Former White House advisor Sebastian Gorka blasted Rep. Ilhan Omar for posting a photo in a CAIR T-Shirt the morning after the Bhagdadi raid announcement.
Why oh why would @IlhanMN post this picture THIS morning after the announcement that we killed Baghdadi, wearing a shirt from @CAIRNational, the un-indicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in US history??

Per Wikipedia, on November 2014 CAIR was designated a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates, due to alleged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said groups, such as CAIR, may appeal the designation if their “approach has changed”, as the law contains clauses allowing “organizations the availability to appeal through evidence and via the courts to have their names eliminated from the list.” Gargash rejected criticism of the designation, saying “The noise (by) some Western organizations over the UAE’s terrorism list originates in groups that are linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and many of them work on incitement and creating an environment of extremism.”
Townhall reports the news cycle has been inundated with coverage of ISIS leader al-Baghdadi’s killing by U.S. forces in a top-secret raid. Everyone in politics flocked to social media to acknowledge the terrorist’s death. Rep. Omar was a little slow to respond to the news, only doing so after many people called her out on Twitter.
But on Instagram, she did manage to post a photo right away of herself wearing a CAIR t-shirt. CAIR, the Council on Islamic Relations, supports terrorist groups like Hamas and continues to discourage Muslim-Americans from assisting the FBI in counter-terrorism efforts.
Sebastian Gorka, the host of “America First” on Salem Radio, brought up an important point about Omar’s post:
Gorka was referring to the Holy Land case, in which CAIR founder Omar Ahmad had been implicated.
