Barack Obama’s decision to veto legislation that would allow Americans to sue the Middle East country for their role in 9/11 puts the president at odds with nearly all of congress.

This week, Obama officially vetoed the legislation, sending it back to congress for a potential congressional override.
Now, for the first time in Obama’s presidency, that override might actually happen.
