President Obama is threatening to veto a bill that will allow the families of 9-11 victims to sue the government of Saudia Arabia. He is willing to abandon American families in favor of Saudia Arabia.
The cowardly President issued his willingness to veto the legislation through his Press Secretary Josh Earnest, “It’s difficult to imagine the president signing this legislation.” He went onto warn about “unintended consequences,” saying the bill would “change longstanding international law regarding sovereign immunity and the President continues to harbor serious concerns this legislation would make the U.S. vulnerable in other court systems around the world.”
However, Judge Napolitano countered this fallacious claim explaining there is already precedence for this legislation. Watch the Judge’s explanation:
Fortunately, the empty chair President’s threats were ignored by a bipartisan vote in the Senate led by Republican John Cornyn and Democrat Chuck Schumer. Judge Napolitano explains the 28 pages that were classified by President George W. Bush from the 9-11 report will reveal that high ranking Saudi officials used the levers of government or their own finances to aid, assist, and maybe even pay for the 9-11 attacks.
Schumer fired back at Obama’s weak administration, “”I think we easily get the two-thirds override if the president should veto.”
It’s absolutely outrageous the President would threaten to veto this legislation particularly in light of overwhelming bipartisanship. When was the last time you’ve heard of such legislation being passed in the Senate by a voice vote?
Share this if you believe the 9-11 victims deserve justice.
