A man speaking at a ceremony memorializing the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on Wednesday criticized Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) for her comments in March that “some people did something” on 9/11.
Nic Haros spoke at the site of the twin towers in New York City to honor his mom and friends lost in the attacks on the World Trade Center. He pointed at his black t-shirt, which read “some people did something,” and called out Omar.

“‘Some people did something,’ said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota to support and justify the creation of CAIR,” Haros said. “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?”
Haros then said members of Al Qaeda had killed thousands of people and caused billions of dollars in economic damage.
“I was attacked. Your relatives and friends were attacked,” he said, pointing at the audience. “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? We are here today, congresswoman, to tell you and the Squad just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please.”
Soon after, Omar tweeted about the terror attack.
“September 11th was an attack on all of us,” she wrote. “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.”

Omar stirred controversy in March while speaking at a fundraiser for the Council on American Islamic Relations. While praising American Muslim responses to the attacks, she referred to the events as a time when “some people did something.”
