Secretary of State Anthony Blinken spoke with the House Foreign Affairs Committee yesterday during a hearing and was grilled by member of “The Squad” and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
In a tweet that shared a clip of their exchange, Omar said, “We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity.”
Omar then claimed, “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.”
U.S. House Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) slammed Omar in a tweet for lumping all of them together in one sentence and equating the “unthinkable atrocities.”
Greene exclaimed, “@IlhanMN our American troops are NOT guilty of committing ‘unthinkable atrocities’ and are NOTHING like the Taliban!”
“You clearly hate our country and have no respect for our freedoms. You’re a supporter of terrorists. America deserves justice for you,” Greene added.

This is not the first time that Greene has gone after Omar for being critical American authorities.
In April, we reported:
It was reported on Friday that U.S. House Rep and member of “The Squad” Ilhan Omar (D-MN) plans to reintroduce the National Police Misuse of Force Investigation Board Act next week, which would create a new federal agency to independently investigate police killings, in-custody deaths and major use of force incidents.
Omar said that it would “be a proactive board that does the work on behalf of our country, in trying to make sure that these agents of the law are taking their oath seriously and that the work they’re doing is work that helps communities feel safe.”
When she introduced the bill last December in the U.S. House of Representatives, it received about a half-dozen Democratic co-sponsors before a referral to committee.
The language of the bill specifies that the board’s findings would be admissible in court and could be presented to juries in the case of criminal charges against officers, so if the agency had existed during the trial of Derek Chauvin, jurors could have considered the federal agency’s investigation in their decision.
U.S. House Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) tagged Omar in a post and said that she “wants police investigated by a federally funded board appointed by the President.”
Greene suggested that instead of that, Omar should investigated for “her involvement with BLM and riots in MN that caused $1-2 billion in damage to 1,500+ properties.”
“Omar shared the MFF bail bond link that let rioters out of jail,” Greene added.
