One Third of Brits Blame Saudi Arabia for 9/11: YouGov Poll
Fri Sep 30, 2016 19:51:59

A new YouGov poll has found that more than 1/3 of Brits believe that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is responsible for the 9/11 terror attacks.

This month was the 15 anniversary of the shock terror attack on the US that changed the world forever.

For the families of the victims, their fight for the truth and for some sense of justice is still ongoing. Many have been lobbying US politicians for years to allow them to legally challenge those who they think bear some responsibility for the nearly 3,000 deaths: namely, the Saudi authorities.

An independent panel completed the 9/11 Commission Report a year after the attacks, which found that there was "no top Saudi link." However, it was not enough to reassure some families who remain suspicious of a certain degree of Saudi involvement, even if not at the highest levels of government. 15 of the 19 hijackers, who seized passenger jets and crashed them into US landmarks, were Saudi citizens. A YouGov poll released on Thursday, found that 38% of British people agree that Saudi Arabia is at least slightly responsible for 9/11; Sputnik reported.
