The Victims of 9/11 and Their Families are Calling Upon You Mr. Congressman

The Victims of 9/11 and Their Families are Calling Upon You Mr. Congressman

Your Honor, (Congressman Rick Larsen of Washington state)

Recently Congress unanimously passed House Resolution 3815 along with S. 2040 in the Senate also known as the Justice Against Terrorism Act or J.A.S.T.A. legislation.

As of today this bill has been sitting upon the President’s desk for the past ten days waiting to be signed into law and implemented.

This law was created and passed by Congress in order to provide due justice to the victims families of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks and to see to it that the United States sets an immediate precedent that our nation will not be involved in (ourselves) nor allow state sponsored terrorism type acts to be a global standard to be used by other nations such as Saudi Arabia, in this case, regarding 9/11.

The language within this bill was specifically written to state that this will no longer considered to be acceptable and that, those nations and entities that do commit acts of terrorism, will be fully be held 100% accountable in the court of law, as due financial compensation will now be on the table for victims of terrorism world wide.

Illegally violating sovereign nations states and international standards of law can and no longer will be allowed by anyone, nation, state, person nor entity according to the intent and language written within this law.

Now for me to see Mr. Congressman that you did not cosponsor the JASTA bill in the House and stand with the victims of 9/11 is troubling to say the least sir.

As of 1 pm EST today the President actually vetoed the JASTA bill in what will be the damning and defining first veto and moment of President Barack Obama’s career and legacy.

With all due respect sir, your lack of actions regarding this bill, are actually indirectly in effect taking the side of the same terrorist who murdered 2,996 of the same nation’s citizens on September 11, 2001 in which you literally swore an oath under the U.S. Constitution to serve and to protect.

Now what the President did himself is nothing short of treason itself and he deserves to be impeached immediately for his actions on J.A.S.T.A. alone, not to mention many other high crimes and misdemeanors he would undoubtedly be found guilty of as well regarding Libya and Syria just to name two examples, according to law scholars such Professor Bruce Fein amongst others.

In Article II, Section 4, of the U.S. Constitution states, “The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

In the Federalist Papers (No. 65), Alexander Hamilton wrote that a president should be impeached for “offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to society itself.”

Now at this point the J.A.S.T.A. bill gets sent back to you along with your colleagues Mr. Congressman. Senator Mitch McConnel stated last week that he is prepared to overturn the President’s veto and no doubt that next week this will become a hot topic issue that you will probably try to avoid being a rough election year for members of the House.

I ask you sir to please support and sign the Justice Against Terrorism Act next week once Congress is reconvened and have the guts to vote to overturn the first veto of the President ever.

The victims of 9/11 deserve justice and our citizens here in Washington state deserve to have a Congressman who will protect the interest of the people in accordance to the rule law and your personal job duties description as acting Congressman.
