Editor,

Michael Oberg should verify whether “the old kink in his neck” is caused by shaking his head while reading Desmond Tuck’s letters or by nodding the same object on his upper body in response to the U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) pronouncements and positions. Omar has a lot of defenders in her corner. 

But Oberg is the first one elevating her to an enviable status of “an upstanding citizen.” Really, Oberg? After she claimed that on the Sept. 11, 2011, “somebody did something?” And after she has pleaded, in 2016, for leniency in defense of Abdirahman Yasin Daud while he was accused of trying to join ISIS? 

During the court proceeding Daud stated: “I was not going there to pass out medical kits or food. I was going strictly to fight and kill on behalf of the Islamic State.” Oberg, of course, is entitled to his opinion regarding Rep. Omar’s viewpoints. Hopefully, it is not, as he likes referring to, the opinion of “majority of Americans.”
