- Much against the wishes of President Obama, the US Congress Wednesday overwhelmingly pushed through a law to sue the families of the September 11 attacks allowing Saudi Arabia before.
The law was already passed by the Senate and the House of Representatives. Obama then had a veto over pronounced. Both chambers agreed Wednesday to veto road. It was the first time in his presidency that Obama has that happened. Also, many of his party members in Congress turned against Obama's veto.
Though immediately after the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and on the Pentagon turned up evidence that ally Saudi Arabia was involved in the financing of the attacks. The US government gave in July 28 secret pages free on the investigation into possible involvement of Saudi Arabia. The White House says that the information is no evidence of involvement of that country.
