9/11 Memorial speaker, Nicholas Haros Jr., a man who lost his mother during the attacks, criticized Rep. Ilhan Omar’s controversial characterization of the terror attacks.
“‘Some people did something,’ said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota. To support and justify the creation of CAIR. Today I am here to respond to you exactly who did what to whom….Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done. There is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion?”
“On that day, 19 Islamic terrorists, members of Al Qaeda killed over 3,000 people and caused billions in dollars of economic damage. Is that clear? But as to whom? I was attacked, your relatives and friends were attacked. Our constitutional freedoms were attacked. And our nation’s founding on Judeo-Christian principles were attacked. That’s what some people did. Got that now?” he continued. “We are here today, congresswoman, to tell you and The Squad just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please. American patriotism — in your position demand it.”
This is a video of the Ilhan Omar speech Haro was referring to.
Ilhan Omar Tweeted that 9/11 “was an attack on all of us.”
September 11th was an attack on all of us.
We will never forget the thousands of Americans who lost their lives in the largest terror attack on U.S. soil.
I will continue to fight to make sure we care for the first responders and families who lost loved ones. #NeverForget

One Twitter user, Brandon Tatum, called for Omar to apologize.
We see right through you like a piece of glass.
You owe us all an apology for that some people did something comment
