Afghan Central Bank Funds Belong to Afghans, Not 9/11 Families

PT member, Barry Amundson, shares Peaceful Tomorrows position on President Biden’s intention to split the  $7 billion in Afghan central bank funds in half, reserving $3.5 billion for 9/11 family lawsuits.

…not all relatives of the Sept. 11 victims agree. This week, Barry Amundson, whose brother Craig
was killed in the Pentagon that day, said his group — September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows — thought all of the money should go to benefit Afghans. –
“I can’t think of a worse betrayal of the people of Afghanistan than to freeze their assets
and give it to 9/11 families,” Mr. Amundson said.
“While 9/11 families are seeking justice for their loss through these suits,
I fear that the end result of seizing this money will be to cause further harm
to innocent Afghans who have already suffered greatly.”
