History is replete with examples of those in positions of influence and power having made miscalculations that caused extensive suffering, loss and death. What may end up becoming the single worst miscalculation in the entire history of Western civilization, however – which may lead directly to World War III, cost the lives of hundreds of millions of people, and render large parts of the Earth uninhabitable – occurred less than three years ago, yet practically no one knows anything about it.
The miscalculation: to shield the American people from the fact that in late 2011, after a seven year trial, a U.S. federal court determined:
(1) That Iran provided vital assistance to Al Qaeda in perpetrating the 9/11 attacks
(2) That Iran’s current “supreme leader,” Ayatollah Khamenei, had been providing material support to Al Qaeda for ten years prior to the 9/11 attacks, and has continued to do so, ever since
Had the American people known these facts, they would have known that by cutting the nuclear “deal” with Iran’s leaders – which involved our releasing $150 billion in cash to them, and provide a pathway to nuclear weapons and the ballistic missiles with which to deliver them – our leaders were effectively giving these values to Al Qaeda’s partner in the 9/11 attacks, and all the other attacks that they’ve perpetrated against America for more than twenty years.
Did you know any of these facts? If not, you are far from alone. The overwhelming
If you don’t know these things (or doubt they are true), you’re not alone.
The vast majority of Americans have absolutely no idea that Iran played any role in the 9/11 attacks, and know nothing about the mountain of evidence that the court reviewed, to come to this conclusion. They don’t know that as a result, the court levied a $7 billion judgment against Iran, to compensate the surviving family members for its role in the 9/11 attacks. Nor do they know that after Iran refused to pay, the court seized and sold a $500 million office building it owned in New York, and gave the proceeds to the victorious plaintiffs.
At this point, you may be asking, “Why would the most influential American activist groups, elected politicians and practically our entire news industry not inform us of these essential facts, before we even considered cutting a “deal” with the Iranian terror regime?” Great question.
The purpose of this special SaveTheWest investigative report is:
- To provide the general public with the verifiable facts about Iran’s role in the 9/11 attacks, and its long history of anti-American terrorism.
- To reveal the results of our research to learn why those who were most responsible for educating the American people on the vital issues concerning the prospect of a “deal” with Iran, starting in 2013, did not do so.
- To explain why the decision to not inform us of these facts may well prove to be the worst miscalculation in the entire history of Western civilization, and one could end up costing the lives of hundreds of millions of people.

SaveTheWest also reached out to experts who can help put the public’s lack of awareness of Iran’s role in the 9/11 attacks, and its history of collusion with Al Qaeda, into context. A sampling of what
Tim Fleming: An attorney with the Wiggins Childs Pantazis Fisher & Goldfarb law firm, Fleming spent the better part of ten years investigating Iran’s history of involvement in terrorism, its collusion with Al Qaeda for the 9/11 attacks, and presenting the plaintiffs’ case in the trial. Fleming says that the facts that emerged in the trial, and the judge’s ruling, constitute “the most under-reported story in America.” Further, he said, “[QUOTE].”

Ilana Freedman: American-Israeli intelligence analyst, blogger at The Freedman Report:
All we’ve been told, over and over, ad nauseaum, is that Iran is a bad country, that it is involved in certain kinds of terrorism, and that it should not be allowed to build or acquire nuclear weapons. 99.9% of the public discussion has focused on the technical and political aspects of the “deal” that we were told would prevent Iran from having such weapons.
The fact, though, is that

[The lawsuit: Havlish v. Bin Laden, et al]
“Our goal is simple,” said Fiona Havlish, whose husband, Donald G. Havlish Jr., was killed when a hijacked airliner crashed into the south tower of the trade center. “We want to prevent all those responsible for our losses from ever inflicting such pain on others. […] “We seek to deprive them of the financial means to ever commit such acts again. This is not a lawsuit about financial recovery. It is a lawsuit about financial deprivation. I will do whatever I can to bankrupt all terrorists, those that harbor terrorists and those that help terrorists.”
Why this may well end up being looked back upon as the worst miscalculation in the history of Western civilization

The key reasons to conduct this search were to determine which major Western news organizations covered Havlish v. Bin Laden, et al suit, the judgment, etc., and where the stories appeared in printed newspapers and magazines (on the cover, eg A1? Or buried, on A10, or D1?). All of the following bibliography is based on what you can see in these PDFs; in summary, this shocking discovery, that Iran played a material, ongoing role in supporting Al Qaeda, including specifically for the 9/11 attacks, was all but buried from the view of the American citizen.

Influential figures in Western nations have made some egregiously bad miscalculations in the past several hundred years, that have cost the lives of hundreds of thousands, or millions of people, and caused untold personal and cultural suffering.
Those miscalculations, however, may end up being eclipsed many times over, by a decision made in 2012, by a group of highly influential American civic activists, elected politicians and practically our entire “news” media made, independent of one another, that may well prove to be the worst miscalculation in the entire history of Western civilization, and may end up costing the lives of hundreds of millions of people. And practically no one even knows about it.
The purpose of this essay is to alert you to this miscalculation, and arm you with the verifiable facts, so perhaps we, as freedom-loving American citizens, can begin to mitigate the damage from this miscalculation, before it’s too late.
Two of the worst previous miscalculations by influential Western figures
The following are two examples of miscalculations that caused massive suffering, destruction and death:
- In 1786, Thomas Jefferson lamented that a bill he authored several years earlier, to begin outlawing slavery in the young American colonies failed to pass, due to a lack of one vote: “The voice of a single individual would have prevented this abominable crime; heaven will not always be silent; the friends to the rights of human nature will in the end prevail.” Thus, black Africans were subjected to another seventy years of institutional slavery in America, and decades more of systemic discrimination in the Southern states – and more than 600,000 were lost in the American Civil War.
- In 1938, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain famously declared that he had achieved “Peace in our time,” by avoiding a second world war with Germany, thanks to a document that the German fascist dictator Adolf Hitler signed, agreeing to not invade any more countries if Europe sacrificed Czechoslovakia to him. Keep in mind that under the Versailles Treaty, Germany was prohibited from re-arming on an offensive scale – yet for more than ten years, right under Europe’s nose, Hitler was building the biggest war machine the world had ever seen. Chamberlain’s (and Europe’s) miscalculation cost the lives of an estimated 85 million people, and turned much of Europe into a wasteland, after Hitler unleashed his war machine, and sought to fulfill his vision of exterminating Jews (he succeeded in murdering one-third of all the Jews in the world).
Atop this foundation of examples, we are now prepared to appreciate a miscalculation made in 2012 by influential figures in America that may prove to make those look miniscule, in comparison.
