It has been more than 16 years since 2001 and the families of victims are still pushing to try and sue Saudi Arabia in court. This time, though, it appears they have managed to scrape up a little more evidence, this time linking money from the Saudi Embassy in Washington, D. C. to a "dry run" of 9-11 which was apparently carried out back in 1999.

Recall that 15 of the 19 hijackers, including the ringleader, were all Saudi nationals.


So you're bin Ladin, and you plan to do something really spectacular in the US. Do you recruit a bunch of Germans to do this, or some Brits? Or do you find some people who think similarly to you, people who are also Arab, preferably Saudi's.

Doubt it will ever happen...too many potential doors it could open in terms of precedent...

Not to mention that the US would not want to be sued or specifically drawn into cases of being sued. We would never get anything else done!

I understand that some of the 9--11 families probably still haven't attained closure but I agree--if they manage to sue Saudi Arabia that will set a precedent which could open up the United States Federal Government for similar lawsuits. Given the "mostly an ally" status we have towards SA I highly doubt any sort of lawsuit will ever actually occur.
