Obama administration sides with Saudis over 911 victims?

According to Creeping Sharia:

Today the Obama Administration filed in the Supreme Court a document that expressed the Administration’s decision to stand with a group of Saudi princes and against the right of American citizens — 9/11 family members — to have our day in court. Let there be no doubt: The filing was political in nature and stands as a betrayal of everyone who lost a loved one or was injured on September 11, 2001
We are deeply dismayed by this decision, filed by the solicitor general of the United States in response to the Supreme Court’s February 23, 2009 invitation for the government to express its views in the 9/11 families’ request to appeal a portion of the case to the Court. The Administration’s filing mocks our system of justice and strikes a blow against the public’s right to know the facts about who financed and supported the murder of 3,000 innocent people. It undermines our fight against terrorism and suggests a green light to terrorist sympathizers the world over that they can send money to al Qaeda without having to worry that they will be held accountable in the U.S. Courts for the atrocities that result.
