Senate Kills Graham Amendment

Last updated: July 31, 2020 | November 05, 2009 | Karan Emery

The Senate just tabled the amendment proposed by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) that would have prohibited use of Justice Department funds to prosecute the 9/11 terror suspects in U.S. federal courts. Effectively, that means it’s dead.

The amendment, S.A. 2669, to the Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, would have forced the government to try the suspected plotters of the 9/11 attacks in military commissions. The Obama administration opposed the amendment, but still has not announced where it wants to try the 9/11 suspects.
