First off why is this crap hole still allowed to operate as a country ?

Immediately after 9/11 all Saudi assets in us should have been seized. Their diplomats should have been arrested and locked up as enemies of the state and we should have sent a tomahawk missile with a nuclear warhead to made a to send a message to Riyadh that they were poking the wrong bear. Yes it's sad this journalist got disappeared but really the Bush admin and Obama admin got us in this situation by going after Iraq and Afghanistan instead of real turds the saudis.

Because US business makes lots of money from their purchases. Certain companies profits are worth more than a man's life.

Meaning it's OK to kill the press or a man just because it benefits a country's leaders? Any wonder the world is screwed up.

Anytime a journalist is killed by a government because of the words they write it should be a cause for alarm. In this specific case the victim was a permanent US resident and employed by a US newspaper. So of course the US is going to take notice of it.

Exactly. You say ridiculous OP. I’m thinking repugnant is the term used to evaluate this whole thing equitably...

The more our leaders work to convince people the news is ALL lies or fake, the easier it will be to kill members of the press and have people over look the action.

Not something to be taken lightly.

Then they should work doubly hard to stop reporting fake news.

Yet we have more fake news stories every day.

(Facepalm)
He was a journalist for a major US publication, a resident in the USA, and also a dissident Saudi Arabian who wasn't afraid to point out the fact that the Saudi Government's hands were rather dirty when it came to basic human rights. And somehow that meant that the Saudi Government thought that the best way to deal with him was to lure him into a Consulate on non-SA soil, drug him, torture him and then (allegedly) dismember him when he was still alive.
Yes, that all makes him rather significant to say the least.

Well ummm they strongly deny that is was murder you know and ummm they are really good people really really good guys and they said it was an accident. (But cannot now produce a body because well they fed him to some fish somewhere in bits and pieces. How else can you explain the need for new carpets and new paint and even some new bricks.)
But you know they are innocent until proven guilty so you never know.... you never know how these things are going to go.

Only ignorance makes a person believe every part of the press is a lie which is what some people push.

That's in their countr,y but this was not in their country and the victim was a journalist working for an American publication and that changes everything. We cannot allow this kind of behavior to go unaddressed. The safety of American journalists all over the world would be diminished.
We can't have that.

lol.

I wonder if some think more of the press then a politician. The US has dealt out plenty of damage to that part of the world.

Guess they will pretend this never happens......



At least 81 reporters were killed doing their jobs in 2017, as harassment and attacks on journalists have been on the rise, according to the International Federation of Journalists.




The country where the largest number of journalists were killed was Mexico, followed by Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.

Mexico.....imagine that.....
but none of these rise to the level commanding dem outrage.....wonder why???
