Iran ordered to pay $10.5 billion for 9/11 by US judge

from RT (will not link to the article because these days, RT locks your computer up with more tracking software than the CIA’s website does… also, RT Twitter feed was posted in the middle of the article with a link to that metal worker idiot who bent a 1/4″ plain steel rod after heating it and said “it’s a fucking noodle” as if that proves the official 9/11 story… so fuck RT)

A US judge ordered Iran to pay over $10 billion in damages to families of victims who died on September 11, 2001 – even though there is no evidence of Tehran’s direct connection to the attack. The same judge earlier cleared Saudi Arabia from culpability.

The default judgement was issued by US District Judge George Daniels in New York on Wednesday. Under the ruling, Tehran was ordered to pay $7.5 billion to 9/11 victims’ families, including $2 million to each victim’s estate for pain and suffering, and another $6.88 million in punitive damages. Insurers who paid for property damage and claimed their businesses were interrupted were awarded an additional $3 billion in the ruling.

The ruling is noteworthy particularly since none of the 19 hijackers on September 11 were Iranian citizens. Fifteen were citizens of Saudi Arabia, while two were from the United Arab Emirates, and one each from Egypt and Lebanon.

Saudi Arabia was legally cleared from paying billions in damages to families of 9/11 victims last year, after Judge Daniels dismissed claims that the country provided material support to the terrorists and ruled that Riyadh had sovereign immunity. Saudi attorneys argued in court that there was no evidence directly linking the country to 9/11.

  1. Seems like this is just an excuse to dip into Iran’s frozen assets in the US, which is estimated at 30 to 100 billion dollars…

    • My thoughts exactly.

      Could there be stronger evidence of the sheer corruption of U.S courts? There is utterly no factual basis for holding Iran liable for 9/11!!!

      • Actually, I see it is a default judgment, which means Iran wasn’t even defending. And could it even have been served with process? How and where?

        What nonsense!

  2. Utter nonsense! The well-researched redacted section of the 9/11 report is supposed to conclusively establish the Saudi connection to 9/11 beyond doubt. The judge could have done a public service in calling for a release of the report. We have a criminal justice system all right–a justice system that is run by and serves the criminals.
