First lawsuits against Saudi Arabia come forth for 9/11 terror attack
U.S. insurance companies have officially filed suit against Saudi Arabia’s largest bank, as well as other financial companies on April 14 for their role in aiding, abeting, and/or funding Osama Bin Laden and the 9/11 terrorists. Â This is the first lawsuits to be made against a Saudi Arabian interests since Congress voted to remove the Middle Eastern power from immunity over the biggest terror attack ever on American soil.
Two Saudi banks, along with businesses related to the family of Osama bin Laden face more than $4 billion in lawsuits over the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. Reuters reports the plaintiffs are more than two dozen US insurers.
The defendants are the Al Rajhi Bank, National Commercial Bank, aviation contractor Dallah Avco, the Mohamed Binladin Co, the Muslim World League and others.
They are accused of havingÂ “aided and abetted”Â terror by doing a variety ofÂ “activities in support of Al-Qaeda”Â in the years before the attacks.
“But for the assistance provided by defendants,”Â the lawsuit says,Â “Al-Qaeda could not have successfully planned, coordinated, and carried out the September 11th attacks, which were a foreseeable and intended result of their material support and sponsorship of Al-Qaeda.”
The insurers are seeking $4.2 billion in compensatory and punitive damages. – Â Russia Today
Conspiracy theories, as well as hard scientific and financial evidence, have shown that the terror attacks on 9/11 were not solely the actions of one country, or were done solely by mercenaries trained and funded by Saudi Arabia. Â And in fact, the revelations of Saudi’s involvement in 9/11 only came to light recently as it was covered up for over a decade and a half by the U.S. government, and their classifying of investigations conducted following the attacks.
9/11 has been discovered to have accomplished many things, but at the core of it was a way to bring about the surveillance state of the U.S. people through the Patriot Act, to give the U.S. military an opening to invade multiple countries within the Middle East, and to achieve a massive bank robbery of the highest order. Â And 16 years after the attacks, Saudi Arabia is now the unwilling scapegoat to pay for the crimes that probably include Israel and factions within the U.S. itself.
