Bill allowing 9/11 victims to sue Saudi heads to Obama

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi join members of the House of Representatives on the steps of the US Capitol for a ceremony marking the anniversary of the September 11th attacksThe US House of Representatives passed legislation Friday that would allow relatives of victims of the 9/11 attacks to sue Saudi Arabia for compensation — a move the White House has threatened to veto. The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act was approved in the House by unanimous voice vote some four months after its Senate passage — and only two days before the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks. The government of Saudi Arabia, a US ally but also the home nation to 15 of the 19 September 11 hijackers, has worked hard to see the bill defeated.
