US court rules Saudis not liable for Sept 11 attacks


rawstory.com

A federal appeals court on Thursday ruled Saudi Arabia could not be held liable for the September 11 attacks against the United States despite charitable donations that ended up in the hands of Al-Qaeda.

Upholding a 2006 decision by a lower court, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled inadmissible a lawsuit in which families of victims of the 9/11 attacks charged that Saudi Arabia, four Saudi princes, a Saudi charity and bank had given material support to Al-Qaeda.

The plaintiffs in the case cited Saudi donations to Muslim charity groups that were later transferred to the Al-Qaeda terror network, arguing the Saudis were responsible for financing the 9/11 attacks.

The saudi's are such GREAT friends, and have so much oil, I mean influence, that this was always going to be a non-starter.

As we've seen with halliburton, kbr and blackwater, friends in the whitehouse means never having to say you're sorry.

What?

So just because the majority of the hijackers were Saudis, and they were funded by Saudi money makes these plaintiffs believe that Saudi Arabia is somehow liable?


Apparently they havn't heard of W's long lost brother "Bandar Bush".

It's good to have friends in high places.
