Schumer upends 9/11 Saudi suit bill at 11th hour

Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) was amended just before the Senate vote, adding a new section that would give the Justice and State Departments power to stay any court action indefinitely by telling the presiding judge that a diplomatic talk is in progress, writes Paul Sperry  in the New York Post.

‘“How do I feel about the Justice Department being given this power? Not good,” 9/11 widow Kristen Breitweiser said. “Their failure to bring their own Saudi indictment reveals how little they care about holding the Saudis accountable for either their funding or operational support of the 9/11 hijackers.‎”’
