The Saudi 9/11 Bill Is A Gross Stunt That Empowers Conspiracy Theorists

The Saudi 9/11 Bill Is A Gross Stunt That Empowers Conspiracy Theorists

Congress is perpetuating lies and damaging U.S. foreign policy at a moment when that’s really, really unhelpful.

WASHINGTON ― Congress offered a rare show of unity Wednesday when Republicans and Democrats in both chambers overwhelmingly voted to override President Barack Obama’s veto of a bill that allows the families of Sept. 11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia.
Legislators can now claim to have heroically stood up for all Americans against foreigners and “Washington elites” by voting for a bill opposed by virtually the entire executive branch.
Don’t believe them. Instead, consider the real impact of what Congress decided to do this week, and why its members behaved as they did. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/saudi-911-bill_us_57ec2f1fe4b0c2407cdb98d2
