This just might be the most insane ruling I have ever seen. A NY judge has ruled that Iran is to pay $10.5 billion in damages to 9/11 victims. This in spite of the fact that Iran had no conceivable role in 9/11.

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


Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia, whom the "blank 28 pages" allegedly indicate funded 9/11, were cleared of any wrongdoing by this court last year. Unbelievable.

As a friend just said to me, it looks like Judge Daniels might be throwing in "hat in the ring" for the vacant SCOTUS seat.
