Duckworth slams Collins's comments: 'I left parts of my body in Iraq fighting terrorists' [View all]

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), a former Army lieutenant colonel who lost both her legs in Iraq, ripped Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) Thursday for comments he made the day before that Democrats are "in love with terrorists."

"I'm not going to dignify that with a response. I left parts of my body in Iraq fighting terrorists. I don't need to justify myself to anyone," Duckworth said on "CNN Right Now."

Collins made the remark on Fox Business's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" Wednesday, in response to Democratic criticism of Trump's handling of the killing of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad.

"They mourn Soleimani more than they mourn our Gold Star families, who are the ones who suffered under Soleimani. That's a problem," Collins added.

"I'm disgusted. I would never, ever use Gold Star families, military men and women or their families as any pawn in any political game. Let me tell you something: This issue is about America's national security. It is not a partisan political issue," Duckworth said.
