Mike Kelly has written a piece for NorthJersey.com outlining some of the obstacles 9/11 family members have faced in their quest for truth and justice relating to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The FBI and the CIA have both played a role in keeping information secret that could tie Saudi Arabia to the worst tragedy in American history.
Geoffrey S. Berman, the U.S. Attorney for New York's Southern District, has requested a 5-week extension to turn over documents that attorneys for 9/11 families have requested. This is one more delay, in a string of many, that 9/11 families have endured over the course of this nearly two-decade long lawsuit.
“It’s nauseating,” said Tim Frolich, a 9/11 survivor who was injured as he escaped from the South Tower. “It’s one thing to fight Saudi Arabia. But now we’re fighting our government.”
