President Obama vetoed a bill that allowed families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia

President Obama vetoed a bill today that would allow the families of victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks to sue Saudi Arabia for any potential involvement, reports Politico

Obama had several objections to the bill, chiefly that if U.S. officials would be sued in a similar fashion in foreign courts. 

The bill was passed unanimously through both chambers of Congress, so backers of the Bill expect that the veto will be quickly overridden. 

The veto will first head back to the Senate for consideration. 

New York Sen. Chuck Schumer helped write the bill. 

Some online are pointing out the supposed hypocrisy of the bill. 

What do you think?
