GOP congressman Gary Palmer blasted Ilhan Omar’s “anti-Semitic … bigotry” by highlighting a Jewish CIA officer and former Green Beret who was killed on a peacekeeping mission in her native Somalia.
“Another name is worth recognition and remembrance, especially among Somali refugees: Lawrence Freedman,” Palmer wrote in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal. “Thousands of Somali refugees who now live in Ms. Omar’s district had their freedom and security paid for with the blood of American soldiers — 22 of them, including Freedman.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Palmer cited Freedman as an example because he was Jewish-American and because, he wrote, Omar is guilty of “anti-Semitic statements” and “bigotry.” Freedman was the first American to die in the U.S.-led intervention in the Somali civil war, which included the Battle of Mogadishu.
Freedman, 51, went by the nickname ” SuperJew” among his friends in the Green Berets. Both his death and life were shrouded in secrecy. The Pentagon didn’t even disclose what his mission was in Somalia in 1992 when his vehicle hit a tank mine, killing him and injuring the other three men in the vehicle.

“Thus far the only consequence for her bigotry has been an anodyne resolution against hate speech.”
