This is What they Were Afraid Of — Iraqis Use ‘Sue the Saudis’ 9/11 Bill to Sue US for 2003 Invasion:
(Matt Agorist) The warmongers in the US government have just had their fears realized as Iraq plans to use the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), aka Sue the Saudis Bill, to demand compensation for the US invasion of Iraq.
Last month, the U.S. House of Representatives, following the lead of the Senate, passed a bill allowing Americans to sue Saudi Arabia over 9/11. When the bill made it to the President’s desk, however, Obama quickly showed his loyalty to Saudi Arabia and vetoed it. However, that was only the beginning of the rollercoaster.
Days after his despicable veto, the Senate stepped up and overwhelmingly voted to override it.
The reason the for the veto was obvious as this bill would, in theory, open up a venue and allow lawsuits against the U.S. for alleged sponsorship of terrorist activities in their own countries – a Pandora’s Box that President Obama, and the CIA most certainly do not want to open with the world watching. However, it appears, for now, that Pandora’s Box is open.
My Commentary: It’s about time… Too bad most Americans didn’t disavow the criminal government alleging to represent them, and hence, deserve a major share in the blame, now. Enjoy paying twice, tax-slaves: once for the wars of aggression and crimes against humanity your government committed, and a second time, when you are held accountable for them. Complacency is complicity. Always has been, and always will be. Perhaps, you’ll pay a third time, when some other country decides to invade the US for sponsoring terrorism. And, maybe, you’ll even pay a fourth time, on Judgment Day… Who knows what the future holds?
