US Senate Overrides Obama's Veto on Bill Allowing 9/11 Victims to Sue Saudi Arabia

Bahrain Mirror: The United States Senate voted 97-1 to override US President Barack Obama's veto of the bill that would allow Americans to potentially sue Saudi Arabia for 9/11 today on Wednesday (September 28, 2016). This is the first veto override during the Obama presidency.

Obama vetoed the bill last week, explaining that the "Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act" (JASTA) would erode the doctrine of sovereign immunity and expose the US to lawsuits around the world.

The House is expected hold a veto override vote later on Wednesday.
