9/11 families accuse Saudi Arabia of complicity in the terrorist attacks

Pix11 news agency: Families of 800 victims have filed a lawsuit accusing the Saudis of complicity in the worst terror attacks on American soil.

Fifteen of the 19 hijackers were Saudi nationals. The classified FBI documents released last year, show a number of them have been in contact with the Saudi Embassy in Washington.

Pix.com wrote that the legal action, filed in federal court in Manhattan, details a scenario of involvement by Saudi officials who are said to have aided some of the hijackers before the attacks. The documents detail how officials from Saudi embassies supported hijackers Salem al-Hazmi and Khalid Al-Mihdhar 18 months before 9/11. The officials allegedly helped them find apartments, learn English and obtain credit cards and cash. The suit also produces evidence that officials in the Saudi embassy in Germany supported lead hijacker Mohamed Atta. It claims that a Saudi official was in the same hotel in Virginia with several hijackers the night before the attacks. The lawsuit asserts that the Saudi royals, who for years had been trying to curry favor with fundamentalists to avoid losing power, were aware that funds from Saudi charities were being funneled to al-Qaida.
Aviation attorney Jim Kreindler told PIX11 News: “The charities were alter egos of the Saudi government.” Charities the lawsuit claims fronted for al-Qaida include the Al-Haramain Islamic Foundation, an organization that was designated by the U.S. as a sponsor of terrorism. Kreindler maintains that there was a direct link between all the charities and Osama bin Laden and that they operated with the full knowledge of Saudi officials. He added: “They claim to be allies fighting with U.S. against Iran, while at the same time working with the terrorists. There’s no question they had a hand in the 9/11 attacks.”

The Saudi government is trying to convince America’s new government to suspend the law known as (JASTA). This law has opened the way for legal actions against Riyadh.
