Aide to Saudi Crown Prince, Suspect in Khashoggi Case, Shown Walking into Consulate

By Rick Gladstone
Oct. 18, 2018

A frequent companion of Saudi Arabia’s crown prince entered the country’s consulate in Istanbul just hours before Jamal Khashoggi, a dissident writer, disappeared inside, according to a time-stamped photograph published on Thursday by a pro-government Turkish newspaper.

The photograph of the companion, who has been previously identified as Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, is one of the most striking pieces of evidence to date linking Mr. Khashoggi’s Oct. 2 disappearance and possible death to the crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman.

The Saudi authorities have denied any involvement but have provided no information on Mr. Khashoggi’s fate and say they are investigating as well.

The Turkish newspaper, Sabah, also showed photographs of Mr. Mutreb outside the Saudi consul general’s home, leaving a Turkish hotel with a large suitcase, and leaving the country from Istanbul’s international airport — all later that day ...

1. Saudi former diplomat called 'pivotal' in apparent assassination

By Tim Lister, Gul Tuysuz and Laura Smith-Spark, CNN

Ankara (CNN)Saudi intelligence officer and former diplomat Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb played a "pivotal role" in the apparent assassination of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a source familiar with the Turkish investigation has told CNN.

The source said that Mutreb was fully aware of "the plot" of the operation.

Mutreb, who was the first secretary at the Saudi embassy in London and has been described as a colonel in Saudi intelligence, is closely connected to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. "He was seconded to an elite protection brigade within the Royal Guard to serve as the personal security force of [the crown prince]," a Saudi source told CNN.

Mutreb appeared in photographs alongside bin Salman during the crown prince's tour of the United States earlier this year ...

A lot of eyes are watching his movements.

3. Wonder if the evil crown prince can get Mutreb out of circulation like he has done others

Wasn't there another of the murderers already offed in a car "accident" in Riyadh yesterday?

It becomes problematic for this supposed heir to the throne to start killing off his own security apparatus.

While we're sorting out this mess in the house of saud, could we start looking at the saudi support of the 9/11 group as well as other kingdom support of terrorism around the region and world?

4. Wish we had the opportunity to show the world the truth about 9/11 & Saudi

It would take a solid Dem majority & seriously adept & wanting organized group to take that head on.

We have the beed to reveal the truth & we have the people to do it.
We just need to give them the full power necessary.

Thats a tough one though since so much falls under NatSec.
I wish we could.
