OK fine. But anyone can sue, and if they win, collecting is another story.
More like a waste of time and court costs.
True enough. Sad, but still funny. Just the thought of suing a terrorist organization? I mean doesn't that open up the option of the U.S. Government suing the Drug Cartels for distributing drugs in America due to the fact drugs are illegal?
Some people just do not have a sense of humor or understand political maneuvering. If they win the law suit, which they will in absentee, they can then attach anything from Al-Quada like seized funds from illegal fundraising. If I recall, the government seized like 150 million dollars from a group in Texas. So while funny it has interesting merits.
Oh I don't know - if they can ever isolate any money or materials in the US destined for al qaeda they can get it through the courts. Unlikely, but it IS another (small) weapon to be used.
I thought I had heard everything.
But I guess not.
Does this mean that all the people in Afghanistan and Iraq can sue the US goverment?
Sadly there are definate money trails even leading out of the U.S. and into terrorist supporting entities. I don't see why these monies can't be frozen for lawsuits! Even terrorist organizations have legitimate bussiness fronts , government support , churches and mosques ! Why not sue them!
Insurance companies are often legally obliged to try and recover costs from the offender. And what that has to do with taxpayer money.... I have no idea.

Sometimes I read a ludicrous headline and I give my head a shake and then just get on with the business of living my life - at other times I need to "spill". This headline is one of those times - BP is going to pay for the cleanup? This is one of those catastrophes (man made)...
