And more.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... spect.html

"Consul General Mohammed al-Otaibi flew out of Turkey yesterday, hours before it was reported that he can be heard on the seven minute audio Jamal Khashoggi allegedly recorded on his smartwatch of his own torture and murder.

Otaibi allegedly tells members of the 'hit squad' - accused of being flown in to murder Khashoggi - that they have to kill the journalist 'outside' the consulate in Istanbul, to which they respond: 'shut up if you want to live'."

I don't know much about the Saudis. I thought the new Sheikh was a young reform-minded guy but this stuff is shades of Saddam.

Sticky situation. Khashoggi was likely much more than just a reporter. He was in deep with a bunch of Middle East nasties. His uncle was the biggest arms dealer in the Middle East and Khashoggi himself was pals with Bin Laden. Khashoggi was also linked very closely with the Muslim Brotherhood who are our enemies as well as enemies of Saudi Arabia. He was initially tight with the Saudis and linked to their intelligence services, but ultimately split from the government over liberalization (he wanted more of it). There are questions surrounding his speedy admittance to the US due to his shady history (Brennan's name has come up).

And then there is foreign policy. Saudi Arabia is our staunch ally in containment of Iran. Turkey meanwhile is closely allied WITH Iran and would love to weaken the US Saudi anti-Iran containment effort, so we cannot fully trust what they tell us.

They would have been better off sending a hit squad here and knocking him off in another "botched robbery" or something to that effect, but it looks like they really did have an "axe to grind"....

The question is who benefits from this ? Not us or the Saudis.

Iran, if this event causes enough friction between the US and Saudi Arabia.

Exactly and it doesn’t hurt the Russians or their Syrian proxies either.
