Breaking: 9/11 Victims’ Families Could Finally Get Justice Against Saudi Arabia

The victims and families of those who perished in the 9/11 terrorist attacks just got some great news in the fight against one of the major supporters of the attack, Saudi Arabia.

A bill known as the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act would allow the families to sue foreign governments that aid and abet terrorism.

The Obama administration has been pressuring Congress to squash the bill despite bipartisan support. Why? Because it has been opposed by the Saudi Arabian government, which has threatened to sell off billions in American assets should the bill be passed. And the one thing Obama does best is bow down to pressure from terrorists or those harboring terrorists.

Obama’s opposition to the bill led retired Army Lt. Col. Ralph Peters to ask “Where are the politicians with integrity, who will stand up for Americans and say, ‘Hey Saudi [Arabia], game over’?”

He also charged that the White House is putting “the happiness of the Saudi royal family above the survivors of 9/11.”

Now, after meeting with three widows from the 9/11 attack, senator Lindsey Graham is expected to lift a hold in the Senate on the legislation, quite possibly as early as Monday.

One widow, Lorie Van Auken, praised the move and the bill in general, saying “If Saudi Arabia funded those attacks that decimated lower Manhattan and killed 3,000 people it would mean justice finally for our loved ones that died that day.”

“It’s about making our nation safer,” said Mindy Kleinberg, whose husband Alan died in the 9/11 attacks.

“We want to use the lawsuit as a deterrent for future funders of terrorists,” she added.

Fox reports:

Fox News has learned senator Lindsey Graham is expected to lift a hold in the Senate on a key piece of legislation as early as Monday. Graham met with three widows from the 9/11 attack. The women talked about how difficult it has been getting answers over the past almost 15 years, and made the case if they could sue Saudi Arabia that might help them find out what led up to their husbands dying that day. Fifteen of the nineteen 9/11 hijackers were Saudi. Aides say Graham wants to assess the impact. After the meeting we spoke with the women about their message to Graham.

This was a big issue before President Obama’s visit to Saudi Arabia last week. There have been bipartisan calls to declassify the so-called 28 pages which still remain classified. It’s believed that the 9/11 hijackers had support from the government, wealthy people and charities in Saudi Arabia. As for the ability to sue a foreign government, the White House has expressed concern about the impact, if other countries take similar steps against the U.S.

The President, in the midst of a furor over 28 classified pages from the 9/11 Commission Report that some believe are protecting the Saudis, along with this legislation, released nine more Guantanamo Bay terrorists into the hands of the Saudi Arabian government.

  • Some try to malign Saudi Arabia by reciting that “15 of the 19” 9/11 hijackers were Saudi. They should know that the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, told U.S. interrogators that the initial plan was to have 20 hijackers from different nationalities, but late in the planning Osama bin Laden directed him to use as many Saudis as possible to give the attack a Saudi face.

  • What the hell. Am I really reading this! the way i see it, the US is thirsty for the Saudis money.The director of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) John Brennan has dismissed claims that the so-called "missing chapter" report into the September 11 attacks contains evidence of the involvement of the Saudi Arabia regime. Brennan also said there was no evidence senior Saudi officials had been implicated in the attacks in 2001, in which almost 3,000 people were killed.
