I don't have a source yet but it was apparently announced on Saudi state TV. The king has ordered an investigation that is to be completed in one month's time.

They've also relieved a general of his position, presumably for his involvement.

I'll return shortly with a source.

ETA:

Details are coming out quickly here. Looks like 18 Saudis have been detained and there were 4-5 other high level dismissals. There's apparently something to this story involving a fist fight.

His surname resonated with me due it it being the same as the largest individual arms dealer on the planet back in the 80s & 90's - Adnan Khashoggi.

So I decided to take a look and see if they are biologically related, and well, wadda ya know...



Adnan Khashoggi - Wikipedia

I think we're pretty deep in global intel-agency subterfuge here. This has Mossad all over it.

I'm perfectly content with their explanation as well. I still suspect that Turkish has their own agents embedded in there and that some double agent has been paid hansomely in an undisclosed bank account to make this entire fiasco possible. So can we start overthrowing erdogan now?? I'm ready for some good global reshifting of alliances anyways. It builds character.

I just can't, for the life of me, find it in my heart to trust the Saudis, y'know?

Maybe they are considered allies, but something is just "off" about them.

This whole Khashoggi mess stinks to high Heaven, as well.

Adnan Khashoggi (Arabic: عدنان خاشقجي‎; 25 July 1935 – 6 June 2017) was a Saudi Arabian businessman and arms dealer, known for his lavish business deals and lifestyle. He is estimated to have had a peak net worth of around US$4 billion in the early 1980s.


Arms dealer and billionaire.

Interesting

Maybe it’s the turban and dresses from medivial times they still wear. Or the fact they are on the UN board of human rights, while they still cut off hands and behead people? Or the treatment of women? Yea, not a friendly bunch to associate with. The only things not from the Stone Age there are military weapons and fancy buildings.

Obviously he accidentally dismembered himself in the chaos. Must've fallen into one of those racks of razor sharp swords the Saudis keep around.

How many people has U.S. intelligence assassinated? I mean what is it with this guy that makes him such a big deal? This happens everyday and nearly every country you just don't hear about it unless their is a political agenda to be pushed. I am not buying into the outrage when this is more the norm than the exception.

Nothing really.

He got caught between the powers that be.

Turkish MIT.

Saudi's GIP.

Iran's MOIS.

Isreal's Mossad.

At this point no one knows who killed him.

Every single one is believable because they pull this snip all the time.

This story will be long gone before this month ends. Most Americans didn't care if Saudi's killed one of their own anyway. Khashoggi is just the latest...there will be many more to follow.

The Saudis have a virtual death grip on the US economy, they've proven it multiple times in the past with their ability to manipulate and control oil prices.

As long as that exists, whatever administration is in power will have to look the other way from Saudi atrocities and human rights issues, and just about anything they want to get away with. Kiss them, their royal asses or else...

I was hoping Trump wouldn't be one of those.
