Suspected Assasinators Of Khashoggi Appears To Be From Close Circle Of Saudi Crown Prince

Donate

On October 16th, unnamed Turkish officials reportedly provided the Washington Post with scans of passports supposedly carried by seven men who were part of the 15-person team suspected in the disappearance and likely killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The passports add to the public information provided by Turkish officials as it seeks to fill out gaps in the narrative of what purported after Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate on October 2nd. The Washington Post published the passports, but obscured the names and faces of the suspects, because it reportedly had no time to verify the people’s identities.

Turkey maintains that Jamal had been killed and dismembered within the Saudi Arabian consulate. It also claims that a 15-man team dispatched from Saudi Arabia played a major role in the killing. One man from the group is the head of the medical forensics department in the Saudi ministry of interior.

Turkish officials also reportedly confirmed that the 15 names reported in the Daily Sabah are the actual names of the suspects.

Saudi Arabian officials have repeatedly denied any involvement in the disappearance of Khashoggi. The Saudi side also allowed Turkish investigators into the consulate.

The Washington Post, however, reported that the investigators were frustrated by a lack of cooperation from the Saudi side, citing the long delay and the attempts to scrub the scene by bringing in a cleaning crew.

A report on the Saudi-owned al-Arabiya news channel said the 15 suspects were “Tourists” who had been falsely accused.

On the same day, the New Your Times reported that four of the suspects had ties to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. One of them, with pictures provided, could be considered a frequent companion of the Crown Prince. “Seen disembarking from airplanes with him in Paris and Madrid and photographed standing guard during his visits this year to Houston, Boston and the United Nations,” the NYT reported.

Three other suspects are linked by witnesses and other records to the Saudi crown prince’s security detail.

The NYT also claimed that it has independently confirmed that at least 9 of the 15 suspects worked for the Saudi security services, military or government ministries. “One of them, Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, was a diplomat assigned to the Saudi Embassy in London in 2007, according to a British diplomatic roster. He traveled extensively with the crown prince, perhaps as a bodyguard.”

The Crown Prince and his father King Salman have denied any knowledge of Khashoggi’s whereabouts. The NYT reported that Saudi officials did not even respond to requests to comment on their findings.

According to reports from October 14th, the Saudi side was expected to release a report acknowledging that Jamal was killed in the consulate. The one to blame was supposed to be an intelligence agent who made a mistake while interrogating Khashoggi and ended up killing him. On the same day, President Trump floated the possibility that the journalist was the victim of “rogue killers.” However, the suspects’ links to the Crown Prince make it difficult to indemnify him from blame.

This all happens as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Saudi Arabia and spoke to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. He was cited as saying that Riyadh is being treated as “guilty until proven innocent.” Something he had no issue with every time it happens to Moscow and Beijing.

Donald Trump has also urged against rushing to blame Saudi Arabia over the disappearance. It once again becomes apparent that the US will support its allies in the face of Saudi Arabia, similarly to how it supports Israel. Any humanitarian issues are easily and instantly abandoned when they do not correlate with Washington’s interests. Similarly to the incident when a Saudi airstrike struck a school bus and killed 40 children, the US will find a way to find an excuse for one of its key allies in the Middle East.

The US is coming into mid-term elections on November 4th and a rising price of fuel would not benefit Donald Trump. He also requires the finalizing of the $110 billion weapons deal with Saudi Arabia. Furthermore, pressuring Iran and cutting off the Islamic Republic’s oil exports would be night impossible without Saudi assistance.

    Noooo, not the passports. Come on turkey, invent your own tricks, dont steal the passport from your “enemy” USA.

  • Gregory Casey

    Sometimes, it just happens that one reprehensible regime, in this instance, Turkey is able to show, without fakery that another, at least equally and, most probably far more reprehensible Regime, in this case, Saudi Arabia has committed an egregious crime in the public space. Both Leaders of these Criminal Regimes, Sultan Erdogan and Prince of Darkness bin-Salman are now trying their absolute best to try and hoodwink or otherwise impress the Greatest Con-Man on the Planet

    • javier

      i read the other day that the lovely saudi folks are targeting the food infrastructure in yemen but not a peep from the msm , but then one fat connected fuck is killed and the empire goes nuts, sad times

      • Gregory Casey

        Unfortunately, that is the case.

      The Saudi killing covert squad has not only exposed in murdering of Jamal Khashoggi. The US, UK and their stooges Saudis and Israeli days are numbered now. Either they will become humans or they all will die. They have invaded hundreds of countries including Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan. They have assassinated their leaders. Because US, UK and their allies said that this is a fun lets go and enjoy the killing of Muslims children with their parents. That is why God created Russia and China to defend his people from evils like US and their allies. Indeed God knows better.

      • d’Artagnan

        Well China has done jack, but Russia and Iran are in the forefront of fight against US and Wahabbi terror.

    • d’Artagnan

      The Saudi regime is a collection of murderous thugs that serve US and Zionist agenda. The British created this monster that is now being sustained by US and the west for its OIL. The headchoppers also play a devious role in dividing the fractious Arabs and sponsoring Wahhabi terror in the region and beyond.

    • Brother Ma

      Yes. Turkey has shown the truth but only afterTURKEY ITSELF allowed cleaners into the Saudi embassy BEFORE Turkish investigators entered.
      Now why would you do that?

      you know what i think is really funny? As soon as the Mass Media presents some story that fit in your worldview, all of you swallow it like candy ;))))))

      • Merijn

        Nope…the Head & the Heart tells me…sometimes I have been wrong but in 70% of all cases I was right or very close to the Truth….or it turns out that I was wrong all along….they take a very long time for the Execution of their Plans…decades…

        • matt

          better use your more sophisticated part of your brain instead of the reptile part…

          • Merijn

            I’m pretty basic & primitive… what I’ve learned in recent years is the pure Treason of the Western Governments… their Crimes should be punished with Execution if found guilty by an independent Court… this is how Brutal their Crimes have been….Black & White…Good & Bad….keeps things simple…no concessions…

          • matt

            humans are like that, it all started with agriculture….

          • Merijn

            They Destroyed the Hunter Gatherer and his Habitat…Don’t want to live on the Reservation? You Die… we kill your food and Starve you and your Family to Death….Or Shoot’m Up…until none is left… Kill the Intelligent, Strong & Righteous Sheep…and keep the Brainless Ones… Breeding Sheeple…is what it is

          • matt

            yes they did, the biggest scam in history might have been the agricultural revolution

          • Geoff Griffiths

            It is not agriculture per se, even Australian Aborigines have firestick agriculture to increase food supply.
            The problem lies in the Western model of selfish man, and then designing systems to facilitate that.
            Human nature is best seen in a nursing mother feeding her child. The rest is conditioning for exploitation.
            Permaculture is a nature friendly life enhancing system free of negative outputs.
            It is a lower state of consciousness to think of win/lose solutions. Win/win is the nature of the universe and God.

          • matt

            i believe permaculture is a collection of traditional techniques from diferent part of the planet, mixed with modern views….seems a western model to me
            and about aborigines, they are probably the main reason why australia is so dry, because of their interventions
