Victims of State Sponsored Terror Deserve Justice, Sponsors of Terror Need to be Held Accountable

SOA Watch

WASHINGTON - Today, the U.S. Senate voted to override the President's veto of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terror Act ["JASTA"] and the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to also vote to overwrite the veto shortly. JASTA allows 9/11 families to sue Saudi Arabia over allegations Saudi officials were linked to the 9/11 attacks. The bill makes no judgment about Saudi Arabia's responsibility for the attacks. It just removes Saudi Arabia's immunity from lawsuit over support for terrorist attacks on U.S. soil.
