According to Associated Press a lawsuit brought by insurance giant Lloyd's against Saudi Arabia has been withdrawn just days after it was filed. A lawyer representing Lloyd's in the case, Stephen Cozen of law firm Cozen O'Connor, refused to comment on the sudden dismissal. - JPS/RSN your social media marketing partner


A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

interesting that this was all over the internet back in 2001, and then mysteriously "disappeared" - like the lawsuit filed by Lloyd's I guess -
so now folks who mention this info are called "conspiracy theorists" - well, yes, indeed, that is what it is called when it is a conspiracy and the truth.
no fooling Bush read a book in a classroom and tried to look dumb.

Again, no surprises. What most expected. That's why we've been so disappointed with the official "investigation. "

I have often wondered about the explosive loaded van stopped before it could enter the Lincoln Tunnel as reported on the nightly news on 9/11. We need to organize a Citizens Investigating committee. I have also read that 60 foreign nationals were detained and then released; and people claim that there was a film crew setup on the Jersey shore waiting for the event. why was the site withdrawn?

After 10 years the Saudis get accused of financing the alleged terrorists even though many of the named terrorists have been found to be alive.
When will we learn why the 5 Mossad agents that were arrested on 9/11 for filming the fall of the towers while celebrating were released without any explanation for their actions?
Is blaming the Saudis designed to take the heat off Israel as they get ready to put the screws to the Palestinians once more?

... and the Bush family was reportedly close to the Saudi Royal family... does the plot thicken? and which company benefited from all the wars? could that be Haliburton? has the U.S. been taken to the provebial cleaners? seems so...

You mean taken to the cleaners again, don't you?

Too many dots to connect. This in itself is near proof that there are cover ups for the cover ups.
For anyone out there(and this is sometimes utilized as cover with the help of main stream news)who thinks that the CIA is incompetent-thi nk again. They are super competent. Possibly the most diabolical outfit in the world.

They have levels of cover ups and patsies for the patsies. They are expert assassins-and of a grand scale.
Of course they use foreign nationals. They are the perfect "lone gunmen" if you will. Were the Saudis involved? Of course-but they were not pulling the strings. There is only one "puppet master" in this world.

What's happening to this COMMENTS Section? There are only FOUR showing but the top of print page says 42 comments which seems likely since there were about 30 several hours ago and I cannot find my own post which refuted several key issues in this highly questionable piece of propaganda. seeking to put blame now after 10 yrs on the Saudis
+2 # John Talbutt 2011-09-23 23:06
Initially the piece did did not include the fact the suit had been withdrawn. I am assuming that all the comments that referred to that fact are among those now missing. I know of some that are.

Of course the suit was "settled out of court". Those bastards can buy their way out of just about anything but the guilt is still theirs.

Somebody must be feeling a little heat to try a red herring like this. Who exactly of the myriad interests that constute Lloyds are the dismissed/withd rawn accusers? Filing a lawsuit is usually a somewhat laborious process and one like this, especially so. Dismissed in days? Hardly seems lawsuit worthy so what is the purpose? Could someone be preying on Lloyds good name by tagging it onto lies? I hope someone with Lloyds reputation in mind makes some explanation of this accusation and its motive and result. Otherwise the story is crap. And so is the name of Lloyds.
+7 # Glen 2011-09-24 06:22
Good question, William. The amount of maze-like actions taken by all concerned in the attack on New York, most especially the U.S. government, would lead anyone to the conclusions you have drawn. On the other hand, if Lloyds was commissioned to do this, they may have had their hands slapped by that same U.S. government.

Perhaps we will learn what happened. Probably not.
+12 # jsgammato 2011-09-24 07:43
Looks like a quick, quiet, lucrative settlement to me. The saudis, unwilling to see the matter brought up in court and in the headlines, opt to quietly pay up a gazillion dollars to settle the suit with Lloyd's. Lloyd's agrees and abandons the suit, which is dismissed.
+5 # John Talbutt 2011-09-23 23:04
Was it dismissed or withdrawn? My guess is there was some sort of under the table settlement. It is possible that a settlement to Lloyds' could be made on the condition that when counsel for the Saudi's made a motion to dismiss it was not challenged by Lloyds. My guess anyway.
+8 # Abigail 2011-09-24 08:49
Around that time the US was engaged in building a radar system for the Saudis. A very expensive and expansive system. A lot of money for the US suppliers.

Yesterday Palestinians bid for state at UN is MUCH more significant - than 10 year old worn and wrong conspiracy theories.

So is Baker the last one to know this? I think it was a commonly held belief that the Saudi royals were involved all the way up to their fat wallets and the only reason our media didn't play it up back then was because the Bush family had an incestuous relationship with the Saudis. This article is too little, too late. Pres. Obama has avoided doing what's been needed, and that is to expose the falsehoods of the Bushies and their cronies. Maybe now he'll grow a set and do what needs to be done!
