(Liberty Bell) – Another day, another reminder that the left seems to want nothing more than for our enemies to flourish.
Ilhan Omar is lashing out at President Donald Trump after the president ordered the assassination of top Iranian military official who was leading terrorist groups in Iraq.
On Thursday, Iranian Major-General Qassem Soleimani, head of the Quds Force, and Iraqi militia commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis were killed by the strike by US forces. Al-Muhandis was leading the Iranian-linked Popular Mobilization Forces.
The Department of Defense promptly released a statement explaining that POTUS had ordered the strike because “General Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region.”
“General Soleimani and his Quds Force were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more,” the Pentagon continued. “He had orchestrated attacks on coalition bases in Iraq over the last several months – including the attack on December 27th – culminating in the death and wounding of additional American and Iraqi personnel. General Soleimani also approved the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad that took place this week.”
Omar, meanwhile, who obviously just had to say something since a top Islamist was killed, responded instead by saying that Trump had secretly carried out the strike to provide a “distraction” from the impending Senate impeachment trial.
Right. As if hell itself freezing over would distract the Democrat-Media complex from paying attention to impeachment.
Omar tweeted: “So what if Trump wants war, knows this leads to war and needs the distraction? Real question is, will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will.”

The Daily Wire has a few of Omar’s greatest hits when it comes to defending Islamic terrorists:
• Advocated for leniency and “compassion” in the sentencing of men who were convicted of trying to join ISIS
• Called for a senior Muslim Brotherhood member to be released from jail in Egypt
• Voted against a bill that allowed insurance companies to deny life insurance payouts to terrorist’s families
• Omar, Tlaib Planned To Meet With Terror-Promoting Groups, Including One That Promoted Neo-Nazi Screed, On ‘Palestine’ Trip
Meanwhile, here’s what Trump tweeted after the attack:

A Fox News reporter Lucas Tomlinson reported: “State Department says Iran responsible for killing 608 U.S. troops during Iraq War. Qasem Soleimani led all Iranian and Iranian-backed forces in those operations. 17% of U.S. troops killed in Iraq from 2003 to 2011 orchestrated by Iran, State Dept. says”.
