recognize that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties. has more now from washington. representative omar made the comments at a luncheon hosted by the council on american islamic relations and in her twenty minute speech the message was that u.s. muslims have the right to stand up against discrimination and if you listen to her full sentence in which that nine eleven comment is embedded she said that cair was founded after founded after nine eleven because they recognize that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties so the president by choosing to quote just four words of the sentence obviously leaves out the bigger context of this being a statement concerning the civil rights of u.s.
