The Saudis must be held accountable for their role in 9/11

Saudi Arabia has long acted as a state sponsor of terror.

Congress must approve the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, which would allow victims to sue those responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, including members and employees of the government of Saudi Arabia who assisted them.

A threatened veto by President Barack Obama must be overridden despite his claim that the legislation would potentially harm national security and our "partnership" with Saudi Arabia.

As the recently released 28 pages of the Joint Congressional Investigation showed, Saudi Arabia has acted as a state sponsor of terrorism and should be treated as such.
