Senate Passes 9/11 Bill

Senate Passes a bill that will let 9/11 victims' families sue Saudi Arabia.

It still has to pass the House and the President has to sign it.

This reminds me of what President Andrew Jackson said after the Supreme Court ruled it was unconstitutional to remove the Cherokees from their homeland in Georgia:

"John Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it."

If 9/11 victims' families sue Saudi Arabia who is going to enforce it?

What if Iraq and Afghanistan families sue the U.S. for drone attacks that kill innocent civilians?

Who is going to enforce it?

You are exactly right, this is just feel good symbolism from Congress.
