The White House on Wednesday slammed the Senate's nearly unanimous vote to reject President Barack Obama's veto of legislation allowing relatives of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks to sue Saudi Arabia's government. "This is the single most embarrassing thing this United States' Senate has done possibly since 1983," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters in a briefing, referring to the last time when the chamber so overwhelmingly overrode a president's veto. Earnest said some lawmakers had only recently been informed about potential drawbacks to approving the legislation.

The Senate earlier opposed the veto by 97-1, so the "Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act" will become law. The veto override is a blow to Obama, and to Saudi Arabia, one of the longest-standing U.S. allies in the Arab world.
