What was the Bowling Green Massacre that President Trump's advisor Kellyann Conway said had not been covered by the media?

There is no recorded event known as the Bowling Green Massacre, and it appears that Kellyann Conway mentioned it in the mistaken belief that it took place. She said President Obama had banned Iraqi refugees from entering the US after two had been radicalised and taken part in the Bowling Green Massacre. Two Iraqis were convicted of attempting to send money to Al-Qaeda but there was no massacre. Conway was widely ridiculed for mentioning the massacre, particularly as she appeared to claim it had been covered up by the media.
