Sep 28 - US Senate Override of Veto of 9/11 Lawsuit Bill 'Embarrassing' - White House

The US Senate vote to override President Barack Obama's veto of a bill allowing families of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks’ victims to sue Saudi Arabia is "embarrassing," White House spokesperson Josh Earnest told reporters on board Air Force One on Wednesday.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Senate voted 97-1 to override Obama's veto of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) bill. The US House of Representatives could vote to override the veto as earlier as Wednesday afternoon.

The Obama administration opposed the act arguing it could harm US relationships abroad and make Americans vulnerable to foreign lawsuits.

JASTA is strongly supported by the families of 9/11 victims who have a long-standing lawsuit against Saudi Arabia for allegedly supporting the hijackers involved in the attacks. The lawsuit was dismissed in 2015 on account of Saudi claims to sovereign immunity.

That's straight up bullsh*t. This act wasn't even passed and we haven't had any issues up until this point. Nothing but fear mongering to stop people from questioning the US bowing down to foreign entities.

Why are people acting like what Congress did was wrong or bad? We should be able to convict the people responsible for those atrocities and other countries should do the same. Am I missing something?

Props on Congress bi*ch slapping the TRAITOR OBAMA

O yeah I feel the need to explain this situation to the clueless masses. This situation is very much like the OJ Simpson, Nicole Brown, Ron Goldman murder case. Everyone knows OJ basically did the murder while still escaping the prosecution, however the Goldman family was able to successfully civilly sue OJ as being responsible for the the murders AKA he did it. Now about 911... 15 of the 19 hijackers were citizens of Saudi Arabia... pretty fishy huh. America however attacks Iraq and pins the blame on the patsy Saddam. Everyone with any knowledge of the events knows that Saudi Arabia is the real force behind 911 (with rogue traitor elements of the US government). The victims of 911 families (like the Goldman family in the OJ example) know this fact and want to civilly sue Saudi Arabia's government. Obama tries to block the 911 families from suing trying to save face for the Saudis and protect their money. Obama claims this isn't the case and he just doesn't want to open the US to being sued as well. In truth Obama is just trying to protect the crime partner

It sounds all nice and sweet but yeah....you're missing the potential flood gates that's going to open regarding folks like Pakistan and Afghanistan suing the US for all those drone strikes or potentially the economic and military intelligence issues that go hand in hand with that. Saudi Arabia owns a sh*t load of a*sets in the US as well...they could potentially say fu*k it and liquidate so their a*sets won't get caught up in litigation etc...huge economic impact. They own about $117 billion of US debt alone.

its silly because the country Saudi Arabia as a whole was not behind the attacks

there was obviously people with power and influence from saudi arabia involved, but it wasnt as if the whole governement and country of saudi arabia was behind it. There were obviously people from a bunch of countries that profited from 9/11 including the US and Saudi Arabia

people always bringing up the fact that most of the hijackers were saudi, but then again why wouldnt they be? Al Qaeda included saudis and was lead by a Saudi named Osama Bin Laden

This is not about pursuing criminal charges but civil suits for money. Saudi Arabia aint gonna pay sh*t to no Americans based off this sh*t. The people might win a judgement but who gonna force them to pay? We gonna go to war if they refuse to pay? No we not. Its only gonna be a moral victory and produce nothing but tension between the 2 countries. Plus if we can sue other countries for an attack on us whats stopping other countries whom we have bombed from suing us? Obama knows the destruction we cause globally and he was trying to keep the lid on that. These Senators know aint nobody gonna get paid from this.....they just want to be on the record as supporting this so they can use it to get re-elected by the naive people who think this is a win for justice.

I still don't see how congress is wrong. Yes, those countries should sue the US for our war crimes. Eventually our fake a*s economy and foreign policy have to be exposed.

Barrack trying to save his friends a*ses cuz if this sh*t becomes a real news story, then all these idiots who still believe the official 9-11 story may finally wake the fu*k up.

This could set a dangerous precedent and U.S. could find its way on the other end in the future.

Obama is a Saudi boot licker, you can't be a more obvious traitor than this.
Us about to be hit with lawsuits from all over the world

US interests, politics, military and special contractors have k*lled millions and thats just while I've been alive

Yall still cool with this if BLM protestors sue the govt for the police using tear gas?

It drives me crazy that so many people are so misguided, and that politicans use their ignorance against them for personal gain instead of national interests and security

Nobody is gonna get paid, and no one is going to war over it, then it's no problem .

It's just to allow people to point the finger at the culprits and officially say "you did this". And people have a right to know the truth and not to be led into wars by lies.

So you're cool with the US continuing to k*ll millions? With the military industrial complex spiraling out of control and contributing the largest percentage to our national debt? You don't think that if another country sued us, that our government wouldn't just settle the case anyway? When were transferring billions of dollars to foreign governments, you don't think that compensating the families of those we ruined is fair to them? And consequently fair to us?

Or does the US know that 9/11 was planned and there's more to the story than the public knows which is why they don't want to allow lawsuits? Funny how 99% of bipartisan congress passed this veto but yet we're supposed to be scared because Obama said it would hurt foreign relations? No us f*ghting unjust wars for private agendas is what hurts foreign relations. Yea it may give us a black eye, but it's about time we a*sumed responsibility for our actions and start taking another direction.

By the way, I'm 100% in support of having victims of police violence sue the police departments and the cities for wrongful deaths. It's actually quite common and cities like Chicago have paid out big.

Thats the point tho.....the finger has already been pointed and we went to war for that in Iraq and Afghanistan. Saudi Arabia didnt get attacked at all. So if the Congressman who all voted for this feel like Saudi Arabia is to blame and can be sued then why didnt they f*ght them? sh*t dont add up.

I agree with it "not adding up" I truly don't understand why Congress would do this.

They pointed the finger at the people they wanted a reason to attack . They can just say "Bush did it", since Bush already put the bill in place that says his regime cant be investigated for war crimes.

I just want this to move forward. The fact that this is not the number one news story is

so conversely,the iraqi government should be able to sue the U.S for the false invasion?

Or maybe even the vietnamese should sue also.or what about the coups they caused in chile,Nicaragua,etc

Do we even need to step info africa?

Obama is trying to block the bill to protect us from being bankrupted man
