US Court Finds Iran Liable for 9/11

By Kit Knightly | OffGuardian | May 2, 2018

A US court has just handed down the verdict that the Islamic Republic of Iran owes the families of those who died on 11th September 2001 6 billion dollars in damages.

It behooves us to point out that no one, anywhere, ever accused Iran of being behind the 9/11 attacks for over a decade afterwards. The attempt to shift the blame to Iran has been a slow developing situation. The idea was first floated by James Woolsey, former head of the CIA, in 2015.

The official position of the United States government is that 19 people (15 Saudi Arabians, 2 Egyptians, 2 Emiratis and a Lebanese man) hijacked the planes and flew them into their targets. Whether or not you subscribe to this view, the introduction of Iran as some kind accomplice is a massive contradiction. One that makes very little sense.

This isn’t the first time a civil case has attempted to attribute blame for 9/11. A similar civil case was brought against Saddam Hussein, during the build up to the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. Hopefully this verdict doesn’t presage yet another war in the Middle East.

Perhaps the most telling part is that Saudi Arabia, the country allegedly home to 15 of the 19 people allegedly guilty of the crime, remains untouchable. No sanctions. No rebukes. They’re not on the “state sponsor of terrorism” list (Iran is). A case brought against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, filed by a different group of victims’ families and blaming them for 9/11, was thrown out of court.

Is “guilt for 9/11” simply a weapon to be deployed against anyone America deems an enemy? How much respect for the victims, or their families, does that show? How much respect for the truth?

Certainly, this verdict will get far more press coverage than the new petition, filed on behalf of a third group of victims’ families, demanding a new investigation of 9/11.

  1. God help us. Black is White, Israel (the Zionist entity so-called Israel of “Dancing Israelis” infamy) is Iran, the Truth is a Lie, the Judiciary is the Antithesis of Law. (And Woolsey is a died-in-the-wool neocon as*hole.)

  2. This judge has made a complete fool of himself with his verdict. It could be amusing to read how he arrived at his ludicrous “Judgement” some 17 years after the event, particularly as the NIST report never mentioned Iran.
    Also, it would be interesting for the American Government to explain why Saudi Arabia was blamed for the attack, but Afghanistan was invaded by the USA as a direct response to “9/11”.
    The American government, Judiciary, CIA, Department of Defence, Norad, Pentagon etc, owe the American PEOPLE a DETAILED explanation regarding the Colossal FRAUD of “9/11”
