Rep. Ilhan Omar, who once described the Muslim terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 as “some people did something,” was caught on camera laughing and giggling as her Democrat colleagues discussed U.S. casualties in Iraq.
“I’m very glad to say that I was part of the 132 and also the vote for Barbara Lee’s amendment, but I think that the point of that is that that is the same war that we’re dealing with today,” Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee said. “We never solved any problems with AUMF, we left four thousand plus, maybe even forty four hundred dead, and over sixty thousand who came back injured in some form and the war never ended.”
While Jackson Lee delivered her remarks Omar can be seen chatting with her fellow members of “The Squad” — giggling like a school girl. We’ve posted the video below.

“I recall the language in AUMF, it deals with hostilities in Iraq,” Lee continued. “It doesn’t deal with an incident or a dislike or someone in a car coming in from the airport. That is the danger of not acting and I do think with our leadership, meaning the leadership CPC, that will come together around specific answers.”
Omar went on to say that the conflict between the United States and Iran has given her post-traumatic stress syndrome.
“And I think every time I hear about — I hear of conversations around war, I find myself being stricken with PTSD. And I find peace knowing that I serve with great advocates for peace and people who have shown courage against war,” Omar said.
Rep. Ilhan Omar complained she’s “stricken with PTSD” because of recent events in the Middle East.
This is a disgrace and offensive to our nation’s veterans who really do have PTSD after putting their life on the line to keep America safe. pic.twitter.com/twhZDuUDu0

Rep. Jim Banks called Omar’s comments disgraceful and offensive.
“This is a disgrace and offense to our nation’s veterans who really do have PTSD after putting their life on the line to keep America safe,” he wrote on Twitter.
Folks, a sitting United States congresswoman admitted on national television that the death of a terrorist who slaughtered hundreds of our troops caused her to come down with a case of PTSD.
It’s time for Rep. Omar to decide whether she pledges allegiance to the United States or the Iranians.
