Regarding President Obama’s Veto of JASTA
September 23, 2016
Today, President Obama vetoed Justice.
We are truly dismayed that President Obama has decided to protect terrorists and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by vetoing The Justice Against Terrorism Act, (JASTA).
Our murdered husbands and the other 3,000 dead of 9/11 deserve better from this President.
President Barack Obama was a community activist, a Constitutional law professor, and a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
President Obama now stands alone in protecting the terrorists who killed 3,000 innocent souls on American soil.
With his veto, President Obama turns a blind eye to the heinous acts of terrorists that wreck havoc and cause bloodshed around the globe.
We firmly believe that Congress will overwhelmingly override President Obama’s veto against JASTA.
This American Congress understands the importance of accountability and justice – because without these two tenets of civilized society, only chaos and terror can ensue.
We look forward to Congress – in a truly unanimous and bi-partisan manner – votingJASTA into law and protecting Americans against the terrorists who spread hate, violence, and murder around the globe.
We believe that Congress truly speaks for the will of the 9/11 families and the American public in sending the very clear message to the world – EVERY terrorist who harms or kills Americans on American soil will be held accountable and brought to justice, no matter who they are or what country they come from.
A vote for JASTA is a vote for Justice.
A vote for JASTA is a vote against the terrorists.
A vote for JASTA is a vote for America.
Please keep us safe from terrorist attacks.
Vote for America. Vote for Justice. Vote for JASTA.
Please vote to override President Obama’s veto of JASTA.
