    Default US Justice just hit new low - Iran charged for 9/11

    Few months ago U.S. District Judge George Daniels in New York dismissed claims against Saudi Arabia by families of victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on grounds that Saudi Arabia had sovereign immunity from damage claims by families
    U.S. judge dismisses Sept. 11 victims' case against Saudi Arabia | Reuters
    A U.S. judge on Tuesday dismissed claims against Saudi Arabia by families of victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, who accused the country of providing material support to al Qaeda. U.S. District Judge George Daniels in Manhattan said Saudi Arabia had sovereign immunity from damage claims by families of the nearly 3,000 people killed in the attacks, and from insurers that covered losses suffered by building owners and businesses.

    "The allegations in the complaint alone do not provide this court with a basis to assert jurisdiction over defendants," Daniels wrote.

    The victims had sought to supplement their case with new allegations to avoid that result, including based on testimony they secured from Zacarias Moussaoui, a former al Qaeda operative imprisoned for his role in the attacks.

    Daniels said even if he allowed the plaintiffs to assert those new claims, doing so would be "futile, however, because the additional allegations do not strip defendants of sovereign immunity."
    and today the same judge made Iran liable for 9/11 because it is not USA ally, totally ignoring that it is sovereign state and al Qaeda is natural enemy of Iran
    Iran Told to Pay $10.5 Billion to Sept. 11 Kin, Insurers - Bloomberg Business
    Iran was ordered by a U.S. judge to pay more than $10.5 billion in damages to families of people killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and to a group of insurers.
    U.S. District Judge George Daniels in New York issued a default judgment Wednesday against Iran for $7.5 billion to the estates and families of people who died at the World Trade Center and Pentagon. It includes $2 million to each estate for the victims’ pain and suffering plus $6.88 million in punitive damages.
    Daniels also awarded $3 billion to insurers including Chubb Ltd. that paid property damage, business interruption and other claims.
    Earlier in the case, Daniels found that Iran had failed to defend claims that it aided the Sept. 11 hijackers and was therefore liable for damages tied to the attacks. Daniels’s ruling Wednesday adopts damages findings by a U.S. magistrate judge in December. While it is difficult to collect damages from an unwilling foreign nation, the plaintiffs may try to collect part of the judgments using a law that permits parties to tap terrorists’ assets frozen by the government.
    Looks like USA finally declared themselves as superstate where District Courts can make any judgements against countries not loyal to USA

    So the fact that the bombers were mostly Saudi nationals and practising Sunni/Wahhabis Muslims. Would automatically lead you to think that their(Wahhabis) declared enemies the Shias of Iran were providing them training and funds to launch the 9/11 atrocity. Ooohh and to base your findings on the lack of passport stamps from Iran as proof that they were there in Iran for the said training. What the absolute Fck.

    It's not just the Yanks that are behind this.

    They haven't even finished annihilating Syria with their "head hacker" proxies and now they have Iran lined up in the cross hairs.

    Does a district court judge have the power to make a decision such as this or is he just a crank? Anyway everyone knows it was Saddam!

    Oddball judge in US makes oddball decision.
    Oddball in Ireland loses sh!t over it.
    Everyone else says 'meh'.

    Iran has probably suffered more from al Qaeda than the U.S has.
    Maybe Iran should counter-sue.
