Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said one thing that had everyone talking treason
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is oftentimes in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Usually she makes news for embarrassing mistakes or massive lies.
But this time she said the one thing that had everyone talking treason.
After Al Qaeda terrorists murdered 3,000 innocent Americans in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, America responded by attacking them in their safe haven in Afghanistan.
Only one member of Congress – radical Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee – opposed the authorization use of military force to invade Afghanistan.
But in an exchange on social media, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made it clear she believed the United States launching no military response was an option she would have supported.
I think that our decision to enter unlimited engagement in Afghanistan, particularly through the AUMF + Congress’ abdication of power + decision-making w/ passage of the AUMF, was a mistake.
Other options: targeting the network itself, limited engagement, non-intervention.

The Iraq War was a controversial decision.
Donald Trump won the Presidency in part on his opposition to foreign wars and nation building.
But even those Americans who believe the war in Afghanistan has gone on too long and would like to see it end supported exacting justice on the terrorists that planned the worst terror attack in the nation’s history.
Not Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Her anti-American views on the subject gave even left-wing members of the fake news media pause.
Congresswoman, could you please explain more about what you think the US should have done post-9/11 regarding Afghanistan? Should there not have been any NATO/US action versus AQ/Taliban in your view? A limited one? What would you have supported?
