Senate Says: Saudis, Keep on Killing

In the first big public effort to defeat an arms deal to the Saudis on account of their aggression and their wretched human rights record, the Senate "tabled" a motion by four Senators on a bill that would cancel this Obama-Saudi $1.15 billion sale of tanks and other weapons.  Over 70 Senators voted to table and effectively kill the bill.  We be cheered to a certain extent that some 27 Senators vote "no", but that's not much comfort for Yemenis being killed daily by the Saudi princes.
