The families of the victims of 9/11 will finally get their day in court.

800 families have signed on to a lawsuit that alleges Saudi Arabia was complicit in the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001. After over a decade, classified portions of the official 9/11 Commission Report were revealed that suggest Saudi officials were complicit in the attacks.

Documents allege that Saudi officials supported two of those hijackers, Salem al-Hazmi and Khalid Al-Mihdhar, for over a year prior to 9/11, as well as having provided support to lead hijacker Mohammed Atta.


In a stunning lawsuit seeking to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for 9/11, the families of 800 victims have filed a lawsuit accusing the Saudis of complicity in the worst terror attacks on American soil.

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.

Fifteen of the 19 hijackers were Saudi nationals and three of them had previously worked for the kingdom.

The document details how officials from Saudi embassies supported hijackers Salem al-Hazmi and Khalid Al-Mihdhar 18 months before 9/11.

The Obama administration fought tooth and nail to prevent the 9/11 families from being able to sue Saudi Arabia for the terrorist attacks, vetoing the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act in September.
