REPORT: Video Shows Rep. Omar Saying Terrorism Caused by US ‘Involvement’ in Global ‘Affairs’

New footage surfaced on social media this week that showed Rep. Ilhan Omar blaming a 2013 Kenyan terror-attack on American ‘involvement’ in the region; saying “Usually most people want to not look internal and see what their actions that makes another react.”

“Omar made the comments during an obscure local television appearance just weeks after four armed al-Shabab jihadists stormed the Westgate mall in Nairobi in 2013, killing nearly 70 people and wounding 200,” reports Fox News.

“What you’re insinuating is what nobody wants to face. Nobody wants to face how the actions of the other people that are involved in the world have contributed to the rise of the radicalization and the rise of terrorist acts,” said Omar.

“Nobody wants to take accountability of how these are byproducts of the actions of our involvement in other people’s affairs,” she added.
