Ilhan Omar Responds To 9/11 Victim's Son Who Criticized Her

Rep.

Ilhan Omar defended her comments after she was directly criticized during a commemoration ceremony for the 9/11 terrorist attacks at Ground Zero held last week.

After an observer who lost his mother in the attacks took aim at a part of a speech she delivered in March, in which she said on September 11, 2001, "some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties." Omar told "Face the Nation" host Margaret Brennan that she "could not understand the weight of the pain that the victims of the families of 9/11 must feel," but emphasized that in the "aftermath" of 9/11 "many Americans found themselves now having their civil rights stripped from them."
