Understanding Jasta

October 3rd, 2016

Episode 335 of 337 episodes

On Wednesday, the U.S. Congress voted to override a presidential veto on the proposed Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, or Jasta. It's the first time that Congress has overridden a veto from President Obama, with the bill receiving overwhelming support in a Congress not renowned for its unity. We talk to CSIS's Jon Alterman about the law, what it would mean, and how it reflects a shift in how the U.S.-Saudi alliance is perceived from both sides.
