9/11 Families File Complaint with Department of Justice

On March 29, 2016, the 9/11 Families & Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism organization filed a letter with the Department of Justice to request the DOJ commence an immediate national security investigation into potential widespread criminal violations of the Foreign Regisration Act (“FARA”), by foreign agents retained to conduct what we view as an unprecedented foreign influence campaign on behalf of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The apparent goal of the massive Saudi-funded foreign agent offensive is to delude Congress into passing unprincipled and unwarranted amendments to the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrrorism Act (“JASTA”).

In service of this dangerous effort to influence Congress into passing legislative text promoted by a foreign power, the Kingdom and its foreign agents have targeted U.S. veterans nationwide through a campaign that deeply mischaracterizes JASTA, and even more importantly has been conducted in ways that conceal the fact that the influence and propaganda onslaught has been and continues to be orchestrated and financed by the Saudi government and foreign agents working on its behalf.  Read full complaint here: http://passjasta.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/FARA-COMPLAINT-20170329.pdf

URGENT NEWS RE: JASTA & THE U.S. MILITARY

VETERANS BEWARE! The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is trying to use you as pawns in a political game.  Under the guise of an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. and promises of meeting high-powered lawmakers, Saudi-hired lobbyists are recruiting veterans and misleading them into opposing their best interests.  Saudi Arabia is paying for these trips to overturn valued U.S. legislation that could finally hold it and other suspected sponsors of terrorism, accountable through the U.S. civil justice system.

When JASTA became law last year, the Act’s supporters, myself included made it abundantly clear that JASTA would in no way put our troops in danger.  Don’t be duped into believing Saudi lobbyists’ myths that JASTA represents a radical departure in our historical approach to sovereign immunity and that, if other countries reciprocate, our own honorable service members risk being sued.  JASTA simply allows U.S. citizens to sue foreign governments – not individuals – for supporting designated terrorist groups to commit terrorist attacks on U.S. soil.

JASTA was reviewed at great length and underwent numerous revisions that addressed many of the outdated concerns JASTA opponents continue to raise, before both chambers of Congress unanimously reached a shared conclusion that the law, as it stands lies in the best interest of our country and the countless victims of 9/11.

Our veterans, perhaps more than anyone, know what it means to stand for what’s right and protect our country and its values.  JASTA aims to do just that, by stopping terrorism,  in its tracks.  Please don’t let Saudi Arabia trick you into losing sight of that goal.  Stand with us against funders of terrorism.Terry Strada, National Chair for 9/11 Families & Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism

EXCLUSIVE: Saudi Cash Is Sending Veterans On LUXURY Trips To Washington To Oppose 9/11 Law

Response on Behalf of 9/11 Families and Victims to Letter in Opposition to JASTA by Certain Former Officials

The letter issued this evening by certain opponents of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) raises the same alarmist and inaccurate arguments that many of the same people have raised previously, and that Senators and Representatives carefully considered and rejected in passing JASTA unanimously earlier this year.  Those arguments were unanimously rejected because they deeply and demonstrably mischaracterize existing law and JASTA’s scope and effect, and are entirely subjective (as the authors themselves concede).

We remain dismayed that the Obama Administration, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its protectors have spent much of this year trying to deceive Congress and the public into believing that JASTA works dramatic changes to the law, when in fact it is narrowly tailored and largely restores the law that has existed for decades.  Nor was Congress persuaded by the purported threats to the U.S.-Saudi relationship, because Congress understood that any relationship requires accountability and honesty, which is all JASTA requires.  Just as Congress dismissed the Administration’s fearmongering in passing JASTA the first time, we are confident that it will do so again if it becomes necessary to override an Obama veto.

The letter’s authors’ claim that JASTA would “completely undercut sovereign immunity protections upon which the United States and all sovereign nations have relied for centuries” plainly misrepresents the current state of U.S. law and international norms concerning sovereign immunity protections.  In fact, for nearly 70 years, the United States has adhered to the restrictive theory of sovereign immunity, under which foreign states are regularly subject to the jurisdiction of another country’s courts for harm they cause in that country.  This restrictive theory of immunity is the norm in international practice.

Congress codified this approach in 1976 through the enactment of the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA), which sets forth a range of exceptions to sovereign immunity under which foreign states are subject to suit in the United States.  This includes an exception to immunity for tort claims involving injuries occurring in the United States.   For nearly four decades following the FSIA’s enactment, that exception was understood to apply to claims that a foreign state provided support from abroad for a terrorist attack on U.S. soil, as reflected by the decisions allowing claims against Chile to proceed for its role in facilitating from abroad the assassination Orlando Letelier in Washington, D.C., and against China for abetting from overseas the murder of dissident Henry Liu in California.

In fact, in 2004 the Departments of Justice and State of the Bush Administration, in which several of the letters’ authors served, filed a formal amicus brief in the federal appeals court in the District of Columbia asserting that this existing immunity exception for tort claims would apply “in cases of terrorism on U.S. territory, such as the September 11th attacks.”  JASTA merely restores that precise interpretation of our immunity statute.

As recently as 2011, the federal appeals court in New York reaffirmed that view, ruling that claims of a 9/11 victim against Afghanistan – a country that has never been designated as a State Sponsor of Terrorism – could proceed.   In other words, claims are proceeding under current law, and have been for four years, against an ally of the United States for the events of 9/11.

No floodgate of retaliatory litigation against the United States followed from these longstanding rulings, and if the risk were at all real, the Bush Administration most obviously would not have advocated in 2004 that foreign governments do not enjoy sovereign immunity under existing law for terrorist attacks on U.S. soil, citing 9/11 specifically.

The letter’s authors do not even attempt to grapple with these points.

Their claim that JASTA’s passage would potentially subject our troops, diplomats and government personnel to suits in foreign courts also rests on demonstrably untrue characterizations of JASTA’s scope and effect.  In reality, JASTA has absolutely nothing to do with the immunities and protections that individual diplomats and government officials and employees enjoy from suit.  Instead, as the Supreme Court unanimously confirmed in Youseff v. Samantar, the immunities available to individual foreign officials flow from the common law, and JASTA does nothing to disturb those protections at all.  It concerns only the immunities of foreign governments.

The authors’ claim about potential suits against diplomats is utterly unsupportable.  As the authors surely know, or should, the immunities of diplomats and consular officials are governed by the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Immunity, a treaty to which 190 nations are signatories and obligated to comply.  A foreign government could not authorize a suit against a U.S. diplomat in retaliation to JASTA without violating its treaty obligations to nearly 200 other nations.  It simply can’t happen.

The authors also are wrong when they claim that JASTA would encourage the trial bar “to extract settlements from foreign nations based on the possible disclosure of otherwise secret diplomatic and national security communications.  This is simply not true.  As the Supreme Court affirmed recently in a unanimous decision, “settled doctrines of privilege” and principles of international comity protect foreign states from inappropriate incursions into their governmental documents in U.S. litigation proceedings.  Consistent with those protections and the legislative history of the FSIA itself, the courts have long recognized that “sensitive governmental documents of a foreign state” are protected from disclosure by governmental privilege rules.  EM Ltd. v. Republic of Argentina, 695 F.3d 201, 210 (2d Cir. 2012) (quoting H.R. Rep. No. 94-1487, at 23) (“The [FSIA] does not attempt to deal with questions of discovery. Existing law appears to be adequate in this area. . . . [If] a private plaintiff sought the production of sensitive governmental documents of a foreign state, concepts of governmental privilege would apply.”).   JASTA does not change these firmly established rules, and thus could not expose foreign governments to potential exposure of state secrets.  There is nothing to this argument.

The fearmongering based on the claim that JASTA will lead to suits against the United State abroad also ignores the fact that the U.S. is routinely subject to suit in foreign courts already.  In fact, there is an entire division within the Department of Justice known as the Office of Foreign Litigation that is dedicated solely to representing the interests of the United States in lawsuits in foreign courts.  According to the office’s website, the cases against the United States vary from employment disputes brought by foreign nationals working in U.S. embassies, consulates, and military bases abroad to litigation arising from U.S. agency or military activities in foreign countries.”  Further, “[a]t any given time, foreign lawyers under OFL’s direct supervision represent the United States in approximately 1,000 lawsuits pending in the courts of over 100 countries.”  As these facts reflect, the United States already is subject to suits in foreign jurisdictions for our activities abroad, as a result of the wide range of the United States government’s international activities and broad acceptance of the restrictive theory of sovereign immunity in international practice.  JASTA itself is entirely consistent with the restrictive theory, as it provides an immunity exception for a specific type of tort, which is limited to physical injury in the U.S. and expressly excludes claims arising from any military activities.

Finally, the opponents’ letter fails to acknowledge JASTA’s incredibly narrow scope.  It applies only to acts of terrorism occurring on U.S. soil and causing physical harm here, cannot be invoked as to a foreign government’s military activities, and does not apply to any claims of alleged negligence.  Given these limitations, replication of JASTA by other states will not imperil U.S. interests, as we do not knowingly aid and abet designated terrorist organizations.

These limitations also confirm the utter irresponsibility of the authors’ claim that JASTA would potentially “expose European states, for the first time, to treble-damage terrorism class-action lawsuits in U.S. courts.”  Although the authors make no attempt to explain what the basis for such claims might be, the fact of the matter is that our European partners and allies could not possibly be subject to a suit under JASTA.  It requires the knowing aiding and abetting of a designated foreign terrorist organization, something our European allies do not do.  (JASTA also does not authorize treble damage lawsuits against foreign states under any circumstances, a fact that further underscores the authors’ lack of care and candor in presenting their arguments).

It is increasingly apparent that these false “reciprocity” arguments reflect nothing more than a desire to protect the Saudis from having to answer the legitimate claims of the 9/11 families whose loved ones were murdered on September 11, 2001.

Blumenthal, DeLauro, 9/11 Families Call on President to Sign Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act

Congress Approved Blumenthal-Backed Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, But President Obama May Veto

Bill Would Allow Victims of Terrorism and Their Families to Seek Justice Against Foreign Actors Who Enable Violent Extremism

(Hartford, CT) – At 9 a.m. on Monday, September 12 on the steps of the U.S. District Court in New Haven, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-3) will join families of 9/11 victims in calling on President Obama to sign the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act.

The House of Representatives today voted to approve the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act to allow victims of terrorism and their families to sue foreign actors that sponsor or support violent extremism. Blumenthal helped to lead the measure in the Senate, which passed the measure unanimously in May. President Obama has now indicated he may veto the measure. Blumenthal sent a letter today to the President urging him to sign the bill without delay.

“This bill closes a loophole that denies a fair day in court to American victims of some of the most heinous terrorist attacks in our history. I urge you to sign this bill without delay,” Blumenthal states in his letter.

An Open Letter to Congress from the 9/11 Children for Justice Against Terrorism

ALL 9/11 CHILDREN:  Please read and sign below:

Dear Speaker Ryan, Leader McCarthy, and Whip Scalise,

We, 9/11 children whose parents were brutally murdered in the worst terrorist attack on American soil, respectfully ask you to put S. 2040, the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (“JASTA”) on the calendar for a vote when Congress returns on September 6, 2016 from the August district work break without further delay.

On September 11, 2001, when the smoke cleared and the fires were extinguished, more than 3,000 children were left behind without a parent.  While our nation mourned the 2,996 innocent men, women and children horrifically murdered in the worst terrorist attack humankind has ever witnessed, our worlds crumbled and we were left to navigate our lives in a post 9/11 culture with single parents devastated and heartbroken like us.

We are the children of 9/11, and now, fifteen years later, we want justice for the murderous attacks carried out by 19 radical Islamist terrorists that came to our shores and stole our parents from us.   No child should have to endure their beloved parent’s merciless killing with their remains returned in pieces, sometimes only fragments, over the course of several years and in many cases not at all.

Some of us were very young, spanning from just days old, to toddlers, preschoolers, grade school, middle school, high school, and college age.  Some were adults – some married with children and some just beginning our grown-up lives.  Sadly, some of us were not even born and we never even had the opportunity to meet our fathers and they never had the opportunity to meet us.

While September is quickly approaching, the carefree days of summer will soon end and families will begin to fall into their routines of school, sports, and after-school activities.

For us, the fifteenth anniversary of the murder of our parents is fast approaching and we will once again be reminded of the horrific details of their deaths.   We will be reminded of all that is lost and all that will never be.  We know all too well the pain and suffering terrorism inflicts on the family members left behind and for the injured survivors.

The depravity of terrorism is unfathomable, and the people, entities and/or nations that support these hate-filled organizations should not go unpunished.  They must be held accountable to better protect our nation, our families and help ensure no other child suffers the agonizing loss of a parent to terrorism on American soil.

We understand many families, survivors and Members of Congress have invested several years of hard work in JASTA’s success and its fate is now in your hands.

Some of the undersigned attended the July 14, 2016 Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice hearing on JASTA.  It was with great pride we experienced our government officials working together and we thank Chairman Franks. Rep. Goodlatte and the Committee for their strong support.

We respectfully ask you, our trusted Leaders to please think of us, and help prevent further carnage like the world witnessed on 9/11, and the pain we personally will have to live with for the rest of our lives, by placing this bipartisan legislation on the calendar for a vote as soon as possible.

Sincerely,
