Saudi Arabia is known to have warned of severe economic consequences after threatening to dump US$750 billion of investment in US if the bill allowing 9/11 victims and relatives to sue the Saudi Arabian government and individuals linked to the 9/11 attacks.

This came to light soon after the recent  declassification of the 28 pages report on the 9/11 attacks 15th annivessary of the horrendous 9/11 attacks on US soil in which planes were crashed into the world trade centre twin towers, near the Pentagon and fields in Pennsylvannia by terrorists.

A total of approximately 3000 people died and this includes 265 on board the four planes, used by the 19 terrorist hijackers who crashed some of the planes into the twin towers of the World Trade Center. 15 of the hijackers are reportedly from Saudi Arabia.

Surviving victims and relatives were looking forward to finally being able to sue Saudi Arabia for its involvement in the worst terrorist attacks on US soil in history and were awaiting the passing of a bill to that effect.

However the US president Barrack Obama has crashed that hope, by vetoing  the bill, citing that the bill threatened US interests.

The bill would potentially threaten  sovreignity, US citizens and interests  on foreign soil as they become targets for a backlash or reprisals if it became law hence President Obama’s veto. By Sibusiso Ngwenya
