President Obama: Congress’ veto of 9/11 lawsuits bill is ‘a mistake’
The House and Senate voted to override President Obama’s veto of JASTA, the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, which will allow 9/11 victims and families to sue Saudi Arabia for the 2001 terror attacks. Obama criticized the lawmakers, saying the bill’s passage could expose U.S. troops and diplomats to legal retaliation overseas. NBC’s Andrea Mitchell reports for TODAY from the White House.
