Evil Joke: Iran Told to Pay $10.5 Billion to 9/11 Kin, Insurers

US courts even crazier than truther trolls and their magic space ray guns

Iran was ordered by a New York City judge to pay more than $10.5 billion in damages to the families of those killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Bloomberg reported.

US District Judge George Daniels ruled on Wednesday that Tehran must pay $7.5 billion to the families of people who died at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Daniels also awarded $3 billion to a group of insurers that paid property damage, business interruption and other claims.The judge said that Iran had provided active support to the terrorists who killed almost 3,000 people in three terrorist attacks in New York, Washington and in Pennsylvania.

He also found that Iran had failed to defend claims that it aided the September 11 hijackers and was therefore liable for damages tied to the attacks.

But how about the “innocent until proven guilty” principle? Moreover, Iran never participated in any court hearings regarding the tragic events of that fateful day in September 2001.

Hossein Sheikholeslam, a senior aide to Iran’s parliamentary speaker outlined Tehran’s position on the issue in an interview with Sputnik Persian.

“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. 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,” Hossein Sheikholeslam said.

The investigation was partly secret but, judging by what was made public, the main suspect was Saudi Arabia, not Iran since all the masterminds were either Saudi nationals or lived and studied in Saudi Arabia, he added.

“All this looks like another evil joke by the Americans,” Hossein Sheikholeslam said in conclusion.

Iran Press Editor-in-Chief  Emad Abshenas, dismissed the ruling as arguably the most stupid and ludicrous in  the history of US courts.

“The people who committed those terrorist attacks were  neither friends nor allies of Iran. They were our sworn enemies, members of al-Qaeda, which considers Iran as their enemy. Fifteen out of the 19 terrorists were Saudi citizens, which happens to be America’s best friend. The remaining four terrorists lived in Saudi Arabia and enjoyed Saudi support. Therefore the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks had nothing to do with Iran,” Emad Abshenas emphasized.

    Well this could actually be a good thing. It bring someone to actually come out with the real 9-11 information. It’s probably time for a Snowden size data dump with satellite imagery, radiation signatures and the names of the heads of each contributing department of every aiding agency and every individual, corporation or nation that benefited directly or indirectly. That alone would be a huge transfer of power. One that has never been more necessary in our country and throughout the world. The frog is simmering.

    The photo of Building 6 says it all. Two craters are clearly visible — a large one directly in the centre of the larger mass of Building 6 and a smaller crater sized perfectly for the smaller bit to the side. Both craters are clean inside and a debris field is scattered in a circular pattern outside. This building was very clearly blown up and out using two very powerful explosive devices, which were perfectly sized for the job. It was very clearly not destroyed by a sideways blast coming from the collapsing WTC1&2 towers.

    Aerial images of WTC6 can be found on Google Images for anyone who would like to look at these craters more closely on their own.

    Quite how the Arabs with box cutters placed two little nukes in this building as they slammed into the Twin Towers would be interesting reading. And if they didn’t blow up Building 6 (or 7), then the whole theory falls apart.

    The only piece I find confusing is that these images have been on the Internet for a decade and a half and everyone hasn’t seen them.

      You can see the box cutters if you zoom in real good!!!!

      Peter, I don’t know how long the above photo has been on the internet. It is new to me, so I am reasonably sure that it wasn’t available in the first year or so after 9/11. I say that because I looked at a LOT of photos of the buildings that first year. My husband and I had heated arguments about how WTC 1, 2, and 7 came down, and I really wanted to win that argument. I said 2 types of controlled demolition, based on the videos and photos: a conventional one for WTC 7, and a strange type for the Twin towers. Hubby stuck to the official story, sad to say. But after the first year, I tuned out of 9/11. I was basically just sick of the gov’t lies, foreign gov’t lies, and sick of the 9/11 groups too. It got crazy, too many agendas out there, with too few of them actually dedicated to the truth.
      So yes, this photo is new to me. I would be interested in knowing when this photo first appeared on the internet, and where.

  4. Poppadop  March 10, 2016 at 5:20 pm

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump will finally tell the American people who did 9/11: Iran.

    I admit: I LOL’d at that.

  5. Worker Bee  March 10, 2016 at 5:14 pm

    By this standard, how much does the US owe Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, etc, etc, etc?

    “By that measure, I wonder how the author of this article can be so sure that energy beam weapons are nothing but magic. There is no reason why energy beam weapons do not exist.”

    Energy beam weapons of various types do exist. However, the hypothesis that they were used to destroy the WTC complex is even more far-fetched than it being done with box-cutters and burning kerosene.

    The Zionist zealots will never give over pushing the Israel vendetta against Iran. This pitiful effort will fall flat like Building Seven on that infamous day and Judge Daniels reputation will likewise plummet – saved from oblivion for being a clown and court jester. How dare you insult the families of the dead!

    Daniels was nominated to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York by Bill Clinton on August 5, 1999 on the recommendation of U.S. Senators Daniel Patrick Moynihan and … Chuck Schumer.

    “You know, my name comes from the word shomer: guardian, watcher,” Senator Chuck Schumer told the host of a Jewish radio program in 2010. “My ancestors were guardians of the ghetto wall in Chortkov. .. One of my roles, very important in the United States Senate, is to be a shomer, to be the shomer Yisrael”—the guardian of Israel—“and I will continue to be that with every bone in my body.”

    Your appointee just made an ass of himself Mr. Shumer by this piece de resistance from the theater of the absurd and heaped even more ridicule – if that is possible, on the already farcical cover-up of the facts dealing with the murders of 3,000 New Yorkers and thousands of others who died of causes directly tied to the slaughter , many of whom were your constituents.

      Bloomberg Business has the article.

    • LC  March 11, 2016 at 6:36 pm

      SO WHAT???? Where is court’s order????

  9. gogh  March 10, 2016 at 11:35 am

    The US legal system is a joke indeed and this judge is not ashamed to act accordingly.
    what is even more strange is that even countries like Iran and Russia do not dare touch the subject of who did it. Extrapolate this to other issues and you can seriously doubt if there is any level of reality that can be known.
    By that measure, I wonder how the author of this article can be so sure that energy beam weapons are nothing but magic. There is no reason why energy beam weapons do not exist. Keep on ridiculing others like people ridicule you (VT) for believing 9-11 is an inside job. By this measure, the simple fact that something in this domain is ridiculed is enough to seriously consider something as possible.

    • Poppadop  March 10, 2016 at 5:26 pm

      “… countries like Iran and Russia do not dare touch the subject of who did it.

      RT had a whole special showing how 9/11 had to have been an inside job. You haven’t seen it yet?
      youtube.com/watch?v=OSaINPTmEgw

    • Poppadop  March 11, 2016 at 2:54 pm

      The RT special also draws connections with Operation Gladio and the CIA’s creation of Al-Qaeda, as well as the fact that WTC 1, 2, and 7 could only collapse as they did via controlled demolition. This is enough to show that 9/11 has to be much bigger, older, and more sophisticated than the “President who was reading ‘my pet goat.'”

  10. RussG1  March 10, 2016 at 10:49 am

    Sure makes a joke out of the US Court system.

  11. Garry Compton  March 10, 2016 at 9:51 am

    After hearing this one — they better re-open the 9-11 investigation. But with only indepenedent pilots, demolition pros, architects and enginneers doing the work.

  12. wjabbe  March 10, 2016 at 9:30 am

    “I think Islam hates us”. Quote from Trump on AOL. Trump is one of them. He likely testified at this secret trial in corrupt New York. Anything to get a little more easy money. Don’t expect any prosecutions of the perps by Trump.

  13. Howie  March 10, 2016 at 9:23 am

    And as for the $10.5 billion in damages, the amount of compensation paid to the families of the Iran Air Flight 655 shoot-down by the USS Vincennes was a fraction of that.

    I guess the U.S judicial system states that the lives of U.S citizens are worth a hell of a lot more than the lives of Iranian citizens.

    Absolutely disgusting !.

  14. Howie  March 10, 2016 at 9:02 am

    Did i miss something, or is this US District Judge George Daniels just batshlt crazy ?.

    Iran actually provided intelligence support(and more) to the U.S in the aftermath of the incredible(or uncredible) 2001 World Trade Center demolitions, and no credible source has ever accused Iran of any involvement.

    Jewikipedia ; “Sep 30, 2015 – U.S. district judge George Daniels in Manhattan on Tuesday dismissed claims against Saudi Arabia by families of victims of the 9/11 attacks”.

    “another evil joke by the Americans” as stated by Hossein Sheikholeslam, sums it up nicely, i would love to see this a’holes bank statements, and i mean the the Swiss ones !.

    Where are the tar-and-feather mobs when they’re needed ?.

  15. Bollantree  March 10, 2016 at 9:01 am

    That is an amazing picture of 9/11 I’ve never seen before. What building was that? If that was one of the main WTC buildings, it’s pretty strong evidence to convince the doubters that there was a bomb under those buildings.

    • NotAVeteran2  March 10, 2016 at 9:25 am

      The columns at the bottom do look like the ones on the main buildings (from memory, should be easy to make sure using google, but I am even lazier than you are).

      If it WAS one of the main buildings, where did all the building material go?
      Did the WTC have 50 floors underground?
      Also compare the type of damage you see here with images of the Oklahoma bombing, especially note the way ‘things droop down’.

    • Bollantree  March 10, 2016 at 1:17 pm

      I had assumed this is not in ‘normal’ sources but yes it’s in Wikipaedia with the legend:
      “Portions of the outer shell of the North Tower lean against the remains of 6 WTC which suffered massive damage when the North Tower collapsed. The remains of 7 WTC are at upper right”. So this is not the remains of towers 1 or 2. Was such a relatively small building deserving a nuke?

    • JS  March 10, 2016 at 4:54 pm

      Bollantree, that is indeed one of the main towers on the left, as they had the very distinctive steel design outside. North Tower = WTC 1, and South Tower = WTC 2.

    • JS  March 10, 2016 at 4:56 pm

      Sorry, I meant to say that’s one of the main towers, in the MIDDLE of the photo.
