Judge fines Iran for 9/11Al-Qaeda, the Taliban and Iran should pay $US6 billion ($A5.75 billion) to relatives of September 11 victims for aiding in the 2001 terror attacks, a US judge has recommended in a largely symbolic decision.

Even though it will be nearly impossible to collect damages, plaintiff Ellen Saracini, whose husband, Victor, was the captain of one of the planes that struck the World Trade Centre, told the Daily News that she is happy about Manhattan Federal Magistrate Judge Frank Maas’ recommendation.

“It’s hard being happy, but I am happy about it,” said Saracini. “But it opens up old wounds. We were never in it for a lawsuit. I wanted to know what happened to my husband.”

Last year, Judge George Daniels signed a default judgment on the lawsuit brought by relatives of 47 victims. He found al-Qaeda, the Taliban and Iran liable and asked the magistrate to determine damages.

Maas’ ruling on Monday is a recommendation to Daniels, who can accept it or amend it. Maas calculated punitive and compensatory damages for each of the plaintiffs and their lost family members.

TVNL Comment:  Another myth.  Another set  up.  Another foundation set for attacking Iran. Wait and see.
