Uphold veto on 9/11 lawsuits: Our view Uphold veto on 9/11 lawsuits: Our view
The urge to find justice for the families of 9/11 victims is so strong that it’s hard to stand in the way of anything that seems to help them. That emotional appeal persuaded Congress, which is normally bitterly divided, to pass a measure that its bipartisan supporters said would ease the way for those families to sue Saudi Arabia for its alleged complicity in the attacks.
