KERRY COLLABORATING WITH SAUDI OFFICIAL TO “FIX” 9/11 LAWSUIT BILL

Following a meeting with Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters the two explored how to “fix” a recently-passed law that cleared the way for 9/11 survivors and family members to sue the kingdom for its alleged support of the hijackers.

Kerry and al-Jubeir both claimed JASTA puts at risk the entire concept of sovereign immunity, which limits the rights of individual people to pursue justice for the crimes of governments. “If this issue takes hold, we will have chaos in the international order, and this is something that no country in the world wants,” said al-Jubeir.

Kerry also repeated previous Obama administration claims that JASTA threatens those serving in the U.S. military. “We discussed ways to try to fix this in a way that respects and honors the needs and rights of victims of 9/11 but at the same time does not expose American troops and American partners and American individuals who may be involved in another country to the potential of a lawsuit for those activities,” said Kerry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Sovereign immunity" is what a country hides behind when it knows it has aided and abetted some horrible, immoral crimes against humanity, just as the Saudi military is doing now in Yemen, aided and abetted by the US government.

"Sovereign immunity" is a nasty legal construct, engineered to avoid true justice for those killed or maimed for life in a government military operation,so that rogue governments, like those of Israel, the current US government, or Saudi Arabian government, (the leadership of which collectively sneers at the concept of rule by law), never have to say they're sorry, or admit their guilt, as in the case of the Israeli government's assassination of peace activist Rachel Corrie; the US government's assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King; the indefinite Israeli detention of Palestinians with no charges filed against them; and the Saudi assassination of peace activist Sheikh Nimr in January of this year.
