Lawsuit alleges Iranian complicity in 9/11 attacks

Iranian officials knew in advance about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and was involved in the planning, according to the testimony of two defectors from the Islamic regime’s intelligence service in a federal lawsuit, ‘The New York Times’ reported. According to a court filing Thursday cited by the newspaper, the suit is seeking damages for Iran’s “direct support for, and sponsorship of, the most deadly act of terrorism in American history.” One of the defectors claims that Iran and Hezbollah, the radical militant group in Lebanon, played a role in plotting the attacks, orchestrating the hijackers’ training and travel and helped Al Qaeda operatives escape after the attack, providing some with refuge in Iran.
