The U.S. Senate on Tuesday passed a bill allowing families of the victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks to sue Saudi Arabia.

The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act was passed unanimously by a voice vote, but the White House has threatened to veto it. Additionally, Saudi Arabia has said it might sell $750 billion in U.S. assets in response if the JASTA becomes law.

The debate over this legislation comes at a time when prominent former lawmakers are calling on the White House to declassify the final 28 pages of the 9/11 Commission report, which is expected to implicate Saudi Arabia in the attacks. Read more.

  1. If Obama dare vetoes this bill, it will show the world that he despises White Americans with a hatred that has not been seen in many years. He is more concerned with the “feelings ” of the Saudi Arabians than the lives of white Americans.

  2. …Saudi Arabia has said it might sell $750 billion in U.S. assets in response if the JASTA becomes law.
    Saudi Arabia is not our friend. They were not when they sent us into a tailspin with the 1973 oil embargo, they were not when they financed madrasas that preach America-hatred worldwide, and they are not when they now threaten us with economic blackmail.
