Obama's Veto Of 9/11 Bill Won't Stop Congress From Overriding It
The president's fears about international retribution won't stop Congress from trying to pass this bill.By Matt Picht | September 23, 2016
For what it's worth, President Obama has officially vetoed a bill that could land Saudi Arabia in court over the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The bill removes a foreign state's immunity to prosecution if it's involved in terrorism on U.S. soil. The White House claims the bill could do serious damage to U.S.-Saudi relations and encourage lawsuits against the U.S. from around the world.
