Clay: From the very beginning this bill, with 9 original Democrat sponsors and 9 original Republican sponsors, was bipartisan stupidity. Saudi Arabia, like every other country on the planet, has sovereign immunity and is not subject to the laws of the US. The only think the US government could have done is to pay and judgments using US tax dollars then refuse to pay the treasury note debt owned by Saudi Arabia. If they tried that they would likely never get another country to by US Treasury Notes. It would additionally open the door to a very dangerous precedent since the US is guilty of the worst terrorist attack this planet has ever seen in the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. After the US sets the precedent, what is to prevent Japan from passing a similar law or any other country.
