WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has vetoed a bill that would have allowed the families of 9/11 victims to sue the government of Saudi Arabia.

The move sets Obama up for a possible first veto override by Congress. Both chambers passed the bill by voice vote. The House sent Obama the bill just before the 15th anniversary of the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, 2001.

Obama says the bill would “upset longstanding international principles regarding sovereign immunity.”

The bill would have given 9/11 families the right to sue in U.S. court for any role that elements of the Saudi government may have played in the attacks.

Fifteen of the 19 men who carried out the attacks were Saudi nationals.

    You wanna know for whom BHO is working – for the the US citizens or for the muslim world, the muslim Agenda to destroy the western world , islamize the world….?Its simple – check his actions….The consequences for the US citizens : Your home is on fire – what you should do is obvious – the question is are : you doing something or are you remaining seated in your soft couches, staring frightened at the snake in front of you like the rabbit ?

    My guess is that BHO & pals wont let go the power strings – they will remain in control and the USA will end up as a totalitarian system .
    The muslim world has placed a trojan horse into the heart of the USA / the main pillar of the free, democratic, christian world – this trojan horse has been given 8 years by the US citizens to tear down their once great Nation of the USA. He – BHO – has done a great Job, fullfilled the expectations, orders of the muslim world…
