Khashoggi’s body parts found in the Garden of Saudi Consul’s Residence in Istanbul

Body parts belonging to murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi have been found, according to Sky News.
The whole Khashoggi incident is bizarre, it doesn’t make any sense. We don’t know whether we can trust any news coming out from any media. I certainly do not believe any narrative given, especially from the mainstream. What sad is that how come one shady journalist counts more that it is given most of attention from the news media while millions of Yemeni, other people suffering from wars and dissidents tortured or killed not receiving the same media attention.

Insights Into The Khashoggi Ordeal; Who And Why

In this insane historical era in which we currently live, events, their causes and consequences do not necessarily follow this particular logical sequence of reporting and analyzing; and we have to get used to much worse.
To this effect, a week ago, it was almost impossible to work out who “killed” Khashoggi and why even though the financial and political and consequences were fairly obvious. However, the events of the few days that followed are beginning to shed some light for speculation about the how and why Mr. Khashoggi was killed and who did it.

Is This Why Jeff Bezos Has Kept Quiet On WaPo Employee Khashoggi’s Disappearance?

Deafeningly silent, however, is Khashoggi’s own boss – Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos, who has yet to issue any sort of statement. Perhaps Bezos has refrained from issuing a statement due to a lucrative deal to set up data centers in Saudi Arabia – a plan announced last year. 
Amazon also has an office in Riyadh for Souq.com, the Middle Eastern e-commerce company that it acquired last year for $580 million.

The Washington Post, as It Shames Others, Continues to Pay and Publish Undisclosed Saudi Lobbyists and Other Regime Propagandists

On Monday night, Hiatt emailed the Intercept and told us that “both lobbying firms” in which Washington Post writers are partners (Glover Park and BGR) “have ended their contracts with Saudi Arabia.” He pointed to this Washington Post story, published late Monday afternoon, reporting that “The Glover Park Group notified the Saudi Embassy in Washington that is was canceling its two-year-old contract to represent the kingdom, according to a person with knowledge of the move” and “separately, the GOP-founded lobbying powerhouse BGR Group, which had an $80,000-a-month contract with the Saudi government, announced it was also dropping the kingdom as a client.” The announcements of these contract cancellations came after The Intercept published this story. Hiatt did not respond to any of the other inquiries posed to him.

Loyal to the Saudi Regime, Jamal Khashoggi Was No Campaigner for Truth or Democracy

Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi journalist, who disappeared in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last week is not quite the critic of the Saudi regime that the Western media says he is, writes As’ad AbuKhalil.
Khashoggi was a loyal member of the Saudi propaganda apparatus. There is no journalism allowed in the kingdom: there have been courageous Saudi women and men who attempted to crack the wall of rigid political conformity and were persecuted and punished for their views. Khashoggi was not among them.

The Khashoggi Extortion Fiasco

A mystifying diplomatic escalation ensued following the disappearance of Saudi Washington Post columnist, Jamal Khashoggi, after visiting the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.
Why would the United States of America make such a fuss over the disappearance of a non-American citizen? And since when did Erdogan worry about human rights? Even Western business leaders are cancelling trade deals with Saudi Arabia and asking its government for explanations. Let us not forget that America does not only ignore the war on Yemen, but it also assists the Saudis and supplies them with arms and intelligence. Why would the President of the United States of America be personally involved in this?

Whitewashing Jamal Khashoggi’s Elimination Likely

The West values Saudi oil, super-wealth, and investments too much to let the kingdom’s elimination of Jamal Khoshoggi disrupt longstanding relations more than short-term. Trump tried deflecting attention from its responsibility for what happened, saying king Salman claims to know nothing about it, adding maybe “rogue killers” were behind it.
Suggesting elements other than Saudi’s ruling family ordered Khashoggi’s elimination defies logic. He disappeared after entering its consulate, never emerging, the kingdom clearly responsible for what happened.

Did Saudis, CIA Fear Khashoggi 9/11 Bombshell?

The macabre case of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi raises the question: did Saudi rulers fear him revealing highly damaging information on their secret dealings? In particular, possible involvement in the 9/11 terror attacks on New York in 2001. The Washington Post this week is reporting that US intelligence sources knew from telecom intercepts that the Saudis were planning to abduct Khashoggi. That implicates the House of Saud in a dastardly premeditated act of murder. This same disclosure could also, unwittingly, implicate US intelligence.
Jamal Khashoggi may have known too many dark secrets about US and Saudi intel collusion, primarily related to the 9/11 terror incidents. And with his increasing volubility as a critical journalist in a prominent American news outlet, it may have been time to silence him. The Saudis as hitmen, the American CIA as facilitators.

Could Killing of Washington Post Writer by Saudi ‘Murder Team’ Finally Put Crack in US Support of ‘Criminal Regime’?

Spurring fresh outrage among those who criticize the cozy relationship between the U.S. government and the Saudi monarchy—with emphasis on Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS)—political dissident and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi Arabia national living in self-imposed exile abroad, was tortured and killed last week by a Saudi government ‘murder team,’ according to Turkish sources, while inside the Saudi consulate building in Istanbul, Turkey.
The killing, if confirmed, would mark a startling escalation of Saudi Arabia’s effort to silence dissent. Under direction from the crown prince, Saudi authorities have carried out hundreds of arrests under the banner of national security, rounding up clerics, business executives and even women’s rights advocates.

WaPo Learns The High Price of Doing Saudi Arabia’s PR after Alleged Murder of Its Own Columnist

For much of the past 15 years, The Washington Post has repeatedly published reports that essentially amount to press releases for the Saudi government promoting Saudi government “reforms.” If true, this is a horrific crime, the assassination of a journalist in his own country’s consulate on foreign soil — something without precedent in modern times.”
