The House approved legislation Friday by voice vote that would allow families of 9/11 victims to sue the government of Saudi Arabia, CBS News has confirmed.
The Senate passed the measure back in May, , which was sponsored by Sens. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Chuck Schumer, D-New York.
President Obama, of course,fiercely opposes it and has threatened to veto the legislation. His reasoning? That if we start suing other countries, gee, they might sue us!
As if the United States was in the habit of financing attacks by our countrymen that kill 3,000 people.
But this president’s attitude symbolizes something worth looking at.
