim
of 9/11 wore a T-shirt to a memorial service last week inscribed with
Omar’s controversial phrasing “some people did something.” “Do
you understand why people found that offensive?” Brennan asked.
Omar, a Minnesota Democrat, didn’t answer yes or no. “So 9/11 was
an attack on all Americans. It was an attack on all of us. And I
could certainly not understand the weight of the pain that the
victims of the families of 9/11 must feel, but I think it is really
important for us that we are not forgetting the aftermath of what
happened after 9/11,” Omar said.
