Federal Magistrate Rules Against Al-Qaeda, Taliban and Iran in 9/11 Civil Case

Via CBS News:

Federal Magistrate Frank Maas has recommended that Al-Qaeda, the Taliban and Iran be held liable for six billion dollars in a 2011 civil suit brought against them by relatives of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The assessment is symbolic in nature, as it will be impossible to collect damages. Still, at least some of the plaintiffs are pleased with the results:

Plaintiff Ellen Saracini …  is happy about Manhattan Federal Magistrate Judge Frank Maas’ recommendation Monday. Her husband, Victor, was the captain of one of the planes that struck the World Trade Center.

    I think the class action suit against the Saudi Royal Family over 9/11 far more interesting, along with the reaction of the Federal government to it.

      To dream the impossible dream
      To fight the unbeatable foe
      To bear with unbearable sorrow
      To run where the brave dare not go

      To right the unrightable wrong

    WTF, so now Iran is responsible? Did the US misread the name when they invaded Iraq? In that case the millions of relatives of Iraqi victims should sue the US.

    “relatives of the 9/11 terrorist attacks”

    I didn’t know attacks had relatives.

    There’s a term for this sort of thing: it’s called “frivolous lawsuit.”

    My head almost exploded like twc 7 when I read this, fucking 5 dancing israelis are caught red handed and its blamed on the beautiful country of Iran. I fucking hate US policy, both in the US and Foreign, my forefathers would be ashamed of us as citizens letting us get bitch slapped by these miniscule fuckwits ruining this country. When are we going to just explode a 350 million americans strong can of whupass on these 1000 evil cunts that we let be in charge? 350 million to 1000 those or pretty good odds I say.

    Hmm… so if Iran has to pay for “letting pass through” those guys what do we have to pay here in Germany? “We” even let the guys live here and plan 9/11. Luckily they did not train here – that could get very expensive… How is Floridas economy right now?

    Well, that settles that, I guess.
