These idiot Saudis have really messed up, haven’t they?
Going after a WaPo journalist with contacts in DC? My, they have gotten too bold.
It took seven minutes for Jamal Khashoggi to die, a Turkish source who has listened in full to an audio recording of the Saudi journalist’s last moments told Middle East Eye.
Khashoggi was dragged from the consul-general’s office at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and onto the table of his study next door, the Turkish source said.
Horrendous screams were then heard by a witness downstairs, the source said.
“The consul himself was taken out of the room. There was no attempt to interrogate him. They had come to kill him,” the source told MEE.
The screaming stopped when Khashoggi – who was last seen entering the Saudi consulate on 2 October – was injected with an as yet unknown substance.
I assume that the Saudi hitmen were far less professional, but it could have looked something like this.
Salah Muhammad al-Tubaigy, who has been identified as the head of forensic evidence in the Saudi general security department, was one of the 15-member squad who arrived in Ankara earlier that day on a private jet.
Tubaigy began to cut Khashoggi’s body up on a table in the study while he was still alive, the Turkish source said.
The killing took seven minutes, the source said.
As he started to dismember the body, Tubaigy put on earphones and listened to music. He advised other members of the squad to do the same.
“When I do this job, I listen to music. You should do [that] too,” Tubaigy was recorded as saying, the source told MEE.
A three-minute version of the audio tape has been given to Turkish newspaper Sabah, but they have yet to release it.
So yeah, gruesome stuff.
But what did they do with the body?
Inquiring minds want to know.
What information did this guy have that he had to be killed?
I assume he had some juicy info. That would seem to be the clear-cut reason for why he was dispatched, no?
Although the fact that he wanted to launch some opposition movement might have been the reason.
Either way, his death might serve as the catalyst that America needed to stop having to hang out with this bizarre desert death cult.
We should focus on that.
A clean divorce with the Saudis is a clean divorce with funding Islamic terror in the Middle East and Europe.
Which is something that we can all get behind.
