Happy Veterans Day! This is what our veterans do. When they aren’t on the battlefield, they are still in the fight at home and abroad. In a The plaintiffs have argued, “Defendants’ unlawful conduct was purposefully directed at the United States, and the conspiracy was specifically designed to effectuate the flow of billions of U.S. dollars through the United States in violation of U.S. laws, and in fact resulted in hundreds of billions of dollars illegally passing through the United States.”
The lawsuit details a variety of Islamic terror attacks in Iraq between 2004 and 2007, which were financed by Iran. These attacks resulted in either injury or death to those listed in the complaint or their family members. Seventy Islamic attacks resulting in injuries or deaths are listed in the complaint.
The financing, according to the suit, came from the named banks and thus claims that they were complicit in the attacks and claims that the banks were “knowingly” a part of Iran’s attempts to make an end run around sanctions of the international community.
Adam Kredo reports at the Washington Free Beacon:
The banks “agreed to alter, falsify, or omit information from payment messages that involved Iran or Iranian parties,” including Iranian banks, the lawsuit claims. “Each of the defendants knowingly entered into an agreement with Iran and its agents.”
The banks engaged in this behavior for “the express purpose of concealing” Iran and its financial institutions from scrutiny by U.S. authorities, according to the suit.
This activity began around 1987 and “continues to the present,” despite ongoing sanctions against Iran, the suit alleges.
In September, terrorism victims won a landmark case against Arab Bank.
It has been previously reported, the case has been made that Iran was involved in the 9/11 attacks, alongside Saudi Arabia. Yet, we have continued to do business with the Saudis while placing sanctions on Iran. Additionally, our own government knows that there are illegal Iranians in the United States working for defense contractors and they do nothing to remove them. Meanwhile, the federal government treats its people like children by withholding 28 pages of the 9/11 report from public scrutiny.
