core - Bill Allowing 9/11 Victims to Sue Saudi Arabia Becomes Law
This is an ultra important law for non-whites, who may use the same lawfare against America / West for the centuries-long crimes against their nations and people. See list of white crimes against Asians below. This doesn’t even include all the war crimes by whites against other non-whites.
The House of Representatives voted 348-76 against the veto, just hours after the Senate rejected it 97-1, meaning the “Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act” will become law.
Obama had argued that the bill, known as JASTA, could expose U.S. companies, troops and officials to lawsuits, and alienate important allies at a time of global unrest.
Major U.S. corporations including General Electric Co. and Dow Chemical Co. also opposed it, as did the European Union and other U.S. allies.
Secretary of Defense Ash Carter urged lawmakers to sustain the veto, and in an unusual move, CIA Director John Brennan issued a statement before Wednesday’s votes saying the bill had “grave implications” for national security.

Update: Congress has buyer’s remorse
Top congressional leaders from each party expressed buyer’s remorse Thursday about a controversial new law that was enacted over President Barack Obama’s objections that allows 9/11 families to sue Saudi Arabia.
The President called the vote Wednesday “political” and his spokesman ripped the move as the “single most embarrassing thing” Congress has done in decades.
Echoing concerns raised by the White House that the measure could open the US to similar lawsuits from people in other countries, House Speaker Paul Ryan said the law needs to be changed to ensure that US troops are protected.
Translation: It’s got nothing to do with their troops and everything with protecting their war criminal leaders, ceos, etc.
As usual, these morons blame others. In this case, they blame the guy who told them this would be a bad idea.
But even as they admitted they agreed with some of the White House’s concerns, GOP leaders quickly blamed the President for “dropping the ball” for failing to engage with Congress on the legislation before it passed.
Congress suddenly has buyer’s remorse for overriding Obama’s veto - CNNPolitics.com:
Looks like the bill was a smashing success and attracted it’s first customer.
After the US Congress passed the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), which overrides the principle of sovereign immunity to allow families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia, an Iraqi group has requested parliament to prepare a lawsuit seeking compensation from the US for the invasion of Iraq.
The “Arab Project in Iraq” lobby group “sees their opportunity to ask for compensation from the United States over violations by the US forces following the US invasion that saw the toppling of late President Saddam Hussein in 2003,” the Al-Arabiya news channel reported on Saturday.
“It urged for a full-fledged investigation over the killing of civilians targets, loss of properties and individuals who suffered torture and other mistreatment on the hand of US forces.”
The Iraqi group is the first to take advantage of the precedent set by JASTA in overturning the principle of sovereign immunity.
President Obama had attempted to veto the legislation, but his veto was overturned by the Senate on Wednesday. By passing JASTA and allowing 9/11 families to sue Saudi Arabia, the Senate has also made the US vulnerable to legal action seeking compensation for its foreign policy activities across the world.
The day after the Senate vote, former Republican Senator Larry Pressler expressed fear that as a veteran of the Vietnam War, he could now face legal action.
All my Asians, I encourage you to write to your governments and spread the good news.
I wonder how John “I hate the gooks” McCain feels about all this.
