A ruling issued today by Manhattan Judge George Daniels insists that Iran is “responsible for 9/11,” and that families of those slain during the 2001 terrorist attack can sue the Iranian government for compensatory and punitive damages.
Daniels’ statement also including claims that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and former Iranian President Rafsanjani both “materially aided and supported” al-Qaeda in carrying out the attack, and continue to do so today.
The ruling is particularly shocking because nobody has ever really seriously claimed that Iran had anything to do with 9/11, and the allegations seem to be based entirely on claims by a few defectors that Iran’s pro-terrorist sentiments led them to somehow establish ties with al-Qaeda.
The allegation is not particularly credible since al-Qaeda has repeatedly targeted Iran for terrorist attacks in the past, and was directly supporting Jundallah, one of the most active anti-Iran terrorist groups, in their operations up to and beyond 9/11.

Manhattan Judge George Daniels just put the judicial stamp on 'barking mad'.
I guess the judge should have studied some history before Law School. In the 90's didn't the Taliban murder nine Iranian diplomats?? Osama would love for all the Iranians to just disappear. The judge would do the tax payer a service by just limiting his judicial expertise to traffic court.
&&&&&&&& DAFFY DUCK WAS THE ONE THAT BOUGHT AND PAID FOR THE BAY OF PIGS AND THE GOLF OF TONKIN… Provications and the subsequent wars that followed…..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You can be sure that Judge Daniels is a Zionist who is using the US system of law to foment anger against the country that Isreal views as its biggest threat. The guy should be fired immediately for using such subversive actions to advance the cause of another country.
Alas the truth finally comes out…it was those wily Iranians that did 9/11! Wouldn't ya know…
How much more of this can our reserved and peace loving government be expected to take? I mean, just because Obama is an accomplished Nobel Peace Laureate doesn't mean he has infinite patience.
First, their scientists throw themselves in front of bullets fired by our agents. Apparently just to make us look bad. Can you imagine that? Then, they have the unmitigated gall to download stuxnet and put it on their computers and controllers, without proper licensing. Then, they brazenly put their missile bases right in the exact same spot where our agents happened to be setting off a bomb. And now we discover this?
Why, they're so diabolical, they convincingly made it seem like Israel and its fanatical partisans did 911 (with help from some traitorous Bush administration insiders, of course).
Moreover, those sneaky Iranians even managed to somehow get NORAD to stand down, and to prevent a real investigation into what actually happened.
And all of this in the pursuit of their selfish agenda of getting themselves attacked. How could they be so eeevil?
hahahahahahaha. That was the sound of the Saudis.
iran is also guilty of making the weather cold and for blocking out the sun between the times of 430 and 7 am….we should bomb them to smithereens for doing this evil stuff against us
On the other hand, this insane judge may have inadvertantly set the stage for some very revealing court room drama if you know what I mean….
Sorry guy's i had some respect left but not much for the America of the last decade. After reading this story I am convinced that you are all completely fucked in the head and don't live on Earth with the rest of us. Please go away and leave Earth alone. I beg all Americans to please go away and leave the world in peace. Its not yours, and no one wants you here. GO AWAY! We don't want your wars anymore. Stop spilling innocent blood.
They also sank the Titanic!
Our troops left Iraq, moved down the street into Kuwait,
Now let's get them out of Afghanistan into next door, Iran.
You've got to be kidding me! Could there possibly be anything crazier? Oops! Sorry. That's reserved for someone in the White House.
Sounds like just another perception management operation to put the next War into the Pocket. Now an attack can be justified by saying "don't you remember that it was found that Iran was involved in 9/11. Remember the dancing Iranians?". Few people will remember that it was Judge Buttf*ck proclaiming random sh*t in a civil proceeding. He could have claimed it was Zeta Reticulans who did it.
I wonder when the dossier of the Pan Am bombing will be reopened and links to Iran pulled out of history's memory hole.
Another fascist circle jerk ends with the fascists getting themselves off…what a surprise.
Sooo sick of the ignorance in this country. Seems like the more "education" these clowns have, the more stupider they are. And not even ashamed to reveal their ignorance to the world.
This judge has a long history of incompetence.
Well, this story certainly brings a ray of hope in an increasingly accessible world: even the mentally retarded (oops, politically incorrect, my bad :), neh? ) can pursue a rewarding career in the judiciary.
im sure the people of Afghanistan and iraq would be laughing really hard at this, if they weren't crying and bleeding so much.
What color is the sky in his world?
You guys are a special kind of wingnut crazy, just looking for conspiracy theories. This was a default judgement, meaning that the reason he ruled in favor of the victim’s families is because the other side didn’t show up. Believe it or not, the Iranian government, Al-Qaeda, and the Taliban did not show up to present evidence that they had nothing to do with 9/11.
Since judges can’t just make up facts on their own, and can only rule on facts presented in the case, he has to issue a default judgement against Iran, Al-Qaeda, and the Taliban. Even if a judge does award a $100 billion judgement against them, will anyone ever collect a dime? None of those three groups give two sh-ts about whats happening here.
The real evil-doer here is the lawyer who is stealing money from the victim’s families by pursuing a bullshit case like this. He should be strung up and debarred.
What a rolling panorama of supervillains. It's like Superman has to fight all of them one after the other. There is no evidence other than what you see on the comic book pages.
Real crimes provoke real investigations, not show trials. When a country built on reason decides to ignore causality and evidence, that nation is going down. The era of faith and force is upon us.
Is this 'judge' named Alfred E. Newman?????…….what an asinine statement!……..Iraq had what???, Afghanistan is being blown to bits for what???………and a man gets a peace prize for destroying how many countries and lives????…….this really is 1984!
Oh, and by the way, I have several condos on the moon for sale with views of the ocean….hahahahaha!
I am laughing so hard at this article it hurts to even think some moron would make such a statement….
If this is what being a judge is, then I should be king!
Israelis arrested in connection to 9/11 = 200+
Muslims arrested for 9/11 = 0
Judge George Daniels is on the CIA/ Mosad’s payroll.
9/11, US and Israel: http://www.amazon.com/America-Deceived-II-Possess…
America and Israel and Britan are the real problem and people like this zionist judge are corrupt.America has been fighting illegal wars baised on lies and fauls flags and this is no different and many have awaken and everyday more do.Americas corrupt government will collapes with the country they intensionaly ruined.Then America can start over with the rule of law being obeyed.
We need to attack Syria, Russia, and China for total world domination. The Judge should have ruled that these countries are all responsible too.
They must have sabotaged our oven cause our christmas goose is over cooked. Will they stop at nothing? i bet they took the fizz out of my beer too. Bloody terrorists
Further delegitimizing teh whole judiciary of the United States. The Sovetization process is taking place quicker than most people thought it would. Oh well at least people in civilized countries will start to recognize the US police state for what it is and we can put to rest all that land of the free propaganda.
the sad part is that there are probably a lot of people sitting in jail because of equally ridiculous rulings by this judges …. and the other farces that sit on the bench because they have political connections.
This is just a money grab of Iranian assets
1. Does this mean that this so-called judge has access to information that constitutes legally defineable evidence and proof that even al-Qaeda — let alone Iran — was involved in 9.11? If so, then he (and somebody else) knows something that the so-called "9.11 Commission" couldn't provide: legally defineable evidence and proof.
2. Has anybody tried to establish the culpability and responsibility of the US government — ie, to sue for damages — for its failure to prevent and, failing that, to then stop the so-called "Terror Event" of 9.11? There is a very strong basis for bringing civil AND criminal charges against those who failed to fulfill their Constitutionally-mandated duty and responsibility to preserve and protect the life, liberty, and property of the American people.
3. Next, no doubt, we will be informed that 60%+ of the American people believe that Iranians were the highjackers (just like 60%+ came to believe that Iraqis were the highjackers in the psy-op buuildup to the Invasion, "Liberation," and Occupation of Iraq).
Committee to Confront, Combat, Defeat, and Destroy The Fourth Reich. (c3d24R)
A civil suit for damages against the the offices of and individuals within the White House, the National Security Council, the CIA, FBI, Department of Defense, FAA, Immigration and Naturalization, and each, every, and all the other offices and agencies and departments whose failures made 9.11 possible, would force a re-examination of the facts and evidence that constitutes the "Official Conspiracy Theory."
It could, would, and should lead to criminal charges against the above named individuals and organizations for, at a minimum, dereliction of duty, and, at a maximum, complicity and thus treason.
This needs to happen before those who benefitted most from 9.11-I determine that they will benefit from another Horror Show. For, when they do, WHO and/or WHAT is going to stop them?

This LIAR proves once again that "Judicial Ethics" is an OXYMORON.
Are ther no depths to which these Prostitutes of the Bench will not plunge?
The AP story about all this contained the curious comment that: " Saudi Arabia had been knocked out of the lawsuit, but lawyers filed papers on Thursday to reinstate Saudi Arabia as a defendant."
There is, of course no explanation at all as to how and why Saudi Arabia was no longer a defendant.
Another very interesting ommission from the suit is Pakistan:
"As to September 11th, federal authorities have told ABC News they have now tracked more than $100,000 from banks in Pakistan, to two banks in Florida, to accounts held by suspected hijack ring leader, Mohammed Atta. As well . . . "Time Magazine" is reporting that some of that money came in the days just before the attack and can be traced directly to people connected to Osama bin Laden. It's all part of what has been a successful FBI effort so far to close in on the hijacker's high commander, the money men, the planners and the mastermind."
Not certain, but I would guess this was a default judgement. The defendant, Iran, ignored the daffy subpoena; the judge automatically awarded the judgement to the plaintiffs. Meaningless legal theatrics? Maybe. Maybe not. If any assets are seized in sanction enforcement the plaintiffs may lay claim to them. The buzzard lawyers are circling a hopeful neocon kill.
Right, so Shia Iran supported Sunni AQ? BS.
AQ is no friend of Iran.
Shameless, but not unexpected. America serves Israel at a high cost to itself. Sadly, the vast majority of Americans are still in a coma.
This is an example of the civilized, First World, developed and highly sophisticated US judicial system.
Judge Moishe Daniels?…
Anybody ever hear of jurisdiction ?
Obviously this wannabee judge never did, LOL.
Why didn't they tell us before now?
One has to wonder as to how far up his own -ss this so called judge had to crawl to dig up this priceless gem of information.
This just shows you can take the redneck out of the mountains, but you'll never get rid of the redneck. This man should not be a judge; or, perhaps, he is simply indicative of the general ignorance of those responsible for American justice.
Either way, if I were American, I'd be embarrassed, disgusted and ashamed.
Does this ***** have any evidence for this idiotic decision?
God save America because they lack the competence to save themselves.
