800 Families File Lawsuit Against Saudi Arabia Over 9/11

Authored by Carey Wedler via TheAntiMedia.org,

Eight-hundred families of 9/11 victims and 1,500 first responders, along with others who suffered as a result of the attacks, have filed a lawsuit against Saudi Arabia over its alleged complicity in the 2001 terror attacks, according to an exclusive report by local New York outlet Pix 11.

The legal document, filed in a federal court in Manhattan, describes the Saudi role in the attacks. Pix 11 reports:

The document details how officials from Saudi embassies supported hijackers Salem al-Hazmi and Khalid Al-Mihdhar 18 months before 9/11.

 

The officials allegedly helped them find apartments, learn English and obtain credit cards and cash. The documents state that the officials helped them learn how to blend into the American landscape.”

For years, suspicions have swirled that some Saudi officials had ties to the gruesome attacks. The recent release of FBI reports produced shortly after the attacks provided details to justify growing skepticism against the Saudis. These details were further bolstered by the release of 28 pages originally withheld from the 9/11 commission report. Though the U.S. government downplayed the findings, even some lawmakers expressed concern.

Pix 11 further described the lawsuit, which reportedly relies on information from the FBI’s investigations:

The suit also produces evidence that officials in the Saudi embassy in Germany supported lead hijacker Mohamed Atta. It claims that a Saudi official was in the same hotel in Virginia with several hijackers the night before the attacks.

The suit also allegessome of the hijackers had special markers in their passports, identifying them as al-Qaida sympathizers.

According to the suit, filed by aviation law firm Kreindler & Kreindler, “Saudi royals, who for years had been trying to curry favor with fundamentalists to avoid losing power, were aware that funds from Saudi charities were being funneled to al-Qaida.

The charities were alter egos of the Saudi government,” Jim Kreindler told Pix 11.

According to Kreindler, “there was a direct link between all the charities and Osama bin Laden and…they operated with the full knowledge of Saudi officials.”

The lawsuit reportedly details how funds were transferred from charities inside Saudi Arabia to the terror group. One of those charities, Al-Haramain Islamic Foundation, has been designated a sponsor of terrorism by the U.S. government.

Kreindler insists Saudi involvement occurred and was blatantly malicious.

The Saudis were so duplicitous,” he said. “They claim to be allies fighting with U.S. against Iran, while at the same time working with the terrorists. There’s no question they had a hand in the 9/11 attacks.”

Until late last year, families of 9/11 victims were unable to sue foreign countries over their potential involvement in the attacks. In September, Congress overrode President Obama’s veto of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, which allows for the suit filed this week.

President Obama, like George Bush before him, enjoyed a cozy relationship with the kingdom. The Bush family has had a long, profitable history with the Saudi regime over shared oil interests. Obama continued to protect the ongoing, warm relationship by approving billions of dollars worth of weapons sales to the kingdom. He also backed the monarchy’s onslaught of Yemen, where thousands of civilians have been killed with American-supplied weapons.

The Obama and Bush administrations have done nothing but fight the 9/11 families for 15 years,” James Riches, the father of a first responder who died in the attacks and participant in the suit, told Pix 11 last month. “The United States government took the side of the Saudis over the 9/11 families.

President Trump, for his part, previously criticized the Saudis, even acknowledging their alleged role in the 9/11 attacks when the 28-pages were released. However, since taking office, Trump has moved closer to Saudi Arabia, approving a weapons deal even Barack Obama rejected. Trump has also continued bombing Yemen, and Exxon Mobil, whose former CEO now serves at Trump’s secretary of state, has historical business ties to the Saudis. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson recently refused to acknowledge Saudi Arabia’s human rights abuses.

Considering Trump’s unpredictable leadership and his previous allusion to the Saudi role in 9/11, it is currently unclear how the president will react to the recent lawsuit. Regardless, those filing the suit appear to be committed to their attempts to achieve accountability.

This lawsuit is a demonstration of the unwavering commitment of the 9/11 families to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for its critical role in the 9/11 attacks,” Kreindler said.

Are they seriously playing the 9-11 victim card?  Some people have no shame. /sarc

Seriously, though, no one is allowed to criticize 9-11 victims... This is going to be so fun to watch.

imo this is the best news since the enabling law was passed.  i would love to know what was on those obama veto overriding senators (all but reid) minds when they did this.  running the saudis through u.s. courts and keeping the israeli connection hidden will be quite hard, imo, especially given the growth of the truther movement, the internet alt news, and social networks generally.

maybe they will all act like, wow, what a surprise!  who could have thought the israelis could have been involved?  well these guys, for a start:

Irrespective of wether or not this is the correct target, it is what it is and it is precisely what the Saudis were worried about when they promised they would sell all their USD-based assets if the law was changed to allow the famililies to take action. A judgement (potentially irationally disproportionate in view of the emotion involved) pending delivery could potentially freeze ALL Saudi USD-denominated assets accessible in/to the US as either physical assets (Real Estate etc.) OR within the USD/SWIFT Banking system (like with Iran). So things could get interesting from here? Perhaps more incentive for the Saudis to start trading energy with China in CNH and using the new Sino-Russian CHIPS inter-bank payment system, all of which would be beyond US jurisdiction.

Qui bono? Another small ME State.

jeff montanye's picture

maybe but i don't think, ultimately, that israel will benefit from this.  investigative lawsuits have the potential for finding out things they weren't intended to find out, sometimes.

especially if the saudis defend themselves vigorously, hire a lot of jewish (and some goy) lawyers, ask why were they singled out when judge alvin k. hellerstein kept all the suits against israeli corporations, etc. out of court.  i would think that muslim truthers would be developed by the obviously uneven treatment of the arabs vs. the jews, etc.

i hope this guy jim kreindler follows the evidence rather than allows a railroading.  his firm has been in this since the beginning, also successfully sued libya over the lockerbie bombing.  

this has the potential to be the trial of the century and make jim kreindler a storied hero to the world.

or not.

yeah, well that retroactive 'insurance' money from the gov't is all spent...

time to go after deeper pockets for the deaths of clueless idiots sixteen years ago.

It will never end.

clueless idiots?  that seems a touch cold.  

and it will start to end (the end of the beginning) when the truth comes out.  this isn't going to be the bombing of the maine, imo.  not even pearl harbor.  more like the gulf of tonkin (non) incident or the u.s.s. liberty.

and flew that whatever it was (no aircraft engine though) into the pentagon, and said put thick concrete over the hole in pennsylvania before someone digs a bit deeper, and sent all the evidence steel from the wtc (nearly) to china to be melted and mixed, and decided to spend less money investigating the most lethal foreign attack on the continental u.s. since the war of 1812 than was spent on monica and her blue dress, and exactly what those orders were that cheney gave that the young naval aide questioned repeatedly whether they still stood, and why dov zakheim's "anti" hijacking machines, installed on the 9-11 planes, didn't seem to do any good that day, and why george bush stayed immobile for nearly ten minutes after being told the second plane hit (and the secret service let him), and why donald rumsfeld was picking up debris on the pentagon lawn, etc. for two hours instead of at his desk as secretary of defense.

it does make one wonder.

@ Shit,

You mean these "Dancing Israelis?"

It is beyond the slightest shadow of doubt that Israeli agents had foreknowledge of the 911 attacks, and, together with scientific forensic proof of controlled demolitions of WTC 1, 2 and 7.

The very first people arrested on suspicion of involvement in the 9/11 attacks turned out to be five Israeli Jews: Sivan Kurzberg, Paul Kurzberg (Sivan's brother), Oded Ellner, Yaron Shmuel and Omer Marmari. Their white Urban Moving Systems van was stopped and they were arrested within hours of the attacks, on the afternoon of 9/11/01. Sivan Kurzberg, Ellner and Shmuel had been observed by several eyewitnesses at the rear parking lot of the Doric apartment complex in Union City, New Jersey. They were seen atop the van with cameras, high-fiving, smiling, joking with cries of joy and mockery, hugging each other, and taking photographs and video of the Twin Towers within a few minutes of the first plane impact.

Marc Perelman of New York's Jewish weekly The Forward reported on March 15, 2002 that the FBI had concluded that at least two of the Israelis were agents working for the Mossad, and their employer Urban Moving Systems Incorporated was a suspected intelligence front. On September 14, 2001, Urban's owner Dominick Suter fled the U.S. for Israel. Perelman also tells on video of how he was able to confirm that, according to the FBI, two of the five Israelis were "Mossad agents". Christopher Ketcham says the transcripts of the Carl Cameron report were later removed from the Fox News website following pressure from Abe Foxman of the ADL, and replaced with the rather Orwellian message: "This story no longer exists".

When arrested, the Israelis - dubbed the "High-Fivers" by the FBI - were found to have airline tickets with immediate travel dates for destinations world-wide, and tie-ins to 9/11. Dual US-Israeli citizen Michael Chertoff, who co-authored the USA Patriot Act" and headed the Justice Department's Criminal Division in the aftermath of 9/11, is a prime suspect for pulling strings to get the Israelis released and sent home.

Not only is Obama a Scum Fuck Pure Evil Psychopath, he's now officially become, although he's always been, an accessory to War Crimes, Treason & Conspriacy to Muder Amercian's.

Its safe to say now, any Criminal Fraud CEO "President" of the Criminal Fraud UNITED STATES, CORP. INC. from here on out would have to defacto continue the Crime, swear an Oath to Treason & continue the PsyOp / False Narrative Flag of 911.

TRUMP is 100% informed about 9/11.  

He needs to pull the trigger and INVESTIGATE...this horseshit once and for all.

This is still my favorite NO BRAINER PENTAGON 9/11 video....PLEASE explain it?

It begins with the ultimate back ground music...NOTE: I can't believe this video is still here after all of these years...

iran was scared shitless and made concessions as to avert the 'evil axis'

from '9/11' -2008 saudi arabia / arabian peninsula etal., were making money hand over fist, and right back into bush and cronies pockets...[!]

ask yourself this?

where have the saudis etal. ever paid for their sins in the ME since the slimey-limey british fucked-up the entire asia`minor muslim religion!!

they fucked turkey, india, france, italy and greece etel

'the stink of oil' is on Bush Dynasty...period!

if there were no planes that actually crashed on 9/11 (i'm convinced there were not), how then would the Saudis be responsible?

Don't muddy the water with this fucking bullshit. It's hard enough talking to people about the stuff without people muddying the water with crackpot shit. The science is clear check out a AE911 truth. Yes planes hit the towers but that's not what caused them to fall down.

By the way, why is it that 16 years after fires caused a 57 story skyscraper to fall down according to the official NIST report, the building codes have never been revisited for modern high-rise skyscrapers?

I thought it would've happened long ago frankly, but Jesus H Christ we need that fucking tipping point theory to kick in already.

I happen to think this is a very big deal, it is an existential threat to SA.  This lawsuit, while aimed at compensating the victims of 911 and their families, is in effect, a citizen attack on the foreign policy of the U.S.  The Saudis will have a dickens of a time defending themselves as they are, in fact, complicit.  But admitting that would be crazy and expressing remorse, downright deadly.  The rulers of SA are rich playboys.  They give money and show deference to the Wahabbis that helped the original King Saud to establish his Kingdom, but they are great sinners.  To now say they regret supporting the Wahabbis would cause civil war in SA.  They are over a barrel and I suspect they will spend billions trying to keep this case from even reaching discovery.  Hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen, we're in for one hell of a ride.
