    "A New York City judge awarded $6 billion to the families of Sept. 11, 2001, terror attack victims in their lawsuit against al-Qaida and parties in Iran.

    U.S. Magistrate Frank Maas' Monday ruling was the first to impose civil penalties against those responsible for the 2001 terror plot that killed nearly 3,000 people, the New York Daily News reported.

    The $6 billion would be paid out to 110 survivors and the estates of 47 victims, including Victor Saracini, who was the captain of United Airlines Flight 175, which struck the south tower of the World Trade Center".

    And yet to date there has not been a lawsuit launched against the CIA, Pakistan’s ISI, or the Saudis.
