Thomas More Law Center Let’s put America and Americans first.
Pass the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) and declassify the 28 pages of the 9/11 Commission’s Final Report that deal with the role of senior Saudi officials.
The Obama Administration has joined with Saudi Arabia to intimidate Congress from passing JASTA, which would allow families of the 9/11 victims to hold Saudi Arabia responsible for the 9/11 attacks. (JASTA Full Text) Generally, the legislation, with bipartisan support, for the first time would allow Americans to sue foreign governments if they are found to be responsible for terror attacks on U. S. soil. To veto the bill would be to abandon the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks. In addition to the legislation, an effort is being mounted to declassify 28 pages of the 2002 congressional report on the 9/11 attacks. Assisting the Obama Administration’s effort to defeat the Bill, the Saudi government has unleashed an army of high-priced Washington Lobby and PR firms to cajole Congress from passing the bill. Saudi Arabia also threatens to sell off over $750 Billion in American assets to cause economic turmoil. Let the fight begin.
