Oh Boy, everybody knows this , BUT the CIA confirmed that MBS ordered Khashoggi's death.
This is going to have crazy international implications. How do you go about prosecuting the King of Saudi Arabia? Will there be sanctions? Will we cut of arms sales? Its an arse load of money and power involved here. I am sure the Saudis have so much dirt on the US and other countries that our hands are tied.

"The CIA has concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman personally ordered the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, despite the Saudi government's denials that the de facto ruler was involved, according to a senior US official.

The senior US official told CNN on Friday the conclusion is based on a recording provided by the Turkish government and other evidence, including American intelligence".

It's Saudi Arabia so to an extent they are bullet proof , words will be spoken and disapproval will be shown but I doubt anything will come of this other then some people who were following orders will lose their heads , carrying the can for the boss.

Perhaps now M.B.S has had his fingers burned he will learn a lesson from this.

This feels different, it hasn't died a death after one week like most stories. It will be interesting to see how the EU and US reacts. And the new Dems in Congress for that matter.

There are no real sources for these claims.

Could well a simple hit piece against the Crown Prince while the real traitors get away with it.

The story is just so silly, I mean in an Embassy!

MSM for the Cabal in my opinion.

Why can't we sanction them? Make everything they buy from us go through a HEAVY tariff.

Or we could bomb them.

No body anywhere should be above the law..... Whatever the law is in a country

should be applied to ALL its residence.

Being 'Royal' is an accident of birth, and rather than being an advantage it

should be setting an example.

The calibre and worth of that family will be judged by what they do about the

criminal in the family

Because Saudi money has too much influence in DC. Both sides of the aisle are taking dirty money. As this article states, "Saudi is one of the few bi-partisan issues in DC".

Lobbyists got sanctions overturned to arms sales could continue, which is being used to destroy Yemen.

The EU and US sell many armaments to Saudi and buy much oil from Saudi , Saudi Arabia also own upwards of $166 billion in US debt and no doubt the debt from countries in the EU so the "strategic partnership" between us and them is politically far more important than the murder of one man.

As much as I would like to see M.B.S have his feet held to the fire over the pointless murder of Jamal Khashoggi I don't see much of a prospect of that happening.

Why would it be a hit piece ? , Turkey have shared their evidence with several governments and the conclusion seems to be that M.B.S ordered the killing.
Scapegoats are in custody but the real perpetrator will likely get away with it although he is slightly tarnished.



MSM for the Cabal in my opinion.

Of course , the messenger is the enemy.

On the plus side, the billions in arms sold to them recently by trump probably helped a great deal.

Let's see if trump takes as strong a stand as he did with NK when wambier died... J/k of course he won't. He squabbles with pornstars

The CIA haven't said anything to the public but sources close to the investigation have , this is not official information but it does tally with the general consensus given the evidence available.

The CIA is your defence against the bad guys of the world , don't discount them out of hand.
