    This is clear cut pre-meditated murder

    There is no two ways about this

    King Salam must be wondering what imbeciles he gave birth too

    His daughter had a arrest warrant issued by France in early this year

    His son MBS is the most idiotic rocket to come out of the royal family

    I listened to Khashoggi and he was pretty mild ..much softer than Pakistani journalists who take the class of the govt everyday and inside Pakistan. I really don't understand why MBS needed to get him killed.

    Read Royal Saudi laws for those Saudi citizens who speak against the Royal family.

    Do you remember when Canada tweeted about Saudi human rights? Just a few weeks ago

    Saudi went mad and threatened they will recall all 15,000 Saudi students in Canada not a single word from the world community not even US

    Saudi has been over reacting on everything, simply because Trump has backed them 100% and they have been getting away with it

    Too much power and it got to their heads, your right he wasn't even a dissident he was a mild reporter

    But MBS has basically got too big for his shoes and for him he failed foresee the Turkish reaction which was a Turkish delight

    This Khashoggi figure was once a very close ally to the Saudi royal family, but became a liability once things became sour. I still don't know what exactly caused a rift between the two sides, but it was serious. This critical bit of information remains unreported. What has become clear is that the man knew a lot of secrets about the Saudi royal family and was obviously a good asset to have in time of need.

    As you guessed, Khashoggi ran off to the US and sought asylum. He basically became a rougue agent and that is why a lot of the Western media is in uproar. Khashoggi was critical of the Saudi royals in his Washington Post columns. He had a license from the Americans to go after Saudi royal family. Kinda like the Saudi Hussain Haqqani in exile. The Western recruit has been liquidated without making any impact.

    Why do you think the Saudis went as far as luring this Khashoggi into a consulate and taking him out cold-blooded? He was obviously a high value target. The Saudis knew the response, yet they went ahead unrepentantly. He had to be taken out as far as the Saudis were concerned.

    I am afraid this is as much as you and I will ever get to know.

    Everything else you hear or read is BS and score settling between the various conflicting sides.

    That is not a secret anymore. The Saudis came in, completed the job and left all the traces purposefully.

    They’re objecting. Their intelligence is just crap (fortunately)

    They are objecting, but the Saudis have made a statement. These two can go hand in hand.

    I have some more news. The Saudis will remain unscathed.

    Apart from why kill him, I want to know "why kill this way"? To me it seems the Saudis want to show the world how far they would go to silence dissidents.
