Didn't have this on my 2021 bingo card.  Damn.

Since it isn't a newsflash, I already know it isn't MBS.
 
2021-12-07 3:57:43 PM  
Good, but unless the Saudi "crown prince" is going to be arrested, too, it's hardly justice. In 2021, royalty should not exist, but it definitely shouldn't be able to get away with literal murder.
 
2021-12-07 3:57:50 PM  
I thought MBS ordered it.  Is this his patsy?
 
2021-12-07 3:57:50 PM  
...do we skip to the end where nothing happens, he is released back to Saui Arabia and suddenly OPEC lowers prices for a few weeks unexpectedly?

Because that's how this usually works....

Have they guy flip on his master.  Then if the Saudi Royalty are implicated, have Biden nuke the country.  Then we take their oil.

They'll piece this together from the ground-up.

"Partially"

Not MBS so it's "fake news!"

The man who ordered it, sitting beside the reason he will never face any consequences at all:

All you negative nancies really make me sad. If you only believe that MBS will face consequences strong enough, those beliefs will magically come true. Watch a Disney film every once in a while and figure out how the real world works.

Whatever fiction allows them to continue the grift for oil with the narrowest moral justification.
 
2021-12-07 4:03:36 PM  
They arrested Mohammed bin Salman? Awesome.

Sounds like the Kashoggi family will finally be able to pick up the pieces

yes i'm going to hell

Saudi Arabia said the former Washington Post journalist had been killed in a "rogue operation" by a team of agents sent to persuade him to return to the kingdom.

That's some serious BS. Even if they were totally rogue you are still responsible for their actions

Yeah, but don't look for handbaskets- they're on backorder, supply chain, etc.

MBS is safe.
Henchmen are expendable.
Meh

There are reports now that this may be a case of mistaken identity.

Mohammed bin Salman was in Paris?

Oh. Wait....

Send him back to Turkey - in small boxes.

I'm just glad MBS's security team is assisting with the investigation. They really saw this through.

Just like Jan 6th scunners and TFG

A Saudi court convicted eight unnamed people over the murder in 2019. Five of them were found guilty of directly participating in the killing and handed death sentences that were later commuted to 20-year prison terms, while three others were jailed for seven to 10 years for covering up the crime.

"We'd tell you their names, but they're from Canada so you wouldn't know them anyway."

They did not go rogue, they were following direct orders from MBS. Both Turkish intelligence and the CIA have said so publicly. You probably can't find many things in the last 10 years those 2 organizations agree on, but they've both gone on record saying Khashoggi was killed on direct orders from the crown prince.

Lots of people probably look very long and very hard to make this happen.  Good on them - perhaps a good story behind this.

If Saud family didn't see consequences for 9-11, I doubt they'll see consequences over this.
