Senate OKs bill to let 9/11 families sue Saudi Arabia

The Senate passed a bill that allows 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia over its alleged role in the terrorist attacks. This is a blow to President Obama who still poses the threat of vetoing the bill. Some politicians say this will give Americans some small measure of justice. However, the White House believes the bill will have major consequences, in which it could threaten national security and open the U.S. to lawsuits in reaction. Not a single Senator, democrat or republican, voted against the bill. They clearly are placing the interest of the families above any potential risk that the White House is citing.
