Jamal Khashoggi "knew a lot about the Saudi government's involvement in 9/11", said families' lawyer

This was from two months ago (November 2019).

Why was Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi murdered?

Speculation about the motive for Khashoggi’s assassination inside Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul has centered on his outspoken criticism of the Saudi government and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, also known as MBS, in opinion pieces published in the Post. Now, a new potential motive is in play.

“Khashoggi was killed not because he was a dissident, but because of his contact with us,” said James Kreindler, a prominent New York attorney who represents thousands of 9/11 family members and survivors who are suing Saudi Arabia.


“As we told the Washington Post the last contact I had with Mr. Khashoggi was via text on Oct 26 2017. I never talked to him by phone and certainly never suggested he go to Turkey for any reason. I ask the government to release any information regarding this claim,” Khalid (bin Salman, brother of MBS and son of King Salman) wrote on Twitter on Nov. 16, 2018.

According to Kreindler, Oct. 26, 2017 was also the day Khashoggi had met with an investigator for the 9/11 families in Washington.

“Khashoggi was part of the intelligence community and we knew he knew a lot about the Saudi government’s involvement in 9/11. He was connected to the Muslim Brotherhood and to [former Saudi Crown Prince] Muhammad bin Nayef, and that’s the reason our investigator went to speak with him,” said Kreindler. “She said would you come to New York and talk to my boss? He said yes.

“I’m sure that as soon as she left, he called KBS [Khalid bin Salman] and said, ‘Look, the 9/11 lawyers are on to me. They know that I know what you guys did and I didn’t give ‘em anything, but you’re holding my kid in Saudi Arabia and if you harm him I will.’ So my belief is that Khashoggi was killed not because he was a dissident, there are lots of dissidents, but because he was holding this ax over the Saudis’ heads.”


Exactly what Khashoggi might have known, if anything, about the government of Saudi Arabia’s involvement in 9/11 may never be known. No information was obtained from Khashoggi during the October 2017 session. “It was a preliminary meeting,” said Kreindler.

3. I'm a Conspiracy Theorist, and I would need to see a lot more evidence. A lot more.

So, Khashoggi sat on this info for 16 years, even though he was a dissident reporter making a career in the USA? And the Royals just let him be, for all these years, even after he went to work for The Washington Post?

They dismembered him with a bone saw. These are not subtle people.

We already know what they did on 9/11. We just aren't going to do anything about it.

4. Khashoggi was not a dissident reporter until very late in his life.

He (and his family going back to his grandfather) was well-connected to the House of Saud - as well-connected as, for example, the bin Laden family.

He even worked for long-time head of Saudi intelligence and then Ambassador to the United Kingdom and (briefly) the United States Prince Turki bin Faisal - who had been Osama bin Laden’s patron in the 1980s war in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union. And Khashoggi publicly defended MBS, at least initially. His conversion to full-fledged Saudi dissident happened within the last year or two of his life.

I’m inclined to believe this story.
