This will not end near as well as people think. It is not very likely that monetary damages will ever be recovered, about all that is plausible is making a media spectacle of this.

But it's out there and that is what counts for now. Nobody knows what will come of it.

What is out there? Has Saudi Arabia guilt been established beyond the tabloid level?

and a media spectacle is exactly what the authors of the bill hand in mind, IMO.

Now we have Saudi Arabia publishing a report indicting the US of destroying the world trade center and blaming others for it:

"September 11 is one of winning cards in the American archives, because all the wise people in the world who are experts on American policy and who analyze the images and the videos [of 9/11] agree unanimously that what happened in the [Twin] Towers was a purely American action, planned and carried out within the United States. Proof of this is the sequence of continuous explosions that dramatically ripped through both buildings... Expert structural engineers demolished them with explosives, while the planes crashing [into them] only gave the green light for the detonation they were not the reason for the collapse. But the U.S. still spreads blame in all directions. [This policy] can be dubbed 'victory by means of archives."

"On September 11, the U.S. attained several victories at the same time, that [even] the hawks [who were at that time] in the White House could not have imagined."
