Obama Supports Saudi Royals Immunity in 9/11 Lawsuit

In another one of his trademark "I have no idea what I'm doing." moves, the Obama administration - shortly after his last visit to Saudi Arabia, and just prior to another scheduled meeting with Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah during his upcoming Middle East visit, has petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to protect Saudi Arabia and four of its princes from being held accountable for their alleged role in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the United States!

Through its solicitor general, Elena Kagan, the Obama administration has asked that the Saudis be held immune under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, or FSIA, even though there is ample U.S. evidence of complicity by the Saudi government and the named princes in support of al-Qaida's attack. This action would deny American survivors of those 3,000+ killed in the attacks on the Twin Towers the right to seek court remedies for their losses.

Is there any sign of justice in this action? Is there any indication that Obama has the best interests of Americans in any of his executive actions thus far? Is it any wonder that Iran and North Korea are testing Obama's ability to lead, and that the test results continue to show his failure of those tests? "Strongly worded letter to follow" is not much a deterrent to mentally unbalanced foreign leaders. Unfortunately, Obama's failure to take immediate and strong action will also be the failure of the United States of America.

I could be wrong about this, but only if the sun fails to raise in the morning.
