      Just as shocking as that flippant remark: the 30,000 suicides of U.S. service members in post 9/11 wars and 40,000 vets suffering mental anguish and homelessness.

        "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." That sounds like what I was thinking. Thanks.

          CAIR was actually founded in the mid 90s.

            1994, in fact. That was Omar's quote. She's obviously not aware of the facts.

              Before being elected to office Omar had served as a member on CAIR's Advisory Board, something that has been removed from her bio and the Wiki page on her That they were around 7 years prior to 9/11 is something that a member of the organization's Advisory Board would know. Perhaps she was gaslighting? And while the WaPo was falling all over themselves seeking to put her statements in context, Politifact actually called her statement false.
