BLOOD MONEY: Illegally Charging Iran for the September 11, 2001 Attacks

A US judge ordered Iran to pay $10.5 billion to victims and insurers of the 9-11 attacks against the World Trade Center.

Today, a judge in New York ordered Iran to pay money for blood they didn’t spill, and inadvertently may have opened the legal door for America, Israel, and Saudi Arabia to be exposed as co-conspirators in the largest murder in world history—the September 11, 2001, attacks.

A US judge ordered Iran to pay $10.5 billion to victims and insurers of the 9-11 attacks against the World Trade Center.

US District Judge George Daniels in New York issued the default judgment on Wednesday, ordering Iran to pay $7.5 billion to 9/11 victims’ families; $6.88 million in punitive damages, and $2 million to each victim’s estate for pain and suffering.  Additionally, the insurance companies who paid for property damage and claimed their businesses were interrupted were awarded $3 billion.

The judge issuing the ruling essentially swallowed “hook, line, and sinker” the U.S. government’s official narrative and its highly controversial “9-11 Commission Report,” which left many more questions unanswered than solved.  Specifically, the narrative put forth by the government to explain the 9-11 attack scenario involving all kinds of suspicious activity, missing information, scientific anomalies, and witness and evidence tampering.  Examples of this include: 

  1. The physically impossible destruction of “Building 7—the Solomon building”—by a purported “office fire,” which the government both failed to include in the 9-11 report; and which has been cited as evidence of a controlled demolition, indicating a pre-planned attack by others.
  2. Free-fall rate of speed for both the Solomon Building and the Twin Towers, indicating the removal, or destruction of the center of the buildings—which again suggests pre-laid detonation charges.
  3. Photographs of strange fires igniting and destroying engine blocks, molten steel pouring out of the buildings, the impossibility of “low-heat fires” able to melt steel beams and pancaking as a result of plane fuel igniting.  Note:  this material was referenced by Dr. Judy Wood in her book “Where did the towers go?” and her own lawsuit alleging conspiracy and misconduct in the 9-11 attacks and the use of “energy weapons.”
  4. No plane parts found at the scene that matched the planes presumed to have been hijacked (either in New York, Pennsylvania, or at the Pentagon), and photographs of a van delivering an engine with serial numbers that were from another plane than the one allegedly destroyed in the attacks.
  5. Immediate removal of Twin Tower building steel by hundreds of dump trucks, and failure to provide a criminal investigation of steel violating the civil rights of victims and criminal procedure. 
  6. Hijackers claimed to have been killed appeared later on from various places around the world, and claimed their complete innocence of any participation in the act. 
  7. Indications of a criminal conspiracy to defraud insurance companies involving Larry Silverstein (owner of World Trade Center towers who insured them for double their previous value requested and was paid a double portion of the insurance money for them after the attack), New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and key members of his administration, Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, CIA Director George Tenant, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Pentagon Joint Chiefs of Staff, Pentagon Comptroller Dov Zakheim and son Roger Zakheim, Defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton and Carlyle group, Israeli Government Leaders and Mossad Intelligence Services, Saudi Arabian Prince Abdullah Azziz, Union Bank of Switzerland, and others.
  8. Other material evidence in this matter.

Hossein Sheikholeslam, a senior aide to Iran’s parliamentary speaker, responded to the ruling by calling it “absurd and ridiculous.”  RT reports that he said:

“I never heard about this ruling and I’m very much surprised because the judge had no reason whatsoever to issue such a ruling… Iran never took part in any court hearings related to the events of September 11, 2001,” he told Sputnik“Even if such an absurd and ridiculous decision has been made, the charges simply hold no water because Iran has never been mentioned at any stage of the investigation and the trials that followed.”

University of Tehran’s Seyed Mohammad Marandi responded to the ruling by saying,

“Why should Iran be answerable to some judge in some court in the US?  The US should be put on trial for this monster, and the Iranians are the victims of these Wahhabi extremists.”

Despite the fact that none of the 19 hijackers were Iranian citizens (fifteen were Saudi Arabians, two were from the United Arab Emirates, and one each from Egypt and Lebanon), Iran was blamed, charged, and found guilty—amazingly, or despicably, depending on your conscience.

And despite the fact that Zacharias Mousawi has reported that Saudi Arabia was involved in the planning of the attacks, last year Saudi Arabia was legally cleared from paying billions in damages to families of 9/11 victims after Judge Daniels dismissed claims that the Kingdom 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.

The fact is, there were evidence and testimony that has not yet been heard—but soon will be.  This evidence includes a Swiss Bank Whistleblower, a U.S. Army Officer, and documents obtained by Wikileaks about Swiss Bank accounts funding terrorist activity, which was covered up by the U.S. Intelligence Services and Congress and the President of the United States.

Iran should immediately use this issue and case as the opportunity to re-open the entire 9-11 mystery, all the records, and examine every piece of evidence and testimony in the matter to force the questions and raise the issues that no one has dared to ask. 

Iran can then introduce new evidence and testimony from all the voices which have been suppressed in this matter, which include:

CIA analyst Susan Lindauer: Book “Extreme Prejudice.”

Judy Wood: Book “Where did the towers go?”

Alan Sobrosky: 911 Expert

Richard Gage: 911 Architects and Engineers

Dr. Jim Fetzer: Scholars for 911 Truth

Barbara Honegger: Pentagon Attacks

Christopher Bollyn: 911 Author

Scott Bennett: U.S. Army Terrorist Finance Analyst

Brad Birkenfeld: Union Bank of Switzerland Whistleblower

And many others waiting for the chance to speak.

Then the “evil joke” by the Americans upon Iran, might backfire as the truth awakens—and with it the world.
