Cornyn Helps Lead Override Of Obama Veto

"As a result, our nation and its armed forces, State Department, intelligence officials and others may find themselves subject to lawsuits in foreign courts".

Other analysts warned that Saudi Arabia could, in response to the law, pull billions of dollars from the USA economy and persuade close allies in the Gulf Cooperation Council to scale back counterterrorism cooperation, investment, and U.S. access to important regional military bases. Saudi Arabia has long denied it backed the hijackers who flew planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania, killing some 3,000 people.

Fifteen of the 19 men who carried out the 2001 attacks were Saudi nationals. Riyadh denies any involvement in 9/11, but has warned it may sell up to $750 billion in bonds and other dollar-denominated assets so they can not be frozen by US courts.

The Saudi ministry expressed hope that the U.S. Congress would correct the legislation "to avoid the serious unintended consequences that may ensue". "That's because it describes a bill that doesn't exist" Cornyn said, adding "What the President ignores is that we're being sued by foreign nations already under the current state of the law".

McConnell suggested that he would be open to considering changes to the JASTA bill once Congress returns after the November elections.

Tennessee beats Georgia 34-31 with TD pass on final play
The 6-foot-3 Jennings leaped above everyone else in the scrum and rather easily brought the ball down as he fell to his back. After all, in his first game as the full-time starter, he led a 14-point comeback with three minutes to go on the road.

"Enacting JASTA into law, however, would neither protect Americans from terrorist attacks nor improve the effectiveness of our response to such attacks", Obama said.

And when Sweden's Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom strongly criticized Saudi Arabia's human rights record past year, the kingdom unleashed a fierce diplomatic salvo that jolted Stockholm's standing in the Arab world and threatened Swedish business interests in the Gulf.

"I'm afraid that this bill will have dire strategic implications" for the United States, Salman al-Ansari, head of the Saudi American Public Relation Affairs Committee, told AFP. "That's a hard suggestion to take seriously", Earnest said.

"Schumer, one of the bill's main sponsors, said he would look at any proposal but it had to be ". something that doesn't weaken the bill and limit the right of these families to get their day in court and justice" to receive his approval.
