9/11 Attacks Hijacker Accuses Saudi Prince For Financing The Operation
“I am ready to testify about all the above and more in your court in an Open Hearing that I request,” - Zacarias MoussaouiZacarias Moussaoui got convicted in 2006 for his admission of participatiom in the 9/11 attacks. Recenty, he wrote a letter saying that he wants to make a stand and testify to the alleged bridges between the terrorists and Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud. Zacarias was also known as the “20th hijacker” said that the prince assisted with his Islamic terrorist activities in Norman The prince also financed Moussaoui’s other expenses such as his own flight classes.
The Associated Press finds his admission incredible while some critics are intrigued and concerned to the allegations made by Moussaoui. The letter is said to be without any connection to current cases being considered in United States federal court.
According to the judge:
“Even if his testimony pertains to acts that occurred at the same time he was taking flight classes in Norman, Oklahoma, there is no reason—at least not one apparent from his complaint — why he must testify in the Western District of Oklahoma. His criminal prosecution took place in the Eastern District of Virginia, and the multi-district civil litigation for personal and commercial damages suffered by the 9/11 victims is pending in the Southern District of New York.”
Carl Tobias, a professor at the University of Richmond School of Law told Daily Mail:
“Even if he somehow got to the point where he could testify, there would be a credibility issue, Would his testimony be valuable? That's doubtful.”
Also earlier this year,Saudi Arabia lawyers insisted in their court filings that the kingdom had no knowledge or any connection to the attack. And even said that Sudi Arabia remains an important ally of the United States.
