The Supreme Court has ruled that the four Saudi princes and Saudi government as a whole cannot be sued by the families of those killed in 9/11 because foreign governments can’t be sued. The suit claimed that Saudi officials funded terrorists, including Al-Qaeda, through charities. Although the 9/11 Commission concluded that they “found no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded the organization,” it can be argued that they funded charities knowing they were spreading radical Islam and helping terrorists as a whole, which benefited Al-Qaeda even if the Saudi officials weren’t directly transferring money to them.
