Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) is leading the initiative.

The Pentagon has claimed the strike was targeted against suspected members of the al-Shabab East-African terrorist organization.

"I have been deeply engaged on this question throughout my time in Congress, not only focused on the legal merits of individual strikes, but on how our militarized counter-terrorism approach to al-Shabaab fits into our overall strategy and policy towards Somalia," Omar wrote in a letter to the White House on Friday. "In that respect, it is noteworthy that this week also saw reporting on the family members of Somali civilians killed by airstrikes conducted under the Trump Administration being unable to contact U.S. authorities or receive the condolence payments for which Congress has repeatedly appropriated funds."

The letter is co-signed by seven other Democratic representatives, all of them chairs of relevant committees and subcommittees, including Elliot Engel (D-NY), the Chair of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and Adam Smith (D-WA), the Chair of the House Armed Services With testimonial evidence, corroborating accounts and expert analysis of images and video from strike sites, satellite imagery, and weapons identification, Amnesty International has investigated nine airstrikes , and of those nine incidents found 21 civilians dead and 11 injured.

A new petition uploaded to the White House website is demanding an immediate Congressional investigation into Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar . Omar refused to condemn the terrorist attack by a self-described Antifa member, who tried to firebomb an ICE facility in Washington State. Omar also defended jihadists in her state who chose to join ISIS, saying they should get lighter punishments. There are also severe allegations concerning the question of whether Omar married her own brother.

"There were no U.S. forces accompanying Somali forces during this operation," she continued.

Defense Department spokesperson Cindi King said in a statement: "U.S. forces were conducting a remote advise-and-assist mission in support of designated Somali partner forces. U.S. forces are authorized to conduct strikes in support of combatant commander-designated partner forces under collective self-defense."

The Jan. 19 airstrike was the last airstrike on Somalia before this, under then-President Donald Trump and his U.S-centric plan that tried to remove officers from other countries.

Omar, whose family fled war-torn Somalia to a Kenyan refugee camp and then came to the United States as a child, has become one of the youngest people ever elected to Congress. As a Muslim refugee and part of the left progressive flank, she's frequently drawn the ire of her conservative opponents.

What does White bring to Arsenal?

  What does White bring to Arsenal? Arsenal are closing in on a move for Brighton defender Ben White, however, would £50m not be better spent elsewhere? asks Nick Wright.But for Mikel Arteta, like many coaches in the modern game, a central defender's remit is not simply to keep the ball out of his own net. It is to move it upfield as accurately and effectively as possible, and in doing so become the starting point of the team's attacks.

Ilhan Omar (D-MN), during a House panel hearing on Thursday, complained that U.S. President Donald Trump has dramatically intensified American airstrikes in her native Somalia that have killed hundreds of members of the al-Qaeda affiliate al-Shabaab. Describing herself as “an African on this Breitbart News was unable to verify Omar ’s assertion that the U.S. air campaign has led to an increase in terrorist attacks and recruitment. Citing Pentagon data, the Long War Journal reported in March that U.S. airstrikes against al-Shabaab, not attacks by the group as Omar indicated, are “on pace to

Ilhan Omar yet again for her Somali origins, saying the Minnesota Democrat is “telling us how to run our country.” Omar is a U.S. citizen — a requirement for serving in Congress — and was naturalized after coming to the country as a child refugee from Somalia . The comment was one of the president’s many jabs suggesting Omar is not an American. Going after her has become almost a staple of his campaign rallies, where he often focuses on her more than other progressive lawmakers critical of the president.

Omar's office referred Newsweek to her previous comments on the matter.

The White House and Defense Department didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Biden Defense Department has defended the move.

"There were no U.S. forces accompanying Somali forces during this operation," Defense Department spokesperson Cindi King said in a statement. "U.S. forces were conducting a remote advise-and-assist mission in support of designated Somali partner forces. U.S. forces are authorized to conduct strikes in support of combatant commander-designated partner forces under collective self-defense."

According to reports, the United States last month conducted an airstrike targeting al-Shabab in Somalia—the first such strike under Biden.

The Intercept reported that "The strike on Somalia occurred amid growing mobilization in the House of Representatives and Senate to reclaim oversight of the extensive war powers the White House has amassed since 9/11."

Ilhan Omar said Americans should be “more fearful of white men” when discussing the threat of “jihadist terrorism.” The Minnesota progressive was asked in a resurfaced interview with Al Jazeera from August 2018 about the rise of Islamophobia, citing the attacks that killed eight people on a “And so if fear was the driving force of policies to keep America safe — Americans safe inside of this country — we should be profiling, monitoring, and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men,” she continued.

Ilhan Omar (and her House colleague Rashida Tlaib who just yesterday announced that she gets a calming feeling from the Holocaust) must be held accountable for their actions. One week after Omar became the first Somali -American elected to a state legislature, an anonymous post appeared on a Somali community discussion site claiming the man to whom she was married at the time, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, was her brother. The Powerline blog followed up, asking whether Omar was married to two men, Elmi and Ahmed Hirsi, the father of her three children.

Congress has been reviewing what's going on.

Omar, a Democrat newcomer who is one of the first Muslims to serve in Congress and the first refuge, has been a target for the far-right that claims her Muslim origins threaten her commitment to America, but she won wide support for her reelection campaign last year.
