Muslim War Hero Sacrificed Himself for All Americans
Humayun Saqib Muazzam Khan (September 9, 1976 – June 8, 2004) was an American citizen and soldier. Born in the United Arab Emirates to Pakistani parents, he moved to the U.S. with his family as a young boy. He attended the University of Virginia, where he was a member of the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps.
On graduating in 2000, Khan was commissioned an officer in the United States Army and was deployed as a captain to Iraq during the Iraq War.
In 2004 he was killed in a suicide attack near Baqubah, Iraq, and was posthumously awarded a Purple Heart and Bronze Star.
What could be the final campaign ad from Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the home stretch of the campaign is the most devastating.
“In 2004, my son was stationed in Iraq,” Khan says at the beginning of the ad, folding his son’s dress uniform.
He saw a suicide bomber approaching his camp. My son moved forward to stop the bomber. When the bomb exploded, he saved everyone in his unit.
Only one American soldier died.
He was 27 years old, and he was a Muslim American, Khan continued, choking back tears. “I want to ask Mr. Trump, would my son have a place in your America?”

The ad features Khizr Khan – father of deceased Cpt. Humayun Khan, who was killed in Iraq – in his home, clutching the folded American flag he was given at his son’s funeral and staring quietly at a photo of his son.
