Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is making waves once again with a series of tweets calling the entire war on terror a disaster.
As reported by magavoter.com
Once again, Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has landed herself in the middle of controversy, after making another outlandish remark.
Daily Caller reported that Ocasio-Cortez seemed to declare the entire war on terror to have been “disastrous + wrong” in a series of tweets Monday night. She was not only speaking about the Iraq War but the war in Afghanistan against Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida, the group behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks, as well as their enablers and protectors, the Taliban.
From Daily Wire
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) made radical statements Monday night on Twitter, suggesting that the United States should not have authorized the use of force against those who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks — the deadliest terrorist attack in world history.
“It is disturbing that Rep. Omar continues to perpetuate hurtful anti-Semitic stereotypes that misrepresent our Jewish community. Additionally, questioning support for the U.S.-Israel relationship is unacceptable,” Democrat Rep. Juan Vargas (CA) tweeted. “Israel has and remains a stalwart ally of the United States because of our countries’ shared interests and values. I condemn her remarks and believe she should apologize for her offensive comments.”
Ocasio-Cortez responded in a dishonest manner, suggesting that Vargas was calling out Omar’s foreign policy stances, not her anti-Semitism.
I‘m curious if Rep. Vargas will further explain his stance here that it’s unacceptable to even *question* US foreign policy.
Plenty of Dem members have asserted that discussion + debate on this issue is fair and merited. Is this stance a departure from that? https://t.co/2tcelsxFCU

Ocasio-Cortez continued with another tweet that contained some false information:
“I remember a time when it was ‘unacceptable’ to question the Iraq War. All of Congress was wrong, including both GOP & Dem Party and led my generation into a disastrous + wrong war that virtually all would come to regret, except for the one member who stood up: Barbara Lee.”
Ocasio-Cortez plainly stated that “all of Congress was wrong” was to vote in favor of the Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) and that Barbara Lee was correct for not voting for it.
