Omar: Droning Jihadists in Africa is Causing More Jihad
In a House panel hearing on Thursday, Rep. Ilhan Omar claimed that President Trump’s airstrikes of Somali jihadists is only causing more jihadist attacks.
“In Somalia, particularly in dealing with al-Shabaab, since President Trump has gotten elected, the number of drones have increased, but the number of attacks al-Shabaab has been able to carry out has also tripled. We also know the same to be true for Boko Haram…
“There is sort of a direct correlation between our droning, and the increase of [the jihadist] assaults. And their recruitment seems to increase because of some of the civilian casualties that take place,” Omar added.
