Black Hawk Down Veteran EVISCERATES Omar for Her “Disgusting” Tweet

In a fiery op-ed, Sergeant Major Kyle E. Lamb, a US military veteran who was present for the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu, condemned Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar for recently-surfaced remarks she made in 2017, appearing to call US forces “Satan.”

Omar’s remarks from 2017 were highly critical of US forces deployed within the area, and accused them of killing “thousands of Somalis” during the day-long battle which lead to the Hollywood film “Black Hawk Down.”

Clearly upset by the congresswoman’s remarks, Lamb explained the situation from his point of view, and said he “cannot comprehend her attitude towards those of us who fought to protect her country and countrymen” during the conflict.

“The simple truth is that Omar enjoys the fruits of American combat deaths, yet she can’t even bring herself to acknowledge the ultimate sacrifice that was made on her behalf, either as a Somali or an American,” wrote Lamb.

The former military pilot rebuked Omar for “smearing American servicemen because we answered the call of our nation to address the violent barbarism of hers.”

“I don’t understand why [Omar] uses those freedoms to slur the men and women of the U.S. military who made her security and liberty a reality,” said Lamb, who also noted, “I am thankful Omar and her family and countless others were able to escape.”

A petition to impeach Ilhan Omar has collected nearly 10,000 signatures.

From The Federalist:

Earlier this week, a 2017 tweet from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) surfaced in which she attacked the men who helped defend from starvation and civil war the country she abandoned in the early 1990s. In her tweet, Omar blasted “American forces” for killing “thousands of Somalis” during the Battle of Mogadishu in October 1993. “#NotTodaySatan,” Omar wrote.

I take special exception to Omar’s disgusting comments because I served in the Battle of Mogadishu, which was later portrayed in the movie “Black Hawk Down.” If you aren’t familiar with the real story behind “Black Hawk Down,” let me set the scene for you.

Nineteen incredible men gave their lives defending her country while serving ours. They deserve to be lauded for their service, not attacked for it.

I am thankful Omar and her family and countless others were able to escape to neighboring Kenya while we fought to protect those left behind, but I simply cannot comprehend her attitude towards those of us who fought to protect her country and countrymen from warlords who plunged Somalia only further into violence and starvation. I am glad that Omar can now enjoy the very freedoms we fought to protect, like the freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion affirmed in the U.S. Constitution, but I don’t understand why she uses those freedoms to slur the men and women of the U.S. military who made her security and liberty a reality.

The simple truth is that Omar enjoys the fruits of American combat deaths, yet she can’t even bring herself to acknowledge the ultimate sacrifice that was made on her behalf, either as a Somali or an American. Her clan didn’t stand a chance against Aidid and Habar Gidirs, so I don’t blame her for leaving. But I do blame her for attacking those of us who had zero personal interest or investment in her nation for doing our jobs on behalf of our country. And I blame her for smearing American servicemen because we answered the call of our nation to address the violent barbarism of hers.

Unlike Omar, I’m not a politician. I don’t have power or influence. I don’t have a vote in Congress or the ability to direct America’s foreign policy. I’m just one of the men who strapped it on as a member of Task Force Ranger and went into harm’s way to help bring peace and security to her and her people. And let me tell you, she missed a helluva fight.
