Kellyanne Conway cites 'Bowling Green massacre'. It never happened.


Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, referenced a 'Bowling Green massacre' during an interview with MSNBC's Chris Matthews. 

Conway may have been referring to two Iraqi refugees, who lived in Bowling Green, KY at the time, sentenced to federal prison in 2011 for attempting to send weapons and money to al-Qaeda in Iraq, Washington Post reported. She was defending President Trump's recent travel ban through executive order.

"I bet it's brand new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre. It didn't get covered," Conway told MSNBC.

The Bowling Green Massacre wasn't covered because it never occurred. The six-month ban Obama supposedly implemented on Iraqi refugees also never happened. 

However, at the time Obama did order that the about 57,000 Iraqi refugees that had been resettled in America be revetted, which slowed down the process causing a major drop in refugee arrivals from Iraq. Some were still being approved giving the impression they weren't being allowed into America at all.

The ACLU, American Civil Liberties Union wasted no time to troll Conway by creating a "Bowling Green Massacre Victims Fund." 

"We all still carry the vivid memories of what horrors occurred at Bowling Green," the site reads, "but some still relive those moments everyday as they work to rebuild a community torn apart."

Conway tweeted this article posted in 2013 about the two al-Qaeda terrorists in Kentucky.
