As predicted, the Senate voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday to override U.S. President Barack Obama's veto of a bill that would give 9/11 families the right to sue Saudi Arabia for sponsoring terrorism.
As you know, Saudi Arabia donated nearly $500 million to Obama's 2008 presidential campaign. He maintains close ties to Saudi Royals.
As the most anti-American president in political history, his decision to veto the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorists Act came as no surprise to many.
The bill allows families to go after Saudi billionaires who helped finance the terrorists who brought down the twin towers in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001.
Obama vetoed the bill last week even though it received the full backing of the two chambers of Congress.
The Senate voted to override Obama's veto by a final vote of 97-1, with only Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) voting against it.
The House will not oppose the Senate's override, meaning the bill will become law -- against Obama's wishes.
"Both parties agree that the families of the 9/11 victims deserve justice," said Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).
The override tarnishes Obama's legacy of zero overrides in his 2 terms as president.
Obama will not become a member of an exclusive club of former presidents who have zero veto overrides.
John F. Kennedy is among the former presidents who do not have a single veto override in their presidency.
