Makes no sense. That's the first time I've even heard Iran mentioned in anything to do with 9/11. Seems to be a stretch.....are they also suing Saudi, Pakistan, Afghanistan, etc?
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.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Ten terrorist attack victims who won financial claims against Iran can seize a $2.8 million judgment owed to that country's defense ministry, a federal appeals court said Friday. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the seizure would not violate agreements between Iran and the United States to resolve the Iran hostage crisis. The court also said the money, which has grown to more than $9.4 million with interest and attorneys' fees, was among assets that had been frozen by an executive order. A call to an attorney who represented Iran's defense ministry was not immediately returned. The victims include survivors of a 1997 suicide bombing in Jerusalem. A lower court judge determined that Iran provided training and other material assistance to the bombers and ordered Iran to pay the victims damages ranging from $2.5 million to $15 million, according to the 9th Circuit ruling. Another victim is the son of former Iranian prime minister Shapoir Bakhtiar, who opposed Iran's Islamic regime and was murdered at his home in France in 1991. Iran won the $2.8 million judgment in 1997 against an American defense company that had agreed to sell it an air combat system. The sale, however, was disrupted by the 1979 Iranian revolution, and Iran sought reimbursement. The 9th Circuit has previously ruled that a separate group of terrorist attack victims who won financial judgments against Iran could go after $17 million owed to an Iranian bank.
However, the alleged Israeli engineers have now been fingered for sniping at U.S. Soldiers and the murder of two female American Marines who had their throats slit and then placed in garbage dumps.
These female Marines had been investigating the origins of the I.E.D. (Improvised Explosives Devices). And of course it gets worse. It can now be reported that the origin of the I.E.D.'s, come not from Iran, but come from Zapata Engineering of North Carolina, Hawaii and Tel Aviv.

So US is friend with the Kurds given that they fight ISIS ...
Or US is friend with the Turks given that they fight the Kurds ...
That two-cent logic doesn't stand when you 'create' your enemies because you need your public opinion to be convinced about the righteousness of a given militaristic intervention. Intervention that doesn't even need to serve your own interests but those of whom you are the puppet.
