The Bill to Allow 9-11 Victims to Sue Saudi Arabia Turns Out to Be a Chuck Schumer Led Scam

At the last minute, the bastard Schumer stuck an amendment to the bill which neutered it.

NyPo reports:
Last week’s unanimous passage of a Senate bill making it easier for 9/11 families to sue Saudi Arabia and other foreign terror sponsors was widely heralded as a major victory.

It’s more of a cruel hoax.

It turns out that just before the vote, Sen. Charles Schumer and other proponents of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act stuffed an amendment into the final draft allowing the attorney general and secretary of state to stop any litigation against the Saudis in its tracks.

Yes, JASTA would remove the statutory restrictions that have prevented 9/11 families from taking the Saudi kingdom to court. But Schumer helped craft an entirely new section to the original bill, giving the Justice and State departments the power to stay court action indefinitely. All they have to do is inform the judge hearing the case that the US government has engaged with ­Riyadh in diplomatic talks to resolve the issue.


  1. They've essentially made the suffering families the poker chips of international diplomacy.

  2. Schumer - rhymes with tumor. What an unspeakable turd. But his buddy in New York, Judge Daniels says that Iran did it. Oh, that fixes everything. And I agree with Brutus: "Oh, Mrs. 9/11 widow, would you like some salt with that wound?"

  3. "The fish stinks from the head down"

  4. What does it mean to be a "terror sponsor"? I mean are the Saudis actually giving money to them or is this one of those "if you buy drugs you're supporting terrorism" nonsense things?

  5. And that's because Israel would be next.

  6. Schmucker just wants to keep putting the "Saudi Arabia=bad" idea in the public's mind. Makes it easier to accept when the U.S. decides to overthrow the Kingdom. He knows full well that if the case ever actually finished, the Saudis would pull their investments out and ruin the US economy, not to mention that the Saudis could show U.S. and Israeli involvement in 9/11, which would be disastrous.
