A lawsuit to hold Saudi Arabia responsible for whatever role they might have had with the attack on 9/11 faces the lobbying of Obama against Americans finding out just what actually happened.
This morning Mike Smerconish talked to Senator Bob Graham who is outraged about what’s happening.
Here’s the segment:
This sounds pretty fishy, and you don’t have to be a moron 9/11 truther to think so. Here’s more from CNN:
Saudi Arabia is warning it will sell off billions in American assets if the U.S. Congress passes a bipartisan bill that would allow victims of 9/11 and other terrorist attacks to sue foreign governments.
Saudi foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir issued the warning to U.S. lawmakers last month during a visit to Washington, two senior State Department officials told CNN. A source with knowledge of the Saudis’ thinking said investments would be put in jeopardy if this bill passes, so they are trying to protect themselves from risk.
The story was first reported Saturday by The New York Times.
The Obama administration has, in turn, applied heavy pressure on Congress to block the bill. Top officials from the State Department and Pentagon warned Senate Armed Services Committee staffers last month that the bill could bring economic risks to the U.S.
The Saudis did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Asked if President Barack Obama would veto the legislation if passed by Congress, a senior administration official told CNN that “rather than entertain a hypothetical, we believe there needs to be more careful consideration of the potential unintended consequences of its enactment before proceeding with legislation.”
“We would welcome opportunities to engage with the Congress on that discussion,” the official added.
This is pathetic. Obama won’t even say whether he’ll veto it or not. This makes me even more curious about just what evidence of Saudi participation there is. One of the 9/11 family members says that Ted Cruz is one of the co-signers of the bill. So if you want answers, we need to get the CruzNado over the top….
