You may recall WhoWhatWhy’s recent investigationof apparent connections between Saudi royalty and the alleged 9/11 hijackers. In it, we mentioned that the insurance giant Lloyd’s of London had sued powerful Saudi interests, alleging culpability for the 2001 attacks–then abruptly withdrew its suit.Lloyd’s didn’t provide a proper explanation of what had prompted it to withdraw the suit, though, presumably, there’s some behind-the-scenes interaction with those named, perhaps even a settlement. That leaves the rest of us in the dark.Good news, though: WhoWhatWhy is now making available that here-and-gone legal filing.The text of Lloyds’ lengthy original court filing may be found here. And we’ll be back soon with our own commentary—pointing you to the most significant nuggets.

I'm Kali Holloway and I'm Digging for Stories Where the Corporate Media Doesn't Go
Hi AlterNet Readers,
I’m Kali, AlterNet investigative reporter. Trolls have made stalking, harassment and intimidation an everyday hazard of going online. I’ve spent weeks in the troll cesspools to understand how they operate and why.
Trolls target women, people of color, LGBT folks, Jews and Muslims. And they love Donald Trump.
Trump’s racism, misogyny and hatred has united neo-Nazis and women-haters with the goal of getting him elected and spreading their toxic ideas.
With backing from supporters like you, I have the freedom to go deep into dark topics like this one -- and expose things we all should know.
We need to raise $15,000 in the next two weeks to hit our goal and continue this necessary work, both mine and the rest of our team.
