Just 24-hours after America recognized the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack, President Barack Hussein Obama announced his decision to side with terrorists!
The White House just announced that Obama will veto a 9/11 victims bill that would allow victims’ families to sue the Saudi Arabian government.
From The Washington Post:
President Obama is expected to veto a bill approved by Congress without objection that would allow families of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to sue the Saudi Arabia government, a White House spokesman said Monday.
The president has opposed the bill, called the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, over fears that foreigners could try to exploit it to sue the United States. Congress leaders have suggested they would try to override a presidential veto.
“It’s not hard to imagine other countries using this law as an excuse to haul U.S. diplomats, U.S. service members or even U.S. companies into courts all around the world,” Earnest said at his daily briefing, just hours before Obama was scheduled to meet with the congressional leaders of both parties at the White House.
“The president feels quite strongly about this,” Earnest said. “I do anticipate the president will veto the legislation when it is presented to him.”
The House passed the legislation by voice vote Friday, with leaders calling it a “moral imperative” to allow victims’ families to seek justice for the deaths of loved ones. Obama and other political leaders on Sunday marked the 15th anniversary of the attacks that brought down the World Trade Center towers and damaged the Pentagon. The Senate had approved the legislation in May.
The bill would allow courts to waive claims to foreign sovereign immunity in cases involving terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. Saudi Arabia has lobbied hard against the legislation, even threatening to start selling off U.S. assets if the measure passes.
Earnest said Obama was likely to explain his objections to congressional leaders. The president “has a pretty persuasive case to make,” the spokesman said.
It is outrageous that Obama decided to disrespect the victims of 9/11 by preventing them from suing the nation that funded the most horrific terrorist attack in American history?.
